Console not showing

Problem description: I cant find the console tool on replit .

Expected behavior:

when i hit the “+” sign to add another tool it should show me also the console tool option but it dosnt.

It should be also placed in the left corner of the screen but it isnt there.

Steps to reproduce:

Really dont know, becouse i needed the console tool now and it just dosnt show anywhere and i dont know how to make it appear.

ps. I need that specific “tool console” becouse i have to see the output of a sorting function whit console.log(…).

here some picture where you can see nothing show up

Even thought its the same thing a bug report may be warented since I think console is supposed to show up in the new tab view thing.

sorry, im not english so sometimes i dont understend :sweat_smile: . What are you triying to say to me?

I was replying to @AMDryzen5600X. Basicly I was saying that even thought that topic is about your issue I think the bug report is ok since I think the console should show up in the new tab with the other oppption.

From the screenshot it looks like that’s the “HTML, CSS, JS” template. I don’t think that’s supposed to have a Console, since there’s already a console for JS in the Developer Tools in most web browsers.

Usually it’s right-click > Inspect > Console.

HTML/CSS/JS repls are supposed to have a console. Thats how we debug the JS without needing to edit the webpage with the JS.

Not in any of my html, js, or css projects.

my professor was using it during class i can show you a picture

I can’t find that Console tab in the HTML/CSS/JS template either.

Was he using another programming language? The picture would be great.

@GiuseppeMarti Just click on the wrench icon at the top-right corner and it will show a console. This was an update from a while ago, so the console that appears looks a bit different than the one from the screenshot.

This is what I mean:

Click on that and it will show a console.
In the “HTML, CSS, JS” template, the old console was replaced by that. These new “developer tools” also have other features that the old console didn’t have.

Although I found out that it doesn’t work on Chrome if third-party cookies are blocked. I found this stack trace:

Uncaught DOMException: Failed to read the 'localStorage' property from 'Window': Access is denied for this document.

Works just fine if third-party cookies are not blocked, but many of us like them blocked. Only happens in Chrome.

@not-ethan can this be considered a bug?

Not sure. Make the report and an engineer can answer.

That’s really strange, does it also happen in other of repl owned by you?

@hugoondev Is that question for me or for OP?

i dont own any repl, my professor created a team here and uploaded some exercises. what I can say is that in every exercise that he gave in the course i cant use the console tool and also if i create a new replit with css/html/js the option isnt there either.
