Forever 'running' in case of error

Problem description:
The console shows ‘running’ even though there’s been an error.

Expected behavior:
The console should stop running.

Actual behavior:
The console shows running, like forever.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Get a repl
  2. Write some code that produces an error
  3. Run it
    (There might be some errors that terminates the programs, but most don’t.)
    (Also, I’m using c++)

Browser: Chrome
OS: Windows 11
Device (Android, iOS, NA leave blank): Lenovo
Desktop app version (Avatar menu->“Version”) or NA: NA
Plan (Free, Replit Core): Replit Core
Here is an example of an error that makes keeps it running forever:

notice that green dot in the top right corner. (not my pfp)

it causes inconveniences when I press the ‘clear console’ button, and the error doesn’t go away.

Could you provide a link to a Repl where you are able to reproduce this issue? This would help the community try to help you out with this issue.


Try closing the console tab in your IDE and reopening it. If that does not work, than try to close replit and re-open it(Make sure your code is saved first).


I had this every time I open replit (every day) it’s just I reported it now.
