"can't connect to the Glitch API" - Editor not working


Hey there,

I wanted to try this site. I was told it’s better than plnkr.co. I would’nt know, because it’s nor working for me. Here is what I did:

  • signed up via github
  • clicked edit
  • “Our editor can’t connect to the Glitch API. Is your computer online?”

I tried logging in with Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome and Chrome on mobile. Three different devices, three different networks.All versions are up to date. I even whitelisted the site and let all those tiny trackers in. Nothing changed. There are a few people with the same problem, but their solutions (switch the browser) did not work for me.

What am I doing wrong?

Best regards


if you visit glitch.com/edit directly do you still see the same connection issue?


This should be fixed up now. Let us know if you still have problems.


Hey Gareth,

Whatever has changed, it works now (at least on mobile, couldn’t test it at a Windows machine yet).

Thanks a lot for the prompt help :slight_smile:


Yep, tried that as well. Didn’t work either. Works now though.
