I’m a Middle School teacher new to p5js and using it with one of my 6th grade classes. My students seem to keep loosing their work despite my constant reminders to manually save. (They are in the bad habit of assuming everything online auto saves for them.) There is an autosave feature in the settings of the editor, but I can’t tell if it is working. It seems the only thing it does is alert them before closing the tab, is that right?
yes it’s a bit finicky. There are other environments like openprocessing (which also doesn’t have autosave but shows a big “save” button), glitch (which autosaves but you need to set up for p5.js) and repl.it (same as glitch). They all offer free tier so take a look and find what works the best for you
