Stuck on Loading

Hi. I’m trying to get familiar with JS using p5.js. I downloaded p5.js complete, headed to the Get Started page and, as described, typed

ellipse(50, 50, 80, 80); 

in my (desktop) editor to test it out.

In Firefox, the result is a circle in the top-left corner. But in Chrome, nothing appears but “Loading…”. Also does not work in Opera. Only Firefox.

Can anyone shed a light on this? Appreciate any help.

Thank you for reading.

Hi, GoToLoop, thank you for responding.

I still would like to get to the bottom of my problem because, even if I start using an online editor now, eventually I want to set up my offline environment and to code in VSCode as I always do. (And because I’m curious to know why it doesn’t work on Chrome!)

Btw, I’d love to see some of your sketches, if you don’t mind sharing.


Thank you for thanking the time to help me. A web server worked like a charm. I also just notice that you had shared your sketches earlier but I didn’t see the little arrow to expand the messages, sorry about that. Good stuff. E tu é brasileiro? Olha que mundo pequeno! Grande abraço.

PS.: Just in case anyone in the future faces the same problem and find this thread, I also had to move the files from “empty-example” to the p5 folder, where the p5.js is, and edit the src path within the index.html file. Then launch the whole folder p5 into the web server.
