  1. I am having the Gitlab repository cloning problem. How do I resolve this problem?
    Ans: Try git clone https://username@hostname/username/repo.git.

  2. The git commands fail with a certificate error. How do I resolve this problem?
    Ans: This certificate error is due to use of self-signed SSL certificates in AutolabJS. You can bypass the error by execuing,
    export GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY=1.
    After executing the above command, git will no longer throw an error for self-signed certificates.


  1. After submitting a evaluation request, the screen keeps showing "Evaluating" but does not return the results. What should I do?
    Ans: Please check your submitted code if it has any form of infinite loop situation and correct it. Try to run the code you wish to submit on the local machine before requesting an evaluation. If not, it might be due to the load on the server. Please be patient and do not submit multiple evaluation requests in a short duration. Let the lab assistants/administrator know if the problem persists for a long duration.

AutolabJS CLI

  1. Do you have a CLI tool to ease the submission process?
    Ans: Yes, there is. Please see the relevant help documentation for a way to install and use AutolabJS CLI.
