Creating a repository with Classroom link fails

(Thomas Amberg) #1

Hi, many students have the issue that creating / copying the classroom repo with the classroom link stalls and no repository is created. Is there a way to recover? (Besides deleting empty created repos, which does not always help.) Kind regards, Thomas

Hey Thomas. This happened to me a couple of times too. This is a documented issue that should have been resolved, but I guess there are still some cases that come up here and there.

Anyway, the only method I thought of handling the issue is either cancel the operation then import the repo, or cancel the operation and manually clone, add, commit, push your starter code.

Both require a student repository. So far I’ve seen that as long as students accept the assignment, you can browse to their repo and cancel it then do what I said above.

Here’s a link to the issue on GitHub, the method I mentioned, and others’ comments on the GitHub issue (

Hope it helps!
