Troubleshooting DartPad

This page describes solutions to problems that might occur when you’re trying to use DartPad, whether at or in a page that has embedded DartPads. For an overview of DartPad, see the DartPad page.

Embedded DartPads don’t appear

The homepage and many codelabs have embedded DartPads. If these DartPads don’t appear at all, then try the following:

  • Make sure you’re using a supported browser. DartPad might not work in other browsers, and is known not to work in the default configuration of the Brave browser.

  • If you’re using an ad blocker, disable it.

  • Check whether you’ve disabled third-party tracking cookies (Chrome instructions). If you’ve disabled cookies, change your settings to allow cookies for If you’re using embedded DartPads, such as in the Dart cheatsheet codelab or the implicit animations codelab, you might need to allow cookies for the embedding site domain, as well (in these cases, and, respectively).

  • If you repeatedly reload a page that contains embedded DartPads, then you might run into GitHub rate limiting. Within 60 minutes, you should be able to reload the page and see code in the embedded DartPads.

Although DartPad doesn’t use cookies, it does rely on local storage, which browsers usually disable when cookies are disabled.
