So something in this update may have changed, because I'm unable to even create files in Java programs. It apparently gets created because subsequent calls to "createNewFile()" indicates that the file already exists, but upon refreshing the page it creates the file again as if it never existed. During the whole time, there is no file (or folder) present in the left-hand window.

Also sorry for the delayed response I had to write that script and I couldn't remember how to do it as its been a while since I have.
Edit: also forgot to mention, it also still doesn't update it live in python.
