Repl.it now will sync your files in realtime. It even has a neat little cursor for when the system is giving you file updates 🤯

Try forking this repl, running it, and going to henlo.txt to see it in action:

So does this mean that editing files through repl may soon become stable?

@AllAwesome497 everything, overall should be a lot more stable today than it used to be. But, tell me, what exactly in your experience is not stable ?

@amasad Tested, and it is still an issue, (at least using the python method)
here is an example:
https://repl.it/@AllAwesome497/Python-file-storage-bug
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.

@AllAwesome497 that is a bug. We're looking into it.

With regards to realtime file updates it does actually work in Python. Try this: https://repl.it/@amasad/realtime-python-updates

@amasad Neat ok. Even if we can't use files as databases.
