Automatic migrating to Nix

How to stop replit from automatic migrating to nix every time I open my previous repls

You can’t as far as I know. Maybe create a feature request.


IIRC before it was using docker (prob wrong) but now it uses Nix so Replit probably doesn’t want to go back, so the feature request probably could do nothing.

Why is this a bad thing?

maybe because its a bit (sometimes an understatement), slow. And, it might cause your train of thought to get lost.

Maybe add a progress bar to allow the user to focus on something? afaik its a technique that can make users less distracted

Welcome to Ask, @abhishek1911!

You might be able to stop Replit from automatically migrating Repls to Nix by adding ?skipMigration=1 to the end of the URL, after your username and repl slug.

It should look something like this once you’re done:


They still use Docker containers, now they just also use Nix.
