Describe your feature request
I want to be able to change the type of Repl from HTML to Node. I would normally delete the Repl and recreate it uploading files etc, but if I delete the Repl I lose likes, comments, etc. So I would like to change the type of Repl without losing comments and stuff, basically that the Repl ID stays the same.
Usually, you can just change Nix packages and the
.replit config, but with HTML Repls you can’t as hosting is hard-coded for them. There isn’t even a console tab.
What problem(s) would this feature solve?
I made a popular HTML Repl with static content and now I need to add an Express backend for dynamic content or whatever, and I don’t want the Repl to lose its comments, likes, etc.
Explain what you were trying to do when you came across the problem leading to this feature request
Making some analytics for Bookie’s Bounce.css, he has an HTML Repl but now it would have to be a Node.js Repl.
