How do I disable replit from coverting my repl to Nix

I was recently looking at old repls when I opened one up it displayed a screen that,
The repl was converting to Nix.


  1. The title
  2. Does old repls that has not been converted can still run on replit?

  1. You can’t really stop replit from converting to Nix, except for viewing on the published page,.
  2. Yes, but replit will convert them eventually

why? Nix is a good way of managing packages. If there’s an issue, could you link the repl?

if you want one that has’ent been converted
here the link

if i cant stop making them convert it
then how do i backup the old repl and replitcate the same env?

write nix = false in .replit file where its says things like language = “python”


But I think you can. :slight_smile:

but how do i chage it if i go to replit it will convert

My repl was auto converted too and lost every every python file I had inside. And I can’t find any way to restore.

Hey @xWonder87x! That should not be happening. Can you please send me the link to your Repl so I can escalate this to the engineers?

Nevermind, I’ve replied to your post directly here
