How do I use Replit for my Python console apps?

Description of the problem (please keep it simple and short):

I have just returned to Replit after you removed the always on feature and I don’t know what is going on.

Explain what you were trying to do:

I have a bunch of console apps which sit and runs various tasks. The console output is important because I write a bunch of stuff to the console.

What areas or features are involved?

When I deploy my app, firstly it takes forever to deploy and secondly I have lost access to view the console. This seems a massive step backwards.

It is indeed a massive step backwards. You can no longer host console apps. If you need to see the output, set up a basic HTTP server that displays the output to a webpage and deploy that.

But why would you want to deploy Console apps?

Use a Reserved VM Deployment. If it’s a Python Repl, then using flush=True in the print command will push it to Deployment Logs, which you can look at at any time.
