Prompt removed from node projects

I see repl have removed support for prompt input from node.js projects after years of having it in. Why would they do that??

The Replit console still supports text input. You can do this by using the readline-sync package.

const readlineSync = require("readline-sync");
const username = readlineSync.question("Enter username: ");

thanks - I know there are workarounds like this but it was just nice to have it already set up. Fortunately I have just discovered that the node with prybar repl template still has prompt built in so my issue is solved!
