Python console - multiple instances


It seems that replit now gives multiple instances of the console, I am wondering if there is a way to not have this. I am teaching to a class of middle schoolers and they keep asking why each time they run their program it runs a new instance of the console. This is a recent issue that has caused some problems.

I am not entirely sure this is the right subforum, if it isn’t and this is more for bugs, please let me know.

Unfortunately there’s currently nothing you can do about it. You could vote this feature request, but it’s unlikely that the change will be reverted:

Nope, you’re right, this is the place to post questions and report bugs.


They should add a setting or option. Most updates in replit should have a way to revert or configure the features.

Dang, I was afraid that was the case. Guess I will need to teach them to clear the history as their testing their work lol
