Python interactive Console has disappeared & solution

Recently the interactive console disappeared from new Python repls. This was an intentional decision by replit.

I myself hadn’t noticed this as a problem because I’ve been cloning a known-good repl created in September with a working I/O test configuration (in September the automated I/O testing was broken in the default repl… I just tried it and it seems that it’s now been fixed).

If you choose “Python” as your template you’ll find that the interactive console is gone.

A work-around is to choose ‘Python (with Prybar)’ as your template rather than just ‘Python’. That’ll provide an interactive console.

Don’t they use the system to determine the template of the repl? Whether it’s making a new repl or a team repl, is it not the same, just that the ownership is changed?
