Python Interpreter

Hi all!

I am a teacher and have very limited knowledge of replit and why this may be happening but in the past I was able to use the Interpreter feature in the console to quickly have students test operations and look at data types. This feature does not seem to be available any more.

I opened a very old file and it was still present, but newer files do not have the feature. Just wondering if it an option that I can turn on for my students.


I believe this has always been a thing, because Python does not display Datatypes.

You’ll have to do more work to display properties.

Yes, this is still possible.
Use the Python (with Prybar) template to be able to type in the console after running the repl.

Alternatively, you can type python in the Shell to use the interpreter, which has nearly the same effect. (Type exit() to exit.)


I don’t use python

but I believe this would still work


I don’t even know how to navigate to where ever this interpret mode is.

type python3 in the shell then you should be able to do just that.


I was able to use your second option.

How do I open a template? I’m still just a beginner.

Nevermind, I figured it out.
