Temporary unnamed & unsaved coding menu

Describe your feature request
I would be overjoyed if you could add a temporary area for coding. Something temporary maybe used for experimenting with a new feature you learned in your prefered programming language. It’s not saved when closed and can only be viewed by you (or maybe others if you invite them.

What problem(s) would this feature solve?
Sometimes I want to experiment with a new feature or am just bored and want to code, but want to keep it private and unsaved.

Explain what you were trying to do when you came across the problem leading to this feature request
I was looking to see if I could use https links in python and wanted to experiment with my findings.

Private code can be achieved via Private Repls, a feature included with both of Replit’s paid plans. The ability to tinker with your code without messing up what users see is a feature of deployments I believe. In addition, autoscale and static deployments (with certain amounts of resources) are included with paid plans. So, if you pay for Hacker, you should be able to achieve both of these goals.


In python for most purposes, using the interpreter in the shell or console to test some stuff is enough: python.


Just open a Notepad window…I don’t think this is feature-worthy

But then you can’t run it…?

Ohh I see.

@randomcat962 For now just float a window of a separate file and run it. I don’t think anybody will really be intensely looking into your Repl.
