Understanding Deployment

Once I deploy my website on Replit, will I still be able to edit it and have it update in real time like with the hosting?

Hey @SabrinaGWC welcome to the forums!

You can still edit it, but you have to choose when to push updates. I hope this helps!

Well if you want to have that effect for while you’re developing, then you can use the development replit.dev URL (what you’ll see in the WebView in the editor). But your Deployment (replit.app) won’t automatically update your site until you press “Deploy” (it’s like a release-based thing).


No? Redeploying is deploying. That’s like calling a new update to your program a “rerelease” instead of a release.
