File written to by the program not saving occasionally

I have a program in Go that allows me to make and edit articles.

Sometimes, though the program won't save an edit of the article. The articles are stored via a .json file.

I have noticed that this usually happens if I close out of the window after it says it has successfully been edited, OR I close out of the computer. It always saves if I open the repl and check if it has been saved (as far as I know).

@tussiez told me that it was simply replit not saving sometimes, but I start to doubt that. It shows the edited article, but if I come back the next day the new edit is gone! It must be deleting the contents of the edit, but why? Also, how would I fix this?

Help would be appreciated.

@Baconman321 ^ they're right, once the Repl dies and turns off, the Repl is reset to the last point that a user had interacted with the Repl, therefore any programmatic changes are consequently reset.
