im trying to record a response from a users input, and send it to my pc

Coder100 (18109)

oh, well in that case you could.

step 1: write all that user input into some file in your python repl
step 2: download your repl as a zip

and extract the zip to get your file!

I dont think you understand, i want the users input to be sent to my own file. im wondering if this can be automated without the user having to do anything. thanks for the help though! @Coder100

nope, replit won't be able to interact with your computer. @watsonHasAKnife

@watsonHasAKnife Have a python program hooked up with socket io to one on your computer. Have the one on your computer constantly listening for a send from replit
