Changes won't save
Super new to coding so not used to overwriting files and stuff yet. Basically I had this set up so if you enter a person's name it rewrites the date in their file for today's date.
I tried this multiple times a few weeks ago and repl.it would permanently save the changes, but at some point it stopped. Now if I re-run the script after inputting a name, it will correctly show today's date for that person but then if I refresh it will load the original date.
I haven't changed anything in the code with respect to how it overrwrites files since them .. I just don't understand why it would save changes and now won't, and I can't find a way to manually save other than going into that file and typing/deleting.
File persistence is a bit weird in Repl.it. If you run things from the editor, you might be able to run things just fine, whereas anywhere else it won't save. This is a known thing, and it's not a bug; it's just how things work.
If you want to store things consistently, you need to learn about online databases and how to use them in your code.
