Evil replit cursor
InvisibleOne (3227)

A purplish replit cursor keeps on messing up my coding. Every minute or so it will suddenly appear and delete one or two of the characters I just wrote, and then disappear again. The repl is private so maybe that has something to do with it?

Does anybody have any solutions?

Yeah, its a bug.
So, the cursor is to indicate when replit has made some changes.
And the bug probably is when replit saves your repl, something went wrong there.

just have to wait until they roll it back

or dev locally @InvisibleOne

yeah it's not doing it quite as frequently now, and if it get's bad enough I can always just use pycharm or something. @Coder100

@Coder100 hi everyone! We have identified the issue on our end and have rolled out a fix. This fix will be picked up once your repl restarts. You can either wait a while for this to happen naturally, or forcefully restart your repl by running kill 1 in the shell.
