I've run in to a problem with my code. I'm trying to create a game for me and my friends just to have some fun togheter and challenge my self. The problem I've gotten is that for some reason my code can't write in .txt files and save that information if you're using the link to directly run the code: https://testing-accounts.carlliljencrant.repl.run and you can not write in the text file so that i can see it in the text file using this link either: https://repl.it/@CarlLiljencrant/testing-accounts Does someone have a solution to this?

Files made programmatically don't really update on repl.it. I'd suggest using an external database such as PostgreSQL or even google sheets API

@Lord_Poseidon I've done some googleing and came across PostgreSQL, but can you use something inside repl.it? Can you use google sheets API in repl.it?

You can use Google Sheets API on repl.it
use the package manager to install the module

@Lord_Poseidon Google Sheets API is great and all, but it is not particularly easy to set up. I recommend Airtable API, which uses a database-like format to store everything. https://airtable.com/api
