I know the variables in my file are underlined in green because in the file thus far they have not been used. Is there any way I can get rid of them in the meantime?
Nope! That's part of repl.it and they don't have a setting in which you can remove it. Maybe you could just print the variable, or add something to it and then remove that line before you actually use it.
Please mark this as the answer if it helped
