does anyone know what packager files are they suddenly appeared in my repl when I tried a test run, are they in my repl because of how big my repl has gotten, is it to big with to many files and folders?

Heya @MartinRimes

Package files are used for configuration of your project (project name, author, license, scripts), which dependencies are needed (it’s where Yarn and NPM store their dependencies), what tools the project uses (again, scripts, linter I believe), etc. It’s something practically any project creates to manage it (kinda like an “abstract“ of the project). You should keep them if you don’t want to recreate a package file again and again when your project starts.
