You can't make .env files anymore, you'll have to use this new GUI by clicking the lock icon in the sidebar (near where the files are kept). Then you just enter the name of a key and its value. And in the repl, you do import os, and my_secret = os.environ['name of your key here']. Good luck! :)

Yes, they have deprecated the .env “file”. To create secrets, go to the padlock icon on the left side of your screen.
