On repl.it? Probably but I don't know. It should work because repl.it supports Java

Trust me, I've tried, and it doesn't end well.

@SixBeeps heads up on what went wrong?

@RossJames Welp, the server jar is a very heavy file, so importing it was a little rocky. Getting everything configured was weird, too. You have 500MB CPU to work with, but even with the 2GB the Hacker plan gives you (which is what I had at the time) it wasn't long before the editor started crashing due to how much was going on.
