Is it possible to run another wholly separate Repl from another Repl?

I'm not after running another file intra-repl; I have a niche need to 'cold-start' another wholly separate repl on-demand for a project.

Can this be done?

nope

well maybe
here's the janky way:

  • repl 1 pings the HTTP server of repl 2
  • repl 2, if it wasn't already running (or not stopped) will now turn on

Well... yes... I guess...
You could use html to open your other repl and ping the other repl thing and it will turn on...
