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?

Package files are basically package that repl.it makes when you import an outside source, or install something. You choose your own packages too, by clicking on that icon.

well that’s not entirely correct. Package files are used for configuration of your project, which dependencies are needed, what tools the project uses, etc. It’s not just “what Repl imports”. You should keep them if you don’t want to recreate a package file again and again when your project starts.

@MartinRimes
so it's like a installation, something repl.it installs.
