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?

Packager files are just modules. They are libraries which can make coding easier! You can make your own module. But one of the reason's I dont like Python is because it takes forever for the packager files to load.

again, they aren’t just modules. The packager files are used to configure what your project name, license, scripts, author, repository, etc. is. It is also where npm and yarn store their dependencies. Also yeah, Python isn’t very good at load packager files xD.

it’s apparently not just you xD. Nobody seems to know the full purpose of them lmao. Also what is the Python poetry? Is it like the NPM or Yarn for JS?
