@Terra361 I hate it when people think Polygott is some sort of magical language that runs repl.it. Anyways the things you do in Makefiles are just bash commands, but there there is more than that. Try looking up a Makefile tutorial (and to run different targets you'll have to configure the .replit file).

@programmeruser Wait, people actually think polygott runs repl.it?

Terra361

@programmeruser I didn't. It's just a Makefile.

programmeruser

@Terra361 well it kind of does, but not the Makefile type. https://github.com/replit/polygott

repl.it is run by toml files @programmeruser

programmeruser

@Coder100 it says hat the polygott repo has instructions on how to add a lang, I don't know why they wanted to call it polygott

Coder100

@programmeruser Poly means many, and gott might be some typo of glot which means language

@Terra361 I know no one is probably listening, but I'd just like to say again: Polygott isn't a makefile! It's a docker image, like a tiny virtual computer, which can run lots of languages (lots of languages are installed on it). Repl preloads the computer with a makefile, but you can delete it and Polygott will still run fine.

@fuzzyastrocat Hmmm. Okay. I think I'll try that eventually.
