What is install-pkg???
OLEGTELENKOV

I've heard other people talking about install-pkg in replit shell but for me it is totally useless (you cant even install packages with it).

It's essentially obsolete now. It did install packages (like wget or nvim or stuff like that), But installed them into a directory that a user can actually edit so didn't need sudo for pakage installation, or having to learn how to use dpkg or whatever. Now though we have nix, which is just better.

@Highwayman Oh, Okay.
