Where did Python 2.7 go?

The language I'm most comfortable using, Python 2.7, has vanished. I don't know if it's because it's an outdated language and has been removed, but if it's possible, could the language be brought back? Thanks!

It's been 'hidden'

perhaps in favor of the new nix repls?

But you could bookmark this link: https://replit.com/new/python

@Coder100 This takes you to the new repl page, not specifically for python 2.7. The only python option is 3.8.

As some of the other people said, it's still there just harder to get to. I would suggest that you just learn python3. It's not that much different from python 2, you'll just have to get used to the extra parenthesis along with a few other things.
I actually learned python 2 first, and then switched to python three, things were a little bit difficult at first, but it doesn't take long to get used to the syntax differences in python3.

Python 2.7 has been removed, but you could ask them to add it back by using the feedback page.

Seems to be gone from the new repl screen, but still possible via url.
