Wine on repl

I'm on a restricted computer right now, so I'm unable to run windows applications normally. Is it possible to assemble a wine source to be able to run GUI-Based apps?

Hey there,
I know this is late but I have found out how to do it. Basically just make a Nix REPL with the Wine package in there. You can change the command in the .replit file.

Here's an example:

if you have the resources, go for it!

But I don't think you have the resources as window applications can get quite big, so probably not :(

@Coder100 but Wine isn’t a language on Repl though. How would he run the files?

Sorry man, I don’t believe you can use Wine on Repl. Although you could suggest the language to the developers!

Hope this helps, and if it does mark this as your answer!

@RayhanADev You can do it, if you create a Nix REPL with the Wine package.
