Is there any way to omit the .env file from a GitHub commit?
I don't believe so. The best way to do not upload a file would be to not connect your project to a repo and just manually upload the files yourself the hard way. (Basically don't connect the repl project to github and nothing happens)
@slickassassin03 well honestly, there are a couple options:
1) there is a discord (should be on the bottom left corner of the screen) for repl
2) if you find a user with a moderator tag, mention them with @[repl name], which will notify them (probably shouldn't, but if it is important...)
3) ask a question like this one. If it gathers enough votes, repl will most likely see it. Unfortunately, it's likely not a whole lot of people will upvote (since they are middle schoolers interested in games and not git hub)
If I missed something here, I'm pretty sure the longer you stay in the community, the sooner you'll find it.
