JavaScript write to file

i've been trying to get repl.it to run code that writes to a textfile, i got it to work once. but then i had to refresh and now it no longer wants to accept the same code. i have to write to file as the console doesnt want to display the entire output if the input gets too big

i've now found a workaround for my issue, but i'd still like to look for other solutions to JS / node.js write to file

my issue was: After first run the package pulled with var writeFile = require('write'); "write" wouldnt work properly ie. not writing to file citing "undefined"

solution:
delete package-lock
delete textfile made
reload
rerun code
"fresh package" downloaded
textfile with expected output present

any easier way to write to file in repl.it?

code for reference

@mat1
is there a way to do this without deleating previous text?
