port must keep changing?
So I'm new here and am shocked at how awesome it all seems, but.. I'm having a problem.
I have a "hello world" Flask app here: https://repl.it/@gTravis/flask1#main.py
And it works! Sometimes :/
Notice the port is set to 5676 (currently). For a while I left it as the sample 8080 but it never worked. On a hunch, I changed it to some other number and it worked. Then it stopped working. Right now it is working on 5676.
My guess is that since it is public and I have a free account, other users are jumping on the port? Which I guess is fine, but of course it leads me to ask:
If I pay for a non-free plan, can my ports become sticky to me?
i think repls automatically shutdown after sometime when they are inactive (only for free accounts). So i guess you could use something like uptimerobot.com to keep pinging so it never shuts down.
