Is there documentation on the .replit file options somewhere? Specifically, is there a way to run a script automatically when a repl is opened, before pressing play?

No, that was is not what .replit files do.

they only configure what you do when you click the run button lol

@Coder100 How did we use the exact same source, yet draw entirely different conclusions?

@xxpertHacker well

technically
no script is exactly run

most of the times the onboot functions is used to cd to some place

@Coder100 Hmm..
well, who knows, maybe all that they wanted to do was cd into another directory?
