.replit files' `onboot` no longer works?
xxpertHacker (860)

I was using the following bash to update C++ Repls:

if ! command -v clang-10 &> /dev/null
then
	install-pkg clang-10;
fi;

For some reason, it no-longer works as intended; not sure why.

I reverted to just using onboot in a .replit file, unconditionally installing clang-10:

onboot="""
install-pkg clang-10;
"""

and now it seems like onboot doesn't work either, but the code inside does.

Shouldn't it be onBoot? And it never seems to work properly either way.

@19wintersp It was onboot, and it stopped working today or yesterday.

@xxpertHacker Not sure about that, and I think it's just quite on-and-off. I think the best thing would be to submit a bug report and just let them see if they've got any internal issues.

@19wintersp Any guesss as to why the Bash fails though? It used to work.

And yes, I ripped it right off of SO.
