restart on error
ragnork (2)

My repl is a discord bot the fetches from an api, and i would prefer not to have to restart it every time someone makes a spelling mistake, so is there a way to have my repl restart on an error

maybe what you want to do is go into your .replit file and change run="npm start" to
run="while true do npm start done", which will just automatically run your program again every time it shuts down over and over forever...?

i tried changing run to "while true; do npm start; sleep 2; done" and it seems to be working @Highwayman

What exactly do you mean by restart on error? do you mean like if your entire program crashes, you want the repl to automatically restart?
