virtual machines
MrSnippy

I Was just wondering if it's posable to run virtual machines though a repl. I know that you can run chromium but I don't know if it's even posable to run a VM.

I apologies if this is a simple/dumb question I am still learning the basics of coding and replit can be combined.

Fun fact, your Repl runs on a VM!

But if you're talking about running your own OS on a Repl, you might run into some problems. First and foremost, most OS installations exceed the storage limit, so the list of runnable OS's is restricted to smaller ones. Secondly, you'll have to choose a VM platform that can be ran in the Repl environment. Some people have gotten QEMU working, though that might be hard to set up.
