Install Unity in repl.it

Hello!

Today I'm gonna teach you how to install the Unity hub on repl.it!
First: Create a repl and open the shell (using CTRL + SHIFT + S for Windows, or COMMAND + SHIFT + S for Mac), and type in this:

wget https://public-cdn.cloud.unity3d.com/hub/prod/UnityHub.AppImage # A file called UnityHub.AppImage will appear chmod +x ./UnityHub.AppImage # Now you can execute the file ./UnityHub.AppImage --appimage-extract # A folder called squashfs-root will appear

Now, when you are ready to start Unity, run this:

./squashfs-root/unityhub --no-sandbox

Now, you can use the Unity hub in repl.it!

I ran all the commands in a bash shell, but got an error: /home/runner/unity/squashfs-root/unityhub-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgobject-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

What language do we make this project in. I know unity uses c# but every time i enter these commands, nothing really happens besides it installing some files

@angrydoge Probably repl.it, It's just a normal free plan copy of the unity hub, my code only unpacks it and runs it.
Unless you're running it on you're own Windows/MacOS computer, this only works on linux.
