RESTORING REPLS FROM THE TRASH

Have you ever deleted a repl but then regretted it? Did you ever accidentally delete a repl? Don't ping the admins anymore! We have a solution! I deleted this repl attached a few minutes ago and now it's back!

DISCLAIMER: THIS ONLY WORKS FOR REPLS DELETED IN THE PAST 30 DAYS

1. GO TO REPL.IT CLI

So a while back repl.it made a blog post. Well, they made it to life. Go to /~/cli.

2. TRASH > VIEW (OPTIONAL)

In case you forgot what the repl name was, type in:

trash view

and press enter.
It will take some time to go to hell and find these repls.

3. TRASH > RESTORE --TITLE

Now it's time to resurrect the dead! Type in

trash restore --title

Now, you can either press enter now and use the repl.it UI to type in the repl name, OR you can be savvy and do

trash restore --title '[REPL NAME]'

and replace [REPL NAME] with the desired repl name.

Send repls

Wow, I didn't know about the yaml highlighting. Nice job on that.
