pip install repl-cli
Welcome to Replit CLI! With the Replit CLI Application, you can work with your repls locally, including clone, pull, and push, the core features of the CLI. You can code on your repls locally, then push your changes to the server, allowing you to use any IDE you want while also being able to use Replit. The full list of features includes-
PS C:\> replit Usage: replit [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]... Options: --install-completion [bash|zsh|fish|powershell|pwsh] Install completion for the specified shell. --show-completion [bash|zsh|fish|powershell|pwsh] Show completion for the specified shell, to copy it or customize the installation. --help Show this message and exit.

- Make sure you have Python 3.6 or higher installed. To do so, type
pythoninside of a Command Prompt/Terminal instance. If you have Python installed, a Python shell will come up with the version number. (type
quit()inside of the python shell to quit it) If you do not have Python 3.6+ or do not have Python at all, you can install it by downloading the installer for your platform located here
- Once you have python, run the following command-
pip install repl-cli, preferably with Administrator access (This includes Administrator accounts on macOS, and
Run as Administratoron Windows) to make sure that your PC recognizes Replit CLI properly.
- !! FOR Linux/macOS USERS !!
- After installing while trying to run, you may get an error from Protobuf. To fix this, run the following commands-
pip install python3-protobuf pip uninstall python3-protobuf pip uninstall protobuf pip install --upgrade protobuf
- Once installed, type
replitinto a shell to get started!

Building From Source
To build from source, run the following commands-
git clone https://github.com/CoolCoderSJ/Replit-CLI.git cd .\repl-cli\repl_cli python main.py
@CoolCoderSJ Yeah but who does those things using JS, when they have a choice?
Mobile dev: People would use Flutter or Xamarin if they wanted to write an app from scratch, without porting from an existing web app.
CLIs: The only reason people use JS for CLIs is because they want to integrate with the Node ecosystem, which is only used in web and mobile development for the most part.
Scripting: People would use Lua if they wanted performance and Python if they wanted ease of use.
- Dumb design decisions from the 90s that can't be changed due to forced backwards compatibility, such as
"1" == 1and
true + true == 2
- Inconsistent runtime (Mozilla Spidermonkey and Google v8)
- Prototypal inheritance is scuffed
- Hoisting is scuffed
- Bad class support
- No type checking support at all (Python has a decent amount of type safety)
Python is better for this type of application in my opinion because:
- More low-level stuff than Node can provide
- Large ecosystem
- Good package system (npm is not cool)
- Google loves it
- It does what it says on the tin and does it properly
Just my opinion :D
@Whippingdot basically, to get started you do
PS C:\> replit clone repl_slug_here
PS C:\> replit clone CoolCoderSJ/Replit-CLI
Now cd into the dir
PS C:\> cd replit-cli
Now code. When you want to copy changes from local to repl, do
PS C:\replit-cli> replit push
When you want to bring changes to your local files, do
PS C:\replit-cli> replit pull
