for the "login with replit" button just put this code wherever you want the button:

once you clicked the button, it will reload. to make it so that it shows the username instead of the button, you will need to check the username. Once authed, the script will set an HTTP header (X-Replit-User-Name or some other header for nodejs maybe). If the header is blank, that means the user has not authenticated. if else, the user has.
