get started 2

Further to my previous post on getting started. I have found another useful feature within this that could be very helpful when you want to keep a project but go in a different direction, so for example to test out a new feature.  This is known generally as forking.

You can do this from your main my repl screen. If you click on the 3 dots (vertical) on the far right of the screen, you have the option to fork your project.  This will create a copy and keep all files intact.  This is also helpful if you have created support files, like I have with some of the Learning BASH posts I made over the past few days.

Hope this update is helpful.


Please feel free to discuss further via the forums or via twitter @zleap2018. You may also want to follow @replit.
