Replit has a serious issue that during certain hours it ceases to function. Compiles that take a second or two other time of the day never complete or take an hour or more to do so. We reported this to the company and even a month on they've barely responded (the last response was they've upped the ticket). The product clearly isn't able to compile substantial programs from one user, let alone from hundreds.

?makers I love using replit, but for things like Swift it would be nice to have an Interface builder because that would make this very useful to everyone trying to learn to do development on iOS but cannot get a Mac or don't want to upgrade yet

Replit.com is a good tool for learning coding. The user interface is intuitive, and I really like the auto formatting feature of color coding keywords such as methods and attributes. My favorite feature, though, is the free web hosting. Pros: Easy & fun to use. Free web hosting. Cons: Often the interface is slow to load, despite having a fast internet connection (200Mbps download speed). Uploading files is often slow as well, but that may be due to my internet service provider limiting upload speeds to 10Mbps. Overall, I recommend Replit.com, both the free and paid plans. Be aware, though, that while the paid “Hacker” plan comes with 5GB of storage, individual “Repls” have a 1GB limit— a limit that forced me to re-work my slideshow app!

We used this with my daughters (middle school and elementary) for a school project, and it was night and day difference from previous coding experiences. For a generation that has grown up on Google docs, the experience feels so obvious and natural. We got it hooked up to github very easily as well, so they could get some level of version control without having to do all the incantations that developers all blindly accept. Auto-complete, etc are top notch. And the fact that there's an immediate publishable URL makes the feedback loop feel very fast.

I'm a computer programming teacher, and repl works fantastically for myself and my classrooms. I'm able to evaluate my students' work online, offer feedback, and set up automatic code validation testing. People may also write their own programs separate from classrooms, and save them to Repl's cloud based server. Since the website is still under development, you may encounter the occasional glitch; but by notifying the repl team, they'll usually have that fixed in a matter of hours. Overall, I strongly recommend using this website, especially since the team continues to improve it and make it better.

This is possibly the most convenient IDE I have used for transporting code across multiple computers, as it is entirely cloud based. More features are being added every day, and they are almost always useful.

However, as aforementioned, the speed/memory is very low. In my experience, a simple loop can only process about 1000 times per second with 2 or 3 lines of code. In Visual Studio, on the other hand, the same code can process 10000-20000 iterations per second. If you are writing any resource intensive or massively looping programs, I would recommend against it in that instance. For any more simple programs, however, the simplicity and mobility of this website makes it my favorite IDE.

I use Repl.it almost every day and am very happy it exists and is growing. I like that their focus doesn't stray away with distractions of other possibly useful links. It's really there for you to practice, test, build, and deploy. Looking forward to the future or Repl.it.

Repl.it has lowkey been the most helpful tool in helping me to think about/communicate about/learn about coding. Being able to instantly share and work on code from any browser make this powerful.
