    Pros: 

    Clean, intuitive, and wildly useful

    Cons: 

    none

    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.

    Pros: 

    Ease of use, straightforward, useful, fun to explore

    Cons: 

    none

    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.

    Pros: 

    Incredibly easy to work from multiple locations

    One IDE for many common and obscure languages

    Still in development, so only improving.

    Cons: 

    Processing speed/memory low.

    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.

    Pros: 

    Free online cloud-based IDE for many programming languages. Great for classrooms!

    Cons: 

    The occasional glitch (usually fixed within hours), as website is continually made better.

    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.

    Pros: 

    So many languages available now, store code snippets, work through bugs, I use this as much as my text editor.

    Cons: 

    lately it's been a bit sticky when I first log in and try to type the first few characters, This is a new issue.

    I literally use this site 6/7 days a week. Its a great online repl tool. Not sure what I would do with out it. Love it.
