Where did Nathan go?
posted to Ask by BenOfWillis

Nathan here, don't worry! I'm perfectly fine, although I appreciate the concern. While I do make the newsletters, I didn't make the Run on Repl.it feature , so it wouldn't be very fair for me to send out that email under my name.

What to expect from Repl.it in 2020
posted to Ask by PaoloAmoroso

I can't say much about the website, I'll leave that to @amasad. For the community, however, the discord will be doing more code jams, we just started a new challenge on Repl Talk, and there may or may not be a(n) <redacted> just around the corner...

Repl.it Forker!
posted to Share by 21natzil

@PierceMason I'm not sure, repl.it has changed a lot sense then. Try tracking the requests send in your browser through developer tools, and try to recreate it. That's how I first did it!

A lot of things

I'll try to remember replitears for the weekly repls. 😉

Python GUI
posted to Ask by dylanharding33

Remi is a library that acts like a GUI, and has similar syntax. However, it makes a website that have the GUI on it, instead of opening a window. This works great with repl.it! I should note, despite what the repository says, it doesn't work on firefox, however it's perfectly fine with chrome.

This is a great game! However it's had it's time under the sun. I hope everyone enjoyed this project, because I know I did! Anyways, I'll be unpinning this now, but that doesn't mean you can still find it! Thanks @ericqweinstein for this amazing game!

Python or not? please any information would do.
posted to Ask by bion0

Python is a great language, but choose whatever you want! Each language has it's own advantages and disadvantages. If you like Python, go for it. But if you want to try any other languages, that's perfectly fine too.

Array doubt
posted to Ask by Lanna

What an array, or list means, greatly depends on the language. Let's say we're talking about python. Lists are, lists, simple as that. But if someone says array, they could actually mean a list, and their just calling it that because they come from another language. Or, they actually are talking about arrays, and are most likely talking about numpy.array. NumPy is a very popular module for doing complex math in python, and people that use numpy pretty much always use it's array class. I hope this helps clear up some confusion!

Play sound in a repl with Python
posted to Ask by RojerGS

@RojerGS When creating a website on repl.it, you're only restricted by your browser. When working with Python / Pygame repls, sound is not supported, sorry for the confusion.

@rediar For persistent storage. EasyDB is more designed to be a temporary storage system, for things like testing, and maybe running tests.

What are the top programming languages do you want to learn in 2020?
posted to Ask by amasad

I want to learn Go, as I'm not very familiar with staticly typed languages and I feel Go is a good place to start.

Is it possible to use python's socket library in repl.it?
posted to Ask by ETHANSIAO

Yes, and no. Yes you can create sockets, and they will behave normally. The problem with your code is that you're using gethostname. Replace that with "" which means it will bind to the computer, but be accessible externally. The reason I say no, is that whenever you open a socket and bind it to the repl, repl.it is tricked into thinking you started an HTTP server (A web server). It will then start requesting your website, which may cause issues with your code. It will also convert any request other people made to the repl into HTTP.
