linux is bad because you can customize it


Windows 10 has bloat

well yes, but macs also have a lot of bloat, and macs are priced ridiculously high.

Every component in every Mac is optimised for performance and to ensure that it requires less power.

ok this is just wrong. Apple has been sued for literally putting in code designed to slow down older devices.

For web development, Macs tend to be an excellent choice.

this is a horribly misguided statement. Apple's browser, safari, prefixes a lot of global / window variables, eg window.AudioCTX -> window.webkitAudioCTX. The majority of the world doesn't use macs, so you're then going to be doing extra work to support other platforms because apple likes to be different.

I hope that you would in future not talk bad about companies cos they can file a lawsuit against you!

you realize that companies can't sue you for talking bad about them, right?

Not that there's not enough software, that not everyone understands Linux, not even because Microsoft is an inescapable monopoly. ..

what? What does microsoft have to do with windows. Also, are you saying variety is bad? Last I checked, that was a good thing so this statement doesn't make sense.


What's it with the internet where if someone has a different opinion, they're wrong? Why are you taking it as a personal insult when someone doesn't like the same operating system which you use?

How long do replit projects stay up?
posted to Ask by phylo

Repl accounts are permanent. What you might be confused with is how long servers stay up. Servers stay up for 30 minutes after the website is visited. The website, though will always be up.

Instead of pasting the code here, link the repl to the post. Dong so not only makes it readable, but it also lets us see firsthand and easily fork+edit it, so that we can better help you.

Database-Like File
posted to Ask by KiKUP

@KiKUP ok. If u want it hidden to other users:
1) make a file named .env
2)add import ast to the beginning of your code
3) Read the file:

with open('.env', 'r') as f:
    <item name> = ast.literal_eval(f.read())

4)Write data into file:

with open('.env', 'w') as f:
    f.write(str(<item name>))

here's an example of something I did with this: https://repl.it/@AllAwesome497/LOL-Bot

WHy is not working?
posted to Ask by AlexIsRapling

Your problem is at line 11, where you forgot to indent if input() == "3":, to fix this, simply put 2 spaces at the beginning of the line.

Sound? (Python 3)
posted to Ask by Vorden999

If it is a terminal game, then no, sound is currently not supported. If it is on a site though, then yes, you can.

Like @PDanielY said, @Kognise is already making an app for repl.it. It's in react JS, and you could ask him if u can help, if you want to help him with that.

Learning about using time.sleep() to make your program wait
posted to Tutorials by 17prabkann

Time.sleep is good, but it is bad to use in any web application, since it freezes the entire application instead of a single task. asyncio.sleep pauses a single task only, making it useful (on certain occasions) in web applications.

random integer
posted to Ask by AnnaBuell

This is how you get a random number:

import random  # At the beginning of the file
random_number = random.randint(<lowest number>, <highest number>)  # Choose a number between arg 1 and arg 2, includes the top and bottom numbers

but its fine

keeps saying functions arent defined
posted to Ask by james21215

Btw, if u provide the link to the repl, if we click on it it will open a little window to it, which makes it more readable, and allows us to see the exact error,
and edit a forked version of it.

posted to Ask by Pythonier

if you are on the repl.it discord server [email protected] someone on replit team with a link to your template repl, if not, probably email [email protected]. Edit: Timchen says that he wil be making a template soon, and it will be announced at talk/announcements

Accidentally deleted an IMPORTANT repl
posted to Ask by kckusal

Contact [email protected](probably would be best if u used your email u are singed in as, or if you have signed up with social Meha , use the email u used for that) say your username, and the name of the repl you want restored, and (ofc) ask for it to be restored.

Cycle Privileges [BAD IDEA]
posted to Ask by Zavexeon

bc just because u have a lot of cycles, doesn't mean u are responsible. some people get like 40 or something just for saying something people agree w/ or making a game. Making a game doesn't make u responsible. Although a badge of some sort or something such as a admin's star (not a star ofc but something similar) would not be bad
