Tyler, welcome! I'm excited to see what awesome things you're gonna make :)
So far file icons are a welcome change and already make Repl.it feel more professional. You mentioned interface consistency, improvement in that area would be amazing

Awesome! Have you implemented caching yet?

What is the language you recommend the most? Why do you recommend it??
posted to Ask by enigma_dev

My recommended language is JavaScript. Why?

Cross-platform
JavaScript can run in many places, anywhere from inside web pages in your browser to scripts running in Node.js to completely standalone programs to even mobile apps! This results in a lot of flexibility and also means that you can write full-stack applications with only JavaScript.

Very popular
JavaScript is very popular and has a giant community. From subreddits to Discord servers with tens of thousands of members it's very easy to get help. In fact, according to the 2019 StackOverflow Developer Survey, 67.8% of all respondents and 69.7% of professional developers use JavaScript.

Large ecosystem
NPM, an extremely popular JavaScript and Node.js package manager, has over 800,000 packages and that number is increasing by over 400 per day according to Modulecounts. This is over 4.5 times that of PyPI, Python's package index. JavaScript also has amazing editor support: the open-source code editor Visual Studio Code has rich autocompletion and even inline documentation for JavaScript and TypeScript which improves the developer experience a lot.

New features
New features are being added to JavaScript all the time, adding even more flexibility and improving readability and ease of development. With tools like Babel you can write code with new syntax before it's even supported in browsers, and everything is always backwards-compatible. I would go as far as to say that many of these make code more readable and understandable than even Python.

As a second choice, I'd recommend Go. It's an extremely performant compiled programming language originally built by Google. It's designed to be simple, reliable, and readable.

There are a lot more things I could add, but I have to go practice the cello now. If anyone has any suggestions, leave a comment and I might make an edit. If you found this answer useful I'd appreciate any upvotes I can get.

I noticed this too! Static hosting seems to be having intermittent problems, I've messaged the team on Slack. Repl.it does have a status page, just click here.

How Did YOU Find Repl.it

I was looking for online web development platforms similar to CodeSandbox because it was glitching out on me a bunch. Repl.it far exceeded my expectations!

How do you plan your code?
posted to Ask by xolyon

For complex projects I usually start with a "spec" document that outlines all the parts and exactly what they do. Then I jump into visual design.

For my students: Is replit running very slow the last 3 days?
posted to Ask by sjang

Repl.it has been having intermittent issues, slowdowns, and 404 errors. From their Twitter it seems like their databases were being stressed, but everything should be fixed now!

Why do you use repl?
posted to Ask by AllAwesome497

I use Repl.it because I can spin up a full dev environment for a program in the click of a button that expands to what I need it for.

Just testing a quick function? No problem. Running a production website? No problem. Writing a GUI app? No problem!

ultimate advnnced interprer
posted to Share by mat1

This is truly amazing. I've read books about parsing and interpreters and even recently wrote a few of my own. But this surpasses anything I have ever built by an order of magnitude.

My only complaint is that the syntax is too Python-like, but that bug can easily fixed to make it more like JavaScript.

Overrall, this is an amazing feat of programming and I may very well use this for my next web project. Thanks for sharing with the community!

@GavHern Thanks! What I meant is that the code works and has been tested on iOS, but I don't yet have a paid Apple developer account to build an IPA file or distribute it on the App Store.
