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.
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!
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
This is actually awesome! Using a blank PDF as a callback and a bookmarklet for the key is super smart. Keep going :)
Awesome! Have you implemented caching yet?
Work on Repl.it mobile, build my Discord programming community. Hopefully learn a lot more
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!
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 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!
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.
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!
This is truly amazing! I'm suprised more people haven't seen it. And it has a nice design as well
@HarperframeInc To your first concern - Xeborch is a public test account for people who don't feel comfortable logging in with their own account, and to your second - we need the Repl.it team to make changes to their backend before OAuth login works.
