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.

How Did YOU Find Repl.it
posted to Ask by PYer

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'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.

Plagiarism in Class Assignments
posted to Ask by JoshMassey1

@Kognise The problem with this is that solutions will tend to be the same. I wonder if copy-pasting can just be blocked, forcing students to type everything in.

I don't think that's a feature right now, but it's a really good idea! If you want you could submit a feature request. It also wouldn't be too hard to just write a script to do that.
