I dabble in a few languages, but I am most proficient in Python 3. I endeavour to create the most complex, but efficiently written programs.

Hey dude. I'm not here to take a dump on your work, I can tell you spent a while making this, and it seems functional - I just wanted to give you some advice. A lot of this code could have been done way more efficiently, and it's very hard on the eyes. I have rewritten two of the excessively inefficient and hard to look at parts for you (Those if's with all the or's), you can take inspiration from it if you would like.

I hope this helps you out man.

PS - The parts I have rewritten can be distinguished by the large comments around the scripts. I completely fine with you flat out copying these scripts, I only ask you chuck some sort of comment somewhere saying I helped out. Thanks man.

This is a great tutorial, covering most of the language.
LOLCODE can be hard to understand, I think you explained it quite well. You have my upvote!

Cyclomatic Complexity too high?
posted to Ask by OwenBradstreet

@amasad I don't have an example that wouldn't fill a page haha, but 15 or more nested if's yes (not all under one if statement, nested within eachother). Why is 15 too high though? As in, what disadvantage or issues does it cause?

👋✨Introduce yourself 🎉😀

I'm Owen, and although I'm not new to repl.it I'm very new to the forum part - and I've been very active recently, I love it! I program in Python 3, and (not to blow my own trumpet) I think I'm pretty good. I use repl.it so I can code on my chromebook, and now for this awesome community!
I really hope to become well-known and liked here!

@GabrieleRomagno When you create the new file, are you adding the extension (.py) to the end? If not, it will just be a blank file format.

PS: If this is helpful can you upvote? Thanks!

Maybe add the link to the program so we can try it out, instead of just a screenshot?


CREATE Your Future: A Choose Your Own Path Game!

I didn't enjoy this... I chose to make my own character and then be a unicorn, and it just said 'yay'. The ascii art was cool but it wasn't much of a future? The other's weren't much more interesting.

I'm not here to take s*** on your work man, just thought I'd give some honest feedback - maybe add some more story?

Is it possible to use python's socket library in repl.it?

@21natzil How would you go about connecting to the server from another repl?

Random Numbers with Arbitrary Probability Distribution (Python 3)
posted to Ask by OwenBradstreet

So, thanks to the brilliant mind of timchen, the solution is as simple as:

import random

accuracy = int(input("Accuracy (1-100): "))
randomNumber = random.randint(1,101)
if accuracy > randomNumber:

Awesome community here :)

I found this to happen sometimes too. An easy fix is to just close your browser and reopen it, and use CTRL+SHIFT+T to open your old pages again - seems to work. Hope this helped.

I am such a noob at this...

There are two types of loop: Definite and Indefinite.
Definite loops have a certain ending - they will definitely end at some point.
Indefinite loops can end, but don't necessarily have to.

The while loop will execute some code over and over again indefinitely while a condition is met. For example:

x = 0
while (x < 10):
    #Do some things here
    x += 1

This will execute the code 11 times, because x starts at zero and increments by one each time, and while loop will loop indefinitely until x isn't less than 10. Another example code be:

while (True):
     # Doing some cool things forever here
     if (youwantto):

This code will run forever, unless the loop is broken from the inside using break.

The For loop will take a list and execute the code for each item in that list. For example:

names = ["Owen Bradstreet", "Taya Fitzgerald", "Jerry Smith", "John Doe"]
for name in names:

This code will go through every item in the "names" list, replace the temporary variable "name" with the current name it's on and print out that name. The for loop is often used to run some code a certain amount of time like this:

for i in range(0, 9):
     # Cool code here

This will execute that code 10 times.

Hope this helped!

PS: If this did help you, can you please leave an upvote :) This took me a while to write.

@Babbel I like this idea a lot - this would allow us to create our own leaderboards and stuff!

This is the earliest original I could find. I believe this guy made it, he's had the repl for over a month. Please don't plagiarise khani it's not cool..

I don't think you make this - please at least give reference to the actual creator and say it isn't yours.
I want to clarify I don't think you made this because it says the repl was made 4 hours ago - I don't think you wrote that in 4 hours, and I've seen it before.

Let me know if I'm wrong - apologies if I am.

Pretty cool man - maybe work on that AI as an extra feature and ask at the beginning if you want to play two or one player?

This is really cool - was just thinking that instead of saying the chat it is on the left, instead say the time it was sent. This would make it easier when determining if people are still online or not.

@pyelias You can also set the flush argument to true flush=True inside the print, which forces the terminal to buffer after each one :)

Does it have to be visual, and does it have to be in node.js / web-based?

@timmy_i_chen That's a no then ;)

whats the best coding language to learn?
posted to Ask by mmcdermotttcsp

I'd recommend python. It's easy to learn and gives a basic grasp of programming, which will help you when/if you move on to different languages.
