I'm interested in the statistics of people who sort by hot vs sort by new
that could have something to do with it

Why do you use repl?
posted to Ask by AllAwesome497

A place that hosts my code online is very handy and have been able to complete projects from multiple locations that I wouldn't have been able to otherwise. I mainly use it to quench my thirst for dumb programming ideas that I come up with.

@xolyon you'd be surprised how many different ways there are to type in the command for help, being explicit is useful

Professor: Welcome back to CS361, 
           today we're going to learn about forking and killing children 
           and how to have them reaped by their parents.

What do YOU think of repl.it's new homepage?

Just tossing ideas out there.

What's your favorite Repl.it game??
posted to Ask by CollinKunsman

Repl should have sections containing people's creations.
Like a section for games, apps, and stuff. It seems a lot of people's work is stuffed in the bottom of repl talk.

Repl.it Desktop 😯
posted to Ask by PDanielY

I also don't understand the point of a desktop app when you can just use this website on your desktop. I would see why someone would attempt a mobile app for repl but the desktop version already exists (that is, this website).

I wouldn't feel too bad.
The line clear algorithm works and I'd say that's the hardest thing about programming tetris. It also looks way better than mine.

Collision detection not working very good.
posted to Ask by PowerCoder

I derived this function:

function checkCollision(a, b)
    return (a.x < b.x + b.width  &&
            a.x + a.width > b.x  &&
            a.y < b.y + b.height &&
            a.y + a.height > b.y);

From this page:


var rectA = {x: 10, y: 10, width: 10, height: 10};
var rectB = {x: 10, y: 15, width: 10, height: 10};

if (checkCollision(rectA, rectB))
    console.log('Collision detected');

What's the difference?
posted to Ask by JordanDixon1

JavaScript is what's most commonly used to provide functionality to web pages (unless you're a diehard CSS expert).
Java CAN be used for websites (see .jsp)

Being programming languages they naturally have a lot in common (classes, variables, functions, etc...) but are typically used for completely different things.

Whoever named JavaScript has some serious explaining to do.

C++ Program Assignment HELP
posted to Ask by GraceVenis

what a coincidence, repl.it had a community challenge with exactly that

What I did was break up the digits into a list of triplets
123456789 -> [[1,2,3],[4,5,6],[7,8,9]]
Each group [1,2,3] has its own unit quantifier (thousand, million, billion...) that I put into a list:

vector<string> unit_quantifier = {
    ""        , // first triplet is blank because 'hundred' is a special case
    "million" ,
    "billion" ,

Since [1,2,3] is the third triplet in this example, that matches the unit_quantifier's third item: "million"

My general algorithm was this:

    1. Break the big number up into groups of 3
        a. numbers missing get replaced with 0: `1002`->`[0,0,1],[0,0,2]`
    2. Print the biggest triplet first, down to the smaller ones
        a. print the digits first
        b. followed by its unit quantifier
    3. Repeat 2 until you have printed the entire number

Is this happening in a particular repl?
