@SPQR Love this idea. :)

Why is this site saving everything?

@DavidMcConnachi So repls will be in your dashboard if you create one, or edit an existing one.

If you become an explorer, you can enable Folders for your dashboard. Extra hidden pro-tip - you can create a folder called 'Unnamed' in your home directory and any new repls will go in there instead of cluttering up your main view. :)

Can you make the notifications page work?

It's notifications for classroom activity, e.g. when a new assignment is posted (student) or when a student submits an assignment (teacher). We were thinking of expanding it to Repl Talk if it took off though. :)

I love these types of challenges! Here's one I made a while ago - the code isn't that long, but the runtime is ;)

@LiamChurchill Yup that's pretty much it. If someone took all three weeks to make a super awesome game that didn't win the most votes, it should be recognized too. :)

What coding language do you like best?

Javascript gets my vote - such a joy to write in. It might also be because I stopped writing in other languages after coming to Repl.it. ;)

@MarcoSanto Added timezones. :)

The repl should aid in the tutorial to explain a concept or to add interactivity, ideally, but we're open to creative uses. The tutorial can be for anything!

[C++] How do I clear the console without using /n or endl?
posted to Ask by KarlisOslejs

This will be implemented soon! The new terminal we're working on will support full terminal functionality including clearing screens via ANSI escape sequences (and built in libraries should also work).

It's usable right now via Explorer mode on Python3 repls, but it will come to all languages too :)
