@AlexanderSmith8 What do you need help with?

If you could ask the Repl.it team anything, what would you ask?
posted to Ask by katyadee

@theangryepicbanana Its our most popular language, and people commonly choose it for learning programming, which is good growth for us.

Question regarding the Hacker plan
posted to Ask by SPQR

@heyitsmarcus private repls will remain private, and @SPQR file sizes will still be fine. 🙃

What is polygott?
posted to Ask by Vandesm14

Old Repl.it Languages:

Python has a python image
Node has a node image
C has a C image

Polygott Languages (eventually):

Python uses polygott image
Node uses polygott image
C uses polygott image

Node has access to python and C binaries, etc etc

So… who exactly won the repl.it Game Jam?

@MeowC all the weewoos!

Can you make the notifications page work?
posted to Ask by PYer

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. :)

PHP website backend support?
posted to Ask by olafh10

We made some updates to PHP (well, we made two new "languages"):

https://repl.it/languages/php_cli - New and improved PHP language for command line interface shenanigans. Supports multiple files.
https://repl.it/languages/php7 - PHP Web servers! Just like other hosted repls, this allows you to write websites using PHP.

Enjoy!

Why is this site saving everything?
posted to Ask by DavidMcConnachi

@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. :)

If you could ask the Repl.it team anything, what would you ask?

@lsambrook Most of us are at Repl.it HQ in SF, although some of us are also remote. Sometimes even people in SF work from home when it's necessary. Speaking personally, I do it for fun and to get paid ;)
