Monthly Repls - June 2020
TheDrone7 (1073)

Hello again replers, its a new month and that means... YES! It's time for monthly repls! And for those who do not know what these are, these are the repl talk posts that were made in the past 1 month and are really interesting and worth checking out. This month was jam-packed with such posts.

So, without further ado, here we go!

We've been seeing a lot of amazing web-based games, @darknew's Stickiamese made using phaser.js. And in case you wanna make your own epic games such as this one, check out @EitanAlperstein's Phaser.js template!

@coder100 particularly made a lot of contributions, check out their Bot post where they made a bot that automatically replies to your comments in the post itself!

They also made a tutorial for our under-development Repl.it DB that repl.it users can use to store data in their repls.

AND, they also made this amazing python console with a twist.

@BobTheTomatoPie made this website to contain all their "generators" (which do generate some pretty funny stuff by the way).

@Roar123 made a beautiful, terminal-based Stock Market Visualizer!

@ineshbose created a text-based Blackjack game. Even though I don't know how to play this game, those of you who do might find it pretty enjoyable!

@CodeLongAndPros and @HahaYes shot a barrage of fun to read C tutorials and C++ tutorials respectively. @CodeLongAndPros also put together this really great set of guidelines on how to make good text-based UIs.

@CSharpIsGud (as their name suggests) made something using C#! That something being an incredibly easy to use JSON parsing library for C#.

@DynamicSquid, seeing as to how a lot of beginners have trouble understanding error messages, made this tutorial on how they can learn about the error message and it's fix. They also created this simple pixel art creator

We all know the Earth is round (nou to them flat-earthers). @duck132912 created this 3D model of the Earth using p5.js!

@UniqueOstrich made their own browser using PyQt5 which works in repl.it itself!

We've seen a lot of fast typing/typing speed websites, but @PYer created a really beautiful typing speed website(it really is insanely beautiful). What's more is that you can login using repl.it and compare your own typing speed with your fellow repl.it users!

@generationXcode put together a wonderful tutorial on plotting linear regression using python!

@PowerCoder put together this website where you can generate beautiful virtual trees by editing stuff LIVE!

And last but not the least is another of @CodeLongAndPros contribution. They put together this post about what media thinks of "coding" and "hacking" and how to fix it. This one actually is a must read in my personal opinion.

And that's definitely not all for this month. As usual, there's a lot of other great posts that did not make it here, be sure to put them in the comments section for others to check out. And be sure to see it anyways in case someone else has left one for you to check out.

And now, that's all for this month. See ya all next month with another set of monthly highlights. Have fun and stay safe while you hack away!

I made a tutorial on how to make modules for python.
(I made it two months ago...)

TheDrone7 (1073)

@JordanDixon1 Definitely a good tutorial, but it can be improved. Try using language codeblocks such as
# code goes here
instead of
# code here

and a little more beginner friendly language and some links to external references in the future would make it near perfect tutorial for the purpose.

JordanDixon1 (310)

@TheDrone7 Ok, I'll try working on it. Thank you.

JordanDixon1 (310)

@TheDrone7 Should be much better now.

Bookie0 (3284)

generationXcode (162)

nice. Thanks for mentioning me :)

EitanAlperstein (6)

Wow, thanks for mentioning me!

CodeLongAndPros (957)

Since I wrote like 8 articles, if you don't mind, can I have content creator?

TheDrone7 (1073)

@CodeLongAndPros content creator is a rather exclusive role, to earn it, both the quantity and the quality of your posts should be top tier. And I'm afraid you're not quite there yet.

CodeLongAndPros (957)

We all know the Earth is round (nou to them flat-earthers).

The flat-earthers have members around the globe.

DynamicSquid (2673)

@CodeLongAndPros when space tourism hits, let's have flat earthers ride for free

CodeLongAndPros (957)

@DynamicSquid Bbbuuttt perhaps it's a cylinder!

DynamicSquid (2673)

@CodeLongAndPros gasp... or maybe it's hollow??? man those Lizard people and their propaganda

CodeLongAndPros (957)


Can't you see the Curvature from an Airplane?

No. Even if the Earth was a globe this would be an impossibility. We have testimonies from several pilots saying that no curvature can be seen at Commercial Airline heights. It has been suggested that airplane windows serve to distort the view of passengers and make them believe they see curvature when indeed there is none. This was likely a ploy by early airline companies to sell more tickets.

@DynamicSquid I know right.

THIS CLOSE TO: segmentation fault (core dumped)

JadenGarcia (39)

@CodeLongAndPros I swear it's flat, and round. :)
Thus... a circle.
