Monthly Repls - October 2020

Hey there replers, we made it through yet another one more month and that means - it is time again for the MONTHLY REPLS! 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 really worth checking out.

So, here we go!


We had a lot of games being shared on the share board this month so it was rather difficult to choose which one of them to keep and which one to not. The ones included in the list below are the ones that felt like they had something new in them and were not remakes of games that already existed (Even though the remakes were pretty cool.)

First up is a fun numerical puzzle Doodle Countdown by @CatR3kd. Try to defuse the bomb before the timer runs out with all your clues on the screen!

Followed by @JDOG787's HexAGuess which is a true challenge to a frontend developer's knowledge of colors.

And finally @fuzzyastrocat's shadows - a multiplayer maze game where you can't see the goal! Have fun exploring the different routes and racing with your friends to see who gets to the goal first when your field of vision is limited.

Along with the amazing games, there were also some "puzzle solvers" and simulations such as @fuzzyastrocat's CellSim which extends Conway's Game of Life with a bit of possible configurations along with @DmitriiPavlov's Sudoku solver and @DynamicSquid's "Snake AI".

Sometimes all the various elements in chemistry can be confusing, learn more about them by interacting with this Atom Builder developed by @tarnx and @AlexanderTarn along with their friends.

We also had some musical stuff this month such as @Vandesm14's TTS service which they created using their own voice.

Editor notes : As good as the above project might be on its own, check out the comments for some inputs that generate musical beats.

@Jeydin21 also developed a rather beautiful Music player with neumorphic design (and really great use of shadows).

Another great piece of art is @JONATHANLAUX's Image to ASCII art website. Even though it can only convert square images to ASCII art, it is really great and efficient at what it does.

@RayhanADev came up with an idea where they and their brother collaborated to make a collaborative JavaScript CLI and they also developed this repl.it user search alongside @CSharpIsGud and @realTronsi.

@CSharpIsGud also wrote a tutorial on How to use threading in C++ along with explaining when and why should you use it so you can use it when needed and make all your programs perform even more efficiently.

All of us have at least once in our lives wanted to develop a game. Learn more on the topic with @TurtleAndrew's tutorial on 3D projection.

Moving onto templates. For no particular reason, ever wanted to make your website look like a notepad window in Windows XP? Check out another one of @RayhanADev's work - Notepad website template.

Can't come up with a good 404 page? Check out the Sliced and Ghost 404 landing pages designed and developed by @blogspot.


And as I always say 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 finally now, that's all for this month. See ya all next month with another set of monthly highlights.

whens the next jam thingy
@PattanAhmed

PattanAhmed (1260)

@objectme12 We don't know when is the Next Jam opening.
Usually, jams will have a difference of 4-5 months.
So, since this jam just finished a while ago, Wait patiently until the next one! like we all do.

Stay tuned to the newsletter, Repl.it Discord, blogs, etc.

DynamicSquid (4398)

@LingWu1 Please don't ping me randomly :)

Jeydin21 (57)

@LingWu1 Thanks! But you're uh, kinda like, a week late...
Also, don't mention a ton of people you're siccing them on yourself lmAO

LingWu1 (33)

@DynamicSquid , I have no idea whats ping :)
LOL

LingWu1 (33)

I know,I'm to busy with school work and the MATH my mom is making me do,so I can't check repl every day, @Jeydin21
LOL

DynamicSquid (4398)

@LingWu1 pinging people is putting an @ symbol in front of their username so they get notified but it gets annoying if you do it randomly since it clouds up important notifications

LingWu1 (33)

lol ok DynamicSquid

RayhanADev (1002)

@LingWu1 lol thanks, but like they said a week late m8 :)

blogspot (11)

@LingWu1 thanks sir..😅😅🙏

LingWu1 (33)

LOL @blogspot
I'm ain't a boy but np

CatR3kd (365)

Thanks but please no ping @LingWu1

DynamicSquid (4398)

Oh Drone, I have a question, why don't you, or any other mod, upvote posts?

TheDrone7 (1446)

@DynamicSquid I do upvote at times. Just my requirement for receiving an upvote is pretty high. Can't speak for the rest of the mods tho.

RohilPatel (1428)

I think I've gotten one of urs. I've gotten amasad, and vandesm @TheDrone7

DynamicSquid (4398)

@RohilPatel Can I list the upvotes I've gotten from mods too?

RohilPatel (1428)

sure why not.... or is it none lol @DynamicSquid

DynamicSquid (4398)

@RohilPatel lettuce see here... amasad, hayaodeh, codelong, timmyichen, zave, cactus

TsunamiOrSumth (352)

(furiously typing in google trying to learn node.js)

LingWu1 (33)

@tsunami21 , I'm not exactly into Node.js, but I think you can find turituals of people making things on Node.js.Thats how I learned python,getting helf from turitals and friends

TsunamiOrSumth (352)

@LingWu1 'turitals'
it was a joke, im not into it either but ty for the advice

Leroy01010 (388)

I only came to repl.it to see ur pfp

[deleted]

@TheDrone7 hi, i am new to repl, would you care to tell me about it?

CSharpIsGud (646)

Expect to see me in next month too :)

RayhanADev (1002)

@CSharpIsGud lmao whatca up to @CSharpIsGud? Secret Project owo

CSharpIsGud (646)

@RayhanADev Not so secret, if anyone saw my last two posts.

RayhanADev (1002)

@CSharpIsGud Dude awesome! Good luck m8!

CSharpIsGud (646)

@realTronsi I don't see anyone else making a web browser. An actual real one that doesn't just do import selenium or html iframe that links to google. So I'd say its a safe bet.

realTronsi (782)

@CSharpIsGud you still have a lot more to go though, I'm assuming you're talking about the html and css parser you have so far. Styling is a challenge on its own, and input boxes, canvas, etc will be a pain

CSharpIsGud (646)

@realTronsi the js interpreter will have a good chance of winning on its own if I don't get rendering going by then

CSharpIsGud (646)

@LoganSpong You mean the easy to make chatroom that polls a webserver every second?

Yes.

LoganSpong (46)

@CSharpIsGud yeah sorry i was on vacation im ready whenever

dabombdgdzjr (120)

These graphics are legendary

AlexanderTarn (270)

Was that our project?
It was that good?

Jeydin21 (57)

CatR3kd (365)

RayhanADev (1002)

CatR3kd (365)

CatR3kd (365)

CatR3kd (365)

CatR3kd (365)

CatR3kd (365)
