Monthly Repls - September 2020
TheDrone7 (1628)

Hey there replers, we made it through one more month again so it is time again for the MONTHLY REPLS (I know these are a bit too late so sorry about that but let's do it anyways). 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!

Before anything however, we recently had a programming language jam and there were a few submissions that we did not forward to the judges due to various reasons. Now this absolutely does not mean these aren't great languages and not worth checking out. So we're featuring them here!

A simple to use and learn language on top of Python - we have SIMP by @developer1001.

Sometimes the programming terms such as logical operators can be confusing (for beginners at least) - here's ABCode by @JohnMontgomery1 to help them code without the trouble.

@maddie5225 made a nice attempt to renew BASIC in the form of Bridgit.

Empirical is a powerful language for time-series analysis developed by @chrisaycock and the rest of the Empirical team.

@pimpale developed a lisp-flavored stack based variant of Forth using C called lasagna!

Like something about a lang but dislike something else about it? @Charrey developed ParseLang for you! Redefine how the language is supposed to look and work while writing a program in it!

Since you can have array of anything, why not have an array of instructions as well? Eelios developed by @VimHax features exactly this. Give it a try!

By combining the good parts from JS and Lua, @egordorichev presents Lit!

That's it for the languages. Next up, the repls we are featuring from the month of September!

Always stressed? Check out kalm by @DeepiRdy and @MeghanaG1 to help you calm down.

Play @Coder100 's Switcheroo or try out @fuzzyastrocat 's game Swap which are both pretty fun and challenging puzzle games. @rjlevy also recreated the good old Solitaire (UK one, not the card game).

@fuzzyastrocat also made many other amazing posts, which include their esoteric language - λ (Lambda) and another really enjoyable game - Shot in the dark.

@ThatCoolCoder created a platform to check out Conway's Game of Life. Learn more about it what it is here.

Meanwhile @CSharpIsGud developed an entire operating system (yes an actual OS with an actual bootloader and kernel) using Volant - a language that was developed during the repl.it PL Jam. Be sure to check out VolantOS which they developed within 1 week of the completion of the first actual release of the language itself!

@JDOG787 also developed a really cool website similar to Patatap. On pressing each of the alphabet keys, a certain sound is made along with an animation on the website.

Everyone loves Minecraft slimes (just kidding). Spread their influence with this fun game by @CursorsDev called Clean Up!

@JoshuaSkootsky made this pretty interesting Aliens name generator which displays how reactivity only needs Vanilla JS does not require any JS frameworks!

And last but not the least - @3941driB developed an image editor that works entirely using textual commands!

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.
