New Feature: Folders for your Repls
timmy_i_chen (934)

If you look at our top requested features, repl management is both the 3rd and 4th most requested feature. We understand that many people have multiple uses for Repl.it, and that they want to organize their repls to more easily find the ones they want.

To that end, we are happy to announce that you can now organize repls into folders on your repls dashboard. You can create as many folders as you like, and you can create folders within folders. Moving repls is a breeze - you can drag and drop repls into folders. If you want to move a repl or folder deep into nested folders and you don't want to drag it around too many times, you can do so by clicking on the 3-dots-menu and selecting "Move".

Selecting multiple repls is also a breeze. Hold shift to select a range of repls and folders, or hold ctrl/cmd to select specific repls and folders. Multiple items can be dragged and dropped into folders.

This is just the first step in a few steps we're taking to improve the Repl.it experience. Soon, you will have a special folder called "Unnamed" where unnamed repls will automatically go. If you wanted to get a head start on this feature, you can do so simply by creating a new folder called Unnamed in your home directory on your dashboard. Newly created repls will then go into this folder. We have more planned and in the works.

We're excited to see how users will use this feature, and we welcome any suggestions and feedback you have on our feedback boards. You can also leave a comment on this post.

Hi! I use folders a lot but have noticed that the red button for repl creation is gone. It used to be conveniently at the bottom left. Now I can only use the "new repl" button at the top, and it doesn't let me create the repls in the folder I'm in. Can you please add a way for us to directly add repls in the folder, rather than us having to click and drag every time?

@wolfs Yes - we're working on a fix for this now. Sorry for the trouble!

@wolfs Creating a new repl while in a folder should now work! Sorry for the trouble.
