It's been an awesome year for our community! I had some fun looking at the data and reflecting on our community, and I'd like to share some of the stuff I found interesting.
In Feb 2018 we released the first version of our hosting platform. At first it worked only for static html projects. In March of 2018 we released our beta version of dynamic web server hosting. Since then you, our lovely replers, went to work making websites and apps. In 2019 we saw some of our first viral apps and big hits.

As a thank you to @mat1 for being an awesome creator we're going to build his favorite feature into Repl.it! Whatever he requests from us (within reason) we have to build.
