Repl.it Node API

Hey Repl.it!

I made a Node module that lets you create, write files to, and run Repl.it projects! If you want to install it, it's called repl.it-api.

If you want to quickly try it out there's a usage example hosted on Repl.it close to the end of this post.

Why?

I wanted to distribute a NPM library that uses fairly modern coding practices that also has a use.

One possible use is a command line program for deploying projects to Repl.it. Earlier I made one but as soon as Repl.it updated their API it broke and was a pain to maintain. With this dedicated, isolated library, something like that would be much easier to both develop and maintain.

The other thing which I am more excited about, is a "Deploy to Repl.it" button. Have you ever seen those buttons on GitHub repos that say "Deploy to [Now/Heroku/Netlify]"? They're super awesome because you can have your own copy of an app deployed in seconds. I want to make one for Repl.it. You click the button and it transports you to a new Repl.it project with all the code ready to go and running.

More Info

If you're interested, here are some links where you can find documentation on how to use and install it:

If you have any comments, questions, or feedback of any sort I'd love to hear it in the comments! Thanks for reading this far :D
