The Repl.it Chrome Extension šŸŒ

Hey everyone,

One of the coolest things about repl.it is how fast and simple it is to experiment with others' code. I've been working on a chrome extension which allows you to run code all over the web on repl.it, with just one click.

The chrome extension adds prompts to NPM Packages and Github Gists - letting you try out examples as soon as you see them.

But, that's not all! The chrome extension lets you run literally everything on repl.it!

Just select some code, enter a language and boom šŸ¤Æ


Get it now on the Chrome Webstore

I'm looking forward to hearing ideas + feedback from y'all :)

So cool, I like the logo but I think it should be darker and bigger.

Looks awesome, maybe porting to Firefox next?

jajoosam (546)

@21natzil will do if there's some demand :)

@jajoosam I use Firefox, it would be pretty cool to have this on there

@jajoosam Firefox uses the same WebExtension api as chrome does, so it shouldn't be hard.

@mat1 @mkhoi @21nazil Faced a few issues when I tried - but if any of you feel like it, all of the code is open source to port šŸ˜„

Wow, this is incredible! This is undeniably helpful, and I hope every Repl.it user knows about this killer feature. Amazing work!

Make a feature, so that it automatically makes the repl in your account instead of on yours. You can input your username and password at the start

Awesome idea! I am also thinking on making an android version as well.

doesn't work for me
(i highlight some code on a random website, right-click, "try on repl.it", nothing happens)

jajoosam (546)

@HappyFakeboulde Can you record a video or something for me please?

jajoosam (546)

@HappyFakeboulde Sorry, no idea what's causing this šŸ˜•

Does it work when you copy code from other places? Or doesn't work anywhere at all?

This is really cool :)

PYer (2049)

Amazing! It is so cool how you can highlight code, right click it, and "run it on repl.it"
