What do YOU think of repl.it's new homepage?

In the past, when you visited repl.it and were logged in, you'd be redirected to your repls. While this was efficient, there was room to do so much more. So, recently the repl.it now redirects to repl.it/~, which greets repl.it members with the same options to make and open recently viewed repls like before, along with new features such as tutorials, and top Repl Talk posts!

This is a huge change, but what do you guys think? Are you satisfied with the layout? Do you want more, or maybe less? Comment, and let us know your thoughts!

P.S. ~ on linux is commonly used to identify the home directory

Here's my feedback:

  • There's too much whitespace.
  • Sections learn with tutorials and introduce yourself! are not of much use to regular and experienced users, so you may consider showing them only in the first few sessions (e.g. 5) or for the first week of using Repl.it. Or it should be possible to manually remove unwanted sections.
  • Although I appreciate the focus of posts from the feed on the language(s) I use, I routinely skim all the latest Repl Talk posts for content of general interest to Repl.it users, such as the announcements of new features or language-independent topics like IDE tips or tutorials. So, in addition to posts from the feed, I'd like to have the feed with all the latest posts.

Thanks for asking!

@PaoloAmoroso I use both those all the time, maybe instead eventually work it in with a settings option to turn it off...? Idk
