🥇repl.run homepage contest 💻
amasad (1224)

We're about to release repl.run to the public and we want something cool to exist at the root.

Right now we have Star Wars ASCII animation. Which is kind of lame (Star Trek FTW!) so I'd like to run a mini contest where the winner repl.run program would get featured at the root and you also get a $50 Amazon Gift Card to sweeten the deal.

I think it should be something fantastic. Go crazy. Make it weird. The only requirement is that it has some explanation of what repl.run is for new users.

Here's a sample copy for what the intro could say:

  • title: repl.run
  • tagline: publish your terminal apps as websites
  • description: up until now there was no way to publish terminal applications on the web. Although terminal apps is what most programmer start their career building (e.g. Hello World) most programs live and die on the coders' machine. repl.run changes this by making it possible to publish an app written in any language that repl.it supports on the web.

Deadline: Friday the 22th

@amasad Do you think there is a maximum number of characters wide that it should be so that it can fit on any screen?

@joshwood you could check how wide the screen is programmatically and adjust your code for that.
