Hello everyone! Let's use this thread to get to know each other. Just say hi and a few words about who you are, maybe what are you building or learning with Repl.it.

If you're not comfortable sharing anything then share something fun 😉

I am a 15 year old who has been programming since 5th grade and loves it. I know over 10 different programming languages like HTML/CSS/JS/jQuery, Ruby, Python (ugh), Perl 6, Scala, TI-Basic (taught myself), C++, etc. I have been working on my own programming language called Talk (not related to SmallTalk), which is based on AppleScript and written in Perl 6. I am also kinda obsessed with a game called Geometry Dash (which is cool). Sometimes when I'm bored, I'll decide learn a new language (just learned Pascal). I'm looking for a way to use either Ruby or Perl 6 as normal scripting languages in websites. I hate Python.

I also use crappy devices like a 2007 MacBook and an iPhone 5

@theangryepicbanana Welcome! Would love to check out Talk at some point. Is it on Repl.it? I think some people are working on programming languages too here.

@amasad Since Replit does not yet support Perl 6 (the language it's written in), I have been making it on glot.io (link below). I'm glad that you are interested in it though! Link: https://glot.io/snippets/f0l05x87qs

It's not finished yet, but I guess it works for now

@theangryepicbanana Same I really really hate Python

@caleblol yeah, and it's not just because it's super popular and overused. It's because it is missing features that nearly every other language has like a case/switch statement, anonymous functions (lambdas don't count), dynamic function/variable calling, method overloading, etc. It's SO overrated.

@caleblol and @theangryepicbanana have you tried python3 or python with turtle?

1
theangryepicbanana (664)

@UndertaleRulez first of all, if I have to use Python, I'm using Python 2. Second of all, turtle sucks. And lastly, yes I know both of them.

@theangryepicbanana Yes, Python lacks a few features that a lot of programming languages have. But it also has a lot of features a lot of programming languages lack. One simple task in Python could be 10 different tasks in, say, PHP. Also, Python is super high level to work with, but you can do some very low level things, like create a server based just on sockets. I do agree that it's overused, though. I'd much prefer creating a server with Node.js.

@Lumpy_Wiggles A simple task in any language takes 10x more work to do in PHP. As for what I was saying:
#Python:
for i in range(0, 10):
print i
#Perl 6:
.say for ^10

Oh, for anyone who was wondering, here are my GD stats:

@theangryepicbanana Cool :) I have (I think) 600 diamonds, 100 stars, 9 secret coins, 15 user coins, and, um, 0 completed demon levels. Pretty sad.

theangryepicbanana (664)

@GildieEverblaze that's pretty good tbh. The demons I've completed are: Platinum Adventure, Laser Room (favorite), and The Lightning Road. Working on Proximity (by Lemons), yStep, and Lights and Thunder.
