Will it ever be possible to have multiple people coding on the same repl at the same time? I know ,for me, this is repl's biggest drawback. Will this ever happen?

This is in active development. You'll be seeing this soon - and more. :)

@timmy_i_chen Will we be able to access and edit a repl on multiple devices at the same time on the same account? We have shared accounts at school, and this would be groundbreaking here. Infact, this account is a collaboration.

@timmy_i_chen YAY! I can make other people write AIs while I code!

Hello @timmy_i_chen
I came on this post just scrolling. I know its possible to be in multiplayer on computer, thanks for that! However i dont think this is possible on mobile.

I just wanted to know if you guys are developing it on mobile, because i dont have a compute and i work mostly on ipad.
Thank you so much 😊 !!

Have a great day

Any update on this one. Would pay money for this feature. When student is creating something and has a question i can do editing on his project without doing fork, from which student would have later to copy past code anyways...

If we made a collaborative repl, then posted the repl, only the person that posted the repl will get the votes and . I would recommend, team, that each person would receive one vote per vote on the post.

Maybe it can be like scratch and people can code together or indepently and upload and share project or keep it private without cost

not just that, we're creating new features for sharing as well, are you on Discord Channel ?

I was about to ask the same question and then I saw your post. I think that collaborative programming would be useful. One time, I was working on a project for school and I wanted to code something on It took us forever because one person would paste their code on a google docs, then the other would add that code to their repl. I hope that they do make an update, where collaborative programming is allowed.

@fullern000 Maybe sharing forks is better than copying and pasting?

@masfrost Hmm. I never thought of that.
