How Did YOU Find Repl.it
PYer (2308)

Repl.it is one of many online coding platforms. How did you find this one? Did you do a google search? A friend? Why did you choose Repl.it over the many others that exist out there. Currently repl.it is one of the most popular. I will say that if i google's filtering and searching system were different, i wouldn't have found it. I found Repl.it with online python3. Comment below your own story!

Reasons so far:

  • Coding on multiple computers
  • Learning at school
  • Looking for better online compilers/interpreters
  • Searching on google for online <coding language>
  • Friends
  • Coding in school without downloading interpreters/compilers
  • Making games that wouldn't work on normal compilers/interpreters
  • Entering competitions that require repl.it
  • Storing code online. To show other people, or other uses

It's really cool to see how other people found repl.it. If I had been told to list as many reasons as I could, I would have gone with Bullet 1, Bullet 2, Bullet 3, and maybe Bullet 5.

Through computing teacher because we have chromebooks which can't install anything.

@ArchieMaclean Yeah. Teachers don't usually allow children to download/install anything on school chromebooks.

@PYer You just can't on ours - only chrome extensions can be downloaded. There is a text editor, but there is no python chrome extension :(

@ArchieMaclean I actlually have a python shell. Here is a link: Python Console

@ArchieMaclean That's how I go found it. I just learned Python as I went on this site. There is a gaming/programming based "sub-school" at mine, but I wasn't accepted. It turns out they also use repl.it even though they have Windows laptops, and they're allowed to download programs on them.
