How Did YOU Find Repl.it
PYer (2511)

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.

Honestly I found repl.it at school(two-ish years ago) when searching google for python ide online.

@XavierDD cool. python seems to be the language people look for online

@PYer I also think I found it a month earlier than that for java but ending up setting up an IDE for java. In many ways this site has been one of the only places I could practice my programming skills.

@XavierDD agreed. I spend practically all of my computer time on this site.

@PYer with all of the amazing tools provided and the amazing community I don't think I would use any other website for programming on a mobile device(IPad).

PYer (2511)

@XavierDD agreed. They could improve the mobile support though.

@PYer yes agreed, but I'm growing use to some of the limitations, like not as in depth code suggestions or the description of the functions, but its better than trying to tap the screen to move the cursor as it was when the desktop version was on mobile. If they change it again I would have to break my pattern yet again and start from the bottom up. :)

@XavierDD hmmm... I never thought of that. I would agree with the code suggestions part though,
