Ask coding questions

If you could ask the Repl.it team anything, what would you ask?
katyadee (1151)

It could be about the product, a coding question, or even something personal (within reason)! I'll see if I can wrangle answers for ya.

What is the coolest feature of Repl.it the users can't see?

When will repl.it be making a music parody video like SUSE and MongoDB made?

@21natzil I dunno, we might need a lyricist ;) Know anyone?

21natzil (823)

@timmy_i_chen I'll keep an eye out 🤔

Do you guys work all together in a building or everyone works at home? Do you get paid or you just do it for fun?

timmy_i_chen (988)

@lsambrook Most of us are at Repl.it HQ in SF, although some of us are also remote. Sometimes even people in SF work from home when it's necessary. Speaking personally, I do it for fun and to get paid ;)

@timmy_i_chen Thanks for taking some time to reply ;)

How many people use replit?

Why does the repl.it team like python so much? (like seriously, there's like 5 versions of python on repl.it)

JustARatherRidi (191)

@theangryepicbanana honestly I think it's because its just that popular (whether you like it or not), and I'm pretty sure a good chunk of all the repls are python. So it makes sense to keep adding features to it.

timmy_i_chen (988)

@theangryepicbanana Its our most popular language, and people commonly choose it for learning programming, which is good growth for us.

lsambrook (286)

@timmy_i_chen I agree, I'm French and 15 years old and I started to learn python at school in October 2018. I only knew how to do maths and VERY simple and not very useful things... Now I write in html, Js, Css so it's not that easy but it's very usefull.

Hi,
how is going with OpenCV for Python implementation?

timmy_i_chen (988)

@kaiserb1 Give us a repl where you're trying it out and we can try to fix the issues surrounding it!

How do you feel about the ending of GoT?

katyadee (1151)

@EthanJustice I didn't watch GoT! Too much of a commitment. LOL.

EthanJustice (62)

@katyadee No! Yeah it wasn't worth the hype.

katyadee (1151)

@EthanJustice What's your favorite show on TV?

EthanJustice (62)

@katyadee I don't watch much TV, but the Office!

katyadee (1151)

@EthanJustice That's my favorite show! I've watched the entire series like 6 times, LOL.

ummmmm can u delete the repl.it waking up thing its kind of annoying and for index.html can u make a option for us to choose or make our own 404.html page. If thats to much work can u just make the same 404 as a nodejs page or something

erm

if there's a "game" folder why are there no games?

JoshuaKing1 (6)

I'd have them update languages more often and add ruby gems.

Who pays you all for working? @amasad?

katyadee (1151)

@Existential I'm not sure what you mean!

Why did you choose Repl.it inspite of so many other IDE's online. What is so special about Repl.it. (Same Question as the deleted one. Curious too.)

katyadee (1151)

@SolarBoom We created it, of course!
