Repl.it Desktop 😯
AppliDev (84)

Hello, replers I was just wondering if any of you are interested in a repl.it desktop app. I know they were working on one but I think they stopped that one. So if you are interested in a repl.it desktop app just upvote this (If we get 20 upvotes I will do it). And I will try to convince the creators (which are @amasad and @hayaodeh ) to let me code one and if you guys want to help! I am happy to collab with you!
Also, by the way, I am planning to use Electron!

@KelvinVerhey If you are going to use vscode then use it no one is stopping you. We are just building these as side projects, or more accuratly, a practice project related to helping/contrubuting repl.it, but not as an employee. Yes sure vscode is far more better but the reason we make it is because we want people to know about repl.it. The discord rich presence in my app can potentially be a way to tell people what you are using and they might be intrested. It's not like a job of some sort, we are just free developers. As of today, there's a lot of third party clients for Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. They are all built on electron, yet I don't see many problems or if they ever get into copyright problems. Because using electron is really like packaging a website, there's no limit as to what you can make. Same for vscode, there's a fork of vscode, vscodium. It's similar thing to this desktop app, but people can modify it under the licence. Just like repl.it, we didn't steal their product, we ehanced it.
