Repl.it Mobile App
Kognise (219)

As some of you may know, Repl.it isn't the most mobile-friendly website. I'm considering making a mobile app for it, and I'm asking the community:

Would you be interested in this? Would you use it if it was good enough?

And does anyone here want to help contribute? I'm open to any suggestions about technologies to use and I'm up to learning something new.

Please upvote or comment if you'd use it and comment if you want to help. And if you aren't interested I'd love to hear why. Thanks!

UPDATE: Until there's something more official, I made a Discord server.
UPDATE 2: I just released our MVP!!!

Agreed. They should have a desktop app as well.

@Kognise ill take a look at it

katyadee (1119)

This is pretty cool, @Kognise! Can you keep me in the loop with how it goes?

Kognise (219)

@katyadee Sure! If you want, there's a discord server where the devs I found will be posting updates: https://discord.gg/sVxJJZA

I'm still a novice, but I'd like to contribute as much as possible. :D

@Zavexeon Great! We would appreciate as much feedback as possible and accept help from you!

Hmm! Good idea! I was thinking myself about making not an app, but a progressive web app which embeds repl.it and maybe makes some changes to the interface, but this is a good idea as well!

I would use it if it was smooth. The website is terrible on mobile, I can contribute, what technology are you using?

@pattmax Thanks for the support! I'm using React Native. And feel free to join my Discord server -> https://discord.gg/sVxJJZA

I wish I could join but I don't have access to discord atm, on a school chromebook :((
any chance of a Slack workspace?

I would love to contribute! Please count me in! :)

Kognise (219)

@yelephant Awesome! Make sure to join the discord server here, and thanks

yes mainly just for starting up codes away from my computer please

this would be nice

I think this would be a great idea. I don't know much about mobile app development, but could you override the default keyboard in place of a keyboard localized to the language you're programming in? Like if I was using HTML/CSS/JS, could I use a keyboard that has all the most common characters instead of the default? Thanks!

@ryanhallihan I already joined! I'm SCP 173!

RoylatGnail (73)

@EthanJustice SCP 049 is better. Or shy guy

ryanhcode (85)

Yes! Please! I have thought the same thing and am willing to help make this app! Hit me up if you want to continue and I have some development tools in mind.

Mobile version Repl.it is really bad. I can’t copy paste, I can’t use apostrophes...
please please let us copy paste and use apostrophes...

Kognise (219)

@rediar if you're interested, I made a Discord server for people interested in the Repl.it mobile app until we have something more official.

rediar (93)

@Kognise Thanks also happy birthday, have you gotten the website fixed yet?

Kognise (219)

@rediar Which one? And thanks!

Hell yes, I've had some truly horrible experience trying to use Repl.it on mobile

Kognise (219)

@minx28 if you're interested, I made a Discord server for people interested in the Repl.it mobile app until we have something more official.

i rarely use replit on anything except a desktop, but when i do, i literally cannot edit or run. i usually just chrome remote desktop to my home pc, but that's really slow. i bet there would be people who actually do use replit on mobile, so i think it's worth it

@nithilan4 if you're interested, I made a Discord server for people interested in the Repl.it mobile app until we have something more official.

I think @HS was working on this (from discord), at least an android version. I forgot if he stopped.

Also, don't forget to post feedback to https://repl.it/feedback :p

But beyond that, I would really want a mobile app (ahem ahem take note repl)
