Will you ever make repl open source?

It would be great to see what's running this website and allow people to change things.

Perhaps! We are considering open sourcing specific parts of the site to allow people to contribute - a lot of people have been asking about internships, and we're such a small company that we don't really have the capacity to invite everyone to our office (we'd totally love to meet everyone though). Open-sourcing parts of Repl.it would allow people to contribute code and get the experience that they want. :)

@timmy_i_chen

Sounds good thank you for the reply. What parts would you consider open sourcing?

Under consideration but we're not making any promises yet:
1. The infrastructure images. I.e. The thing we description of the containers we use to run your code.
2. The IDE core and maybe the plugins.
3. The classroom product.
