How to Get a Repl.It Post to 1000 likes :P
CyanCoding (1958)

Hey y'all! This isn't really a tutorial so I understand if this gets taken down. I just wanted to thank all y'all who upvoted my Brute Force Password Cracker program after I released it three years ago to the point now where we are the first post on repl.it to receive over 1,000 upvotes!

It's been incredible how supportive the Repl.it community has been and I love seeing emails each week about someone commenting on my program where I could improve or how long it's taken to crack their password.

As one of the original Repl.it users, it's been amazing to see the full timeline of this amazing website and be a part of it. As for me, currently, I'm a junior in high school and freshman in college, so that's mostly why I'm inactive on the site. However, I use it once or twice a week for small classes or functions I need to test and I love the portability and ease that Repl.it has always provided!

As for the actual tutorial of getting a Repl.it post to 900 likes, I didn't even create a mindblowing piece of tech or some extraordinary bug-free code. It was all y'all being supportive and helping me out with the start of my coding career. Keep helping each other out and building this amazing community!

Also if you want to chat about programming or really anything, send me a text on insta! @its_actually_cam

Thanks so much everyone!

CyanCoding (1958)

@ThisUserTaken maybe a few days :). How can I forget y'all when I still have my super comfy Repl.it t-shirt hanging in my closet from the first coding competition??

FlaminHotValdez (196)

CyanCoding (1958)

@Bookie0 homie I didn't even know if I should put this in share or tutorials or what so I just made up a tutorial-like thing😂

[deleted]

@Coder100 - No, I think cyan is a color, unless you're talking about Cyan, in which case he is a repl member(who apparently has some history with the repl big peeps, 'coz I'm seein' a lotta 'cyan is back?' messages here lol).

CyanCoding (1958)

@KelpHead the color cyan is back 🟦

[deleted]

@CyanCoding - Yay, I love the color cyan (though that is more of a blue, which makes it even better!!!) lmao

[deleted]

Oof this is the first "How to Get a Repl.It Post to 920 likes :P" tutorial that has only 22 likes 😆

petition to get bfpc to 1000 upvotes

CyanCoding (1958)

@maxyang that's something I can get behind!

Welcome to the Brute Force Password Cracker!

Attempting to crack password via CyanCoding's BFPC...

This could be a while. Feel free to leave this page open while you use the computer.

655 million passwords guessed so far...

CyanCoding's BFPC cracked the password hello in 656001330 tries and 1094 seconds!

That's approximately 600140 guessed passwords per second!

:)

CodingRedpanda (141)

umm.. i think thers a bug

RahulChoubey1 (89)

I love the "is 9 + 10 = 21?" secret

CyanCoding (1958)

@RahulChoubey1 i used to be so sarcastic with my programming🤣

Do you want to continue? "might as well i've been waitin' for hours"

ZDev1 (822)

cyancoding is back

DynamicSquid (4532)

Ooh, an original repl.it user! How was it back then?

CyanCoding (1958)

@DynamicSquid it was pretty simple! Over the years the basis behind Repl.it hasn't really changed. Back when I joined in late 2016 it was just a console and that was pretty much the entire website!

DynamicSquid (4532)

@CyanCoding Wait, how can you be in high school and college at the same time?

CyanCoding (1958)

@DynamicSquid I'm a dual-enrolled student, which means I can take four college courses and four high school courses per semester. This way I can get my A.A. by the time I graduate high school! This is great because it allows me to get my double major in Business Administration and Management and Computer Engineering in just four years after high school!

Thanks Repl.it for helping me figure out what one of my majors is!

DynamicSquid (4532)

@CyanCoding Oh that's so cool! Good luck on your journey!

realTronsi (840)

Hmm smells like advertising :thonk:

WILLIAMBAEWER (31)

I put in password as the password and im at 475 million so far lol

WILLIAMBAEWER (31)

I wonder if I had the hacker plan if it would run faster..?

beginner10coder (12)

Please fix error, when it gets over 110 million try’s it does this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File “main.py”, line 312, in <module>
    tries, timeAmount = tryPassword(password, stringType)
TypeError: cannot unpack non-iterable NoneType object
beginner10coder (12)

It just guessed a simple password 1234 in 45 million try’s

GIACOMO2020 (0)

I'm at 1 billion and a half and still it didn't find it. Should I stop? Lol.

MicroSoftHelp (70)

@CyanCoding for your C++ version of this, could you share the .txt file? I am working on a actual brute force password cracker, and need a wordlist for it.

CyanCoding (1958)

@OperationDemon Yeah! I use the classic rockyou.txt file. I've used larger ones (like a few gigabytes), but those take super long. You can download it here.

RedPandaCode (25)

Tutorial section is for posting code help. It is really annoying when people do this and this is not what the tutorial section is for.

PYer (3572)

OMG cyancoding! You left repl.it for so long (which helped make you more legendary and mysterious)! So cool to see your back (for the time being).

CyanCoding (1958)

@PYer Thanks homie! Always loved seeing you around and your fantastic programs back before I left.

TommyVictory (225)

THIS ENTIRE TIME I COULD HAVE BEEN USING REPL CLEAR AND NOT THE STUPIDLY COMPLICATED ONE

CyanCoding (1958)

@TommyVictory Repl clear was my programming bff😂i was one of the first people to suggest it in feedback

[deleted]

@CyanCoding (sorry for the ping) - I am a new member(unlike the others that seem to be here), so I don't know anything 'bout you(other than the awesome password cracker) but I would like to, so, Hi, I am Percy Jackson :)

NoNameByProgram (191)

@KelpHead Hi, i just stole your credentials Percy!

[deleted]

@CyanCoding - It is awesome to meet you :D

[deleted]

@NoNameByProgram - Wait...what?

NoNameByProgram (191)

@KelpHead You said Percy Jackson so i just stole your credentials

FlaminHotValdez (196)

@KelpHead time to publish a jason vs percy project--o wait jason's ded :(

[deleted]

@maxyang - Sadly...though me and Jason aren't participating in your project. We are best friends, we don't compare against each other. I hope Riordan brings him back, or dear Uncle Rick will meet Jason in the Underworld very soon...

[deleted]

@NoNameByProgram - Still don't get it...

FlaminHotValdez (196)

@KelpHead Don't make me hire eidolons!

FlaminHotValdez (196)

@KelpHead I'm good friends with Nico and Piper, I can make Nico bring back Jason from the dead. If you guys don't wanna fight, I'll make Piper charmspeak you guys into doing it :P If that doesn't work I'll just hire eidolons

[deleted]

@maxyang - Don't make me send Leo after you...because he craves vengeance on eidolons and anyone who commands them (cough Gaia cough)...

FlaminHotValdez (196)

@KelpHead Also have you read new book from rick riordan tower of nero

FlaminHotValdez (196)

@KelpHead fine, you made me. PIPER GET OVER HERE AND CHARMSPEAK JASON AND PERCY INTO FIGHTING bwahahaha you're dead now :)

[deleted]

@maxyang - Pipes won't do it. She is too much in love with Jason to charmspeak him for silly reasons. You should just leave Greek affairs to us mortal.

PS - Neeks can't do that, or he'll have an angry Hades running behind him. You aren't allowed to bring back the dead. Neeks isn't even powerful enough. Only Death(Thanatos) and Hades can do it.

[deleted]

@maxyang - Nah, I haven't read the 3rd or 4th one properly because of...heartbreaking events...I might even stop reading them now...I will console myself with fanfiction where's he is alive...

FlaminHotValdez (196)

@KelpHead evil laugh While you were spending time typing, I captured Annabeth and Frank :D. Fight Jason or I'll kill them mwahahaha you can't stop me now!

[deleted]

@maxyang - He's ded... Pipes can't reach him down below...

[deleted]

@maxyang - Welp, gotta go, don't want an angry Annabeth judo flipping me...

FlaminHotValdez (196)

@KelpHead I'll have you know I'm a son of Pluto.

FlaminHotValdez (196)

@KelpHead Oh, that's not happening, I've captured her and gonna kill her unless u fight jason :)

[deleted]

@maxyang - Annabeth doesn't need my saving. She'll just knee you in your...jewels...lol

Frank can turn into an iguana to escape your restraints :P

[deleted]

@maxyang - As much as I'd love to stay and chat more, I gotta go. Dad's callin'. Bye :)

FlaminHotValdez (196)

@KelpHead Heard of demigod proof magic? They're chained to the wall they can't use their powers while they're in the room

FlaminHotValdez (196)

@KelpHead Although I will admit, knees in the "jewels" will be very painful.

FlaminHotValdez (196)

@KelpHead *smirks FIGHT JASON OR ELSE!

NoNameByProgram (191)

@KelpHead well, just think of it as a welcome to repl.it (where some people make bad jokes)

CyanCoding (1958)

This is the most confusing series of comments I've ever read haha

[deleted]

@CyanCoding - Well, if you have read the Percy Jackson series and its sequel series Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan, you will understand. They are the two best series in the world for teens. I myself, am a character from it lol

[deleted]

@NoNameByProgram - Now I get it. The bad joke part at least lmao

EpicGamer007 (1157)
