The Cactapedia (Cactus Encyclopedia)

CodingCactus (2075)

Was originally, just a bit of a joke, but I decided to continue it a bit more, because pretty much anything is better than just sitting around during lock down.


So, here is the beginning of The Cactapedia. I started with doing lots of cacti alphabetically (2), but then decide to just do the ones that I thought looked pretty cool.


Here is @ChezCoder's version of it, with extra JS functionality:

Edit: Added Prickly Pear (Opuntia ficus-indica). Suggested by @NoelBryan.
Edit2: Added Cylindropuntia cholla. Suggested by @ipastrano.
Edit3: Added Parodia leninghausii. Suggested by @LizFoster.
Edit4: Added Candelabra Cactus (Myrtillocactus Cochal), Corynopuntia Invicta, Red Torch Cactus (Echinopsis Huascha). Suggested by ME.
Edit5: Added Astrophytum asterias. Suggested by @Warhawk947.
Edit6: Added more readable font option on home page. Suggested by @Nettakrim.
Edit7: Added Golden Barrel (Echinocactus grusonii) and Hedgehog Cactus (Echinocereus engelmannii). Suggested by @IndyCarter.
Edit*: Added Peyote (Lophophora williamsii). Suggested by @DannyIsCoding


Any suggestions for cacti to be added are more than welcome :)

@LizFoster ooo, they look nice, will do :)

CodingCactus (2075)

@LizFoster wait, when did you get so many cycles!?

LizFoster (568)

@CodingCactus Oh my! That's a very good question (( o o))

I only had around 250 or something like that last night; is someone upvoting all of my comments suddenly? wwwwwwww

CodingCactus (2075)

@LizFoster I dunno, lol. You're top contributor for the last 7 days now, you knocked me off the top :(

StudentFires (292)

@LizFoster Woah!? Liz... you didn't make a new account to cheat, did you? This is reportable and against Repl's rules, even if someone else did it. @theangryepicbanana You're a mod right?

CodingCactus (2075)

@StudentFires
lol, @LizFoster definitely seems like someone who would do that :)

StudentFires (292)

@CodingCactus I was about to reference this. This seems more like the second part, that's why I mentioned, even if someone else did it.

CodingCactus (2075)

@StudentFires yeah ik, the annoying thing about upvoting comments is that you can't see who's done it
:(

StudentFires (292)

@CodingCactus But, I'm pretty sure the Repl admins / mods do.
Pff, 208 - 350 in one week.

CodingCactus (2075)

@StudentFires btw, don't know if you saw, but I've added a few more cacti

CodingCactus (2075)

@StudentFires You know that I got pretty much all my cycles in one week, thanks to my Tic Tac Toe Game and answering loads of ask question.

Also, my Tic Tac Toe game is used on the repl.it explanation pages thing:

@CodingCactus Why did they put your Repl there? What was the logic behind the choice?

LizFoster (568)

@StudentFires What the heck do you mean, another account?? Why would I do that??

LizFoster (568)

@CodingCactus Holy mother of Christ that scared me!

CodingCactus (2075)

@StudentFires They put it there because it was just so amazing, they decided to use it as an example of how their site works

StudentFires (292)

@LizFoster I said I doubted you did that, but someone else might've upvoted your posts on purpose. They still need to be caught.

LizFoster (568)

@StudentFires Oh, okay..? You really scared me for a second there (( o o))

CodingCactus (2075)

@LizFoster It was funny because you are pretty much the opposite of a person that would do that :)

StudentFires (292)

@CodingCactus Isn't that a real Repl rule? So can I just do that for real? I'll have over 1k in a minute. I've made over 1k comments + posts + answers

LizFoster (568)

@CodingCactus I'm glad you think that of me! (Lol)
