[Beta 1.0] repl.email - an exclusive, but fully functional email service
MarcusWeinberger (585)

repl.email

I feel like people don't quite get it: this is a normal email service. Like gmail. You can literally sign up to youtube with this address. peace

Welcome to the initial beta release! A ton of new features have been added, including a complete redesign thanks to @rafrafraf (who is working on the frontend).

What's new:

  • Reply to emails
  • Profile pic in the navbar
  • Better design
  • Password-protect the contents of your email
  • Paste images directly into your email

PS: the database had to be migrated - so the autocomplete list will not be fully populated until users sign in. Also your forwarding address has been wiped. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Well done! I'm always so jealous on Fullstack and Python-Web coders

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@DynamicSquid hey your web design is better than mine will ever be, pretty much all the frontend is @rafrafraf

DynamicSquid (3612)

@MarcusWeinberger eh, I don't do much frontend web. and I don't even know how to do backend stuff. but you guys make such cool stuff with backend

HahaYes (1221)

@DynamicSquid mr.squid... C++ can be used for server side... just saying......

DynamicSquid (3612)

@HahaYes yeah but it's harder since a lot of high reputation people on stack overflow say so

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@DynamicSquid I love that phrase lmao

since a lot of high reputation people on stack overflow say so

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@DynamicSquid does 165 rep count as high? I'm quite proud of it

DynamicSquid (3612)

@MarcusWeinberger actually yes. as long as you're proud of it, that's good

Lethdev2019 (183)

I invited you to a possible look to the email client. Please be warned, it is quite complicated. @MarcusWeinberger

Lethdev2019 (183)

I do front end stuff though (PIE, for example, is ALL FRONTEND) @DynamicSquid

potatojs (804)

Great Job!!!
i don't know why SO polished project gets less upvotes than some very decent ones :(

ExtremelyGood (5)

Woah, I did not know you could do this much stuff with Python!

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@ExtremelyGood yep! That's why it's my favourite language

Lethdev2019 (183)

@MarcusWeinberger yep, that is why i make stuff like auto-updaters, installers, games, qt apps and all that jazz in python.

PYer (3464)

It's a little cramped the styling. Maybe try removing the border bordering all the content of the emails... Also when I have a list of emails, they are all light grey against a lighter gray which is hard to read. Great project though!!!!!

dabs364 (276)

ooh cool!
so much better than the other one...

dabs364 (276)

@MarcusWeinberger Do you want this to go on the hot board?

dabs364 (276)

i dont know flask...
but i know python and JS

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@dabs364 flask is pretty simple, if you know python its not difficult to learn

dabs364 (276)

@MarcusWeinberger ok ill try it
BTW this post is on the hot board now (2nd to the top)

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@dabs364 how's it already on hot? and with only 3 votes

dabs364 (276)

@MarcusWeinberger well, it happens if it got the votes quickly (check) and many people are chatting on it (check)

:)

dabs364 (276)

@MarcusWeinberger now more upvotes are coming!!!

RogueHalo (403)

God damn, this deserves way more attention. Great Job!

Leroy01010 (370)

can you add permanent delete

rafrafraf (237)

@Leroy01010 thanks for the idea bro, ill add it to the to do list

sugarfi (524)

Wow, this is great! IMO the frontend has a few minor issues, but overall amazing work!

userSM (227)

This is so cool!

sojs (246)

I wish I could upvote more than once lol

sojs (246)

Okay.

WOW

the styling is insane
edit:
everything is insane

rafrafraf (237)

sexy email service

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@CodeLongAndPros what's nsfw about that? it is a pretty sexy website

CodeLongAndPros (1369)

@MarcusWeinberger I got a report about 'bad language', just letting you know. Me? I don't really care, again, just letting you know.

Kookiez (129)

wow, this is really good!

Ravens0606 (37)

Hello! I just wanted to say, FreebirdOS is finished, and re-named to BlueOS! Here it is! https://blue.ravens0606.repl.co/

frostedbutton75 (36)

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah whoa

Sreshthangsu (4)

hey this is amazing but why do I get this error from what u wrote ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'cryptobaker'

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@Sreshthangsu ah you have to add it to the packages manually for some reason.

It's a little library I made, but repl.it doesn't recognize it yet for some reason

ssura (1)

When you email from repl.email to gmail.com, it goes straight into the Promotions tab. I'm not too sure how you would go about fixing this, but I think Yahoo and Outlook work fine. Another issue I'm seeing is with long emails is that the text never fits on your screen because the groups of text are long strings printed in a straight line. You could make it [optional] that users can set their screen size so that it separates a line every, say, 11 inches(or 15 inches, 17 etc. whatever the user puts in).

rafrafraf (237)

@ssura text should fit on the screen fine now, im not doing much of the backend so im not sure about the gmail promotions thing but thanks for letting us know

EthanCulp (31)

Suggestion: Add a custom right click menu. This right click menu would have options to mark as read, unread, reply, forward, etc.

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@EthanCulp That would be a good idea, all UI suggestions should go to @rafrafraf

rafrafraf (237)

@EthanCulp thanks for the suggestion bro, just added it to my to do list, also ill be adding a feedback/suggestion button which will allow you to email me and @MarcusWeinberger anything else you think of through repl.email

EthanCulp (31)

With the forward mail feature, are you able to forward mail to a gmail account?

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@EthanCulp yes you can forward to any valid email

EthanCulp (31)

I really believe this should become an official thing on repl.it!

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@EthanCulp I might send them an email and see if we can do some form on integration

EthanCulp (31)

@MarcusWeinberger That would be great! I would love to see that! Edit: Especially because the only form of dming people
is through comments or inviting them to repls

Lethdev2019 (183)

@MarcusWeinberger
could you please add attachments in emails.

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@Lethdev2019 next on my todo list :), they're actually already getting passed to the client, if you open the JS console they should be there (check the emails var), but yeah, ill work on displaying and attatching them next

Lethdev2019 (183)

please also add a progress bar too. @MarcusWeinberger

JordanDixon1 (354)

This is amazing... How did you get a custom domain name?

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@JordanDixon1 bought it :) if you're a student, try signing up for the GitHub student developer pack, you get tons of freebies!

JordanDixon1 (354)

@MarcusWeinberger Is github student developer pack free?

JordanDixon1 (354)

@JordanDixon1 okay, I've signed up for it... what kind of freebies are you talking about?

VulcanWM (2180)

Can you make one for my custom domain?

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@VulcanWM would you like me to make it so you can send from your custom domain, or so anyone can register an account at your custom domain?

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@VulcanWM cool, can you shoot me an email at MarcusWein[email protected] and we'll chat there

VulcanWM (2180)

btw, your server's overloaded @MarcusWeinberger

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@VulcanWM shouldn't be, we're just doing a lot of work so we keep restarting it sorry

VulcanWM (2180)

np, I'll just wait for a few minutes like the website says @MarcusWeinberger

MarcusWeinberger (585)

@VulcanWM refresh it a couple times, emails should load under 10 seconds

Leroy01010 (370)

I now use this for everything

TheProgrammer3 (6)

@MarcusWeinberger by "a normal email service" does it mean you can send emails to other clients such as Gmail and Outlook? Because when I tried that it didn't work.

Edit: Nevermind, it just took a long time to send.

DavidShen2 (55)

Wow! You can email outide of repl.it domain!
