So I was messing around a bit and typed in the url repl.it/new which to my surprise results in an actual endpoint.
Now, I expected this url to lead me to a page prompting me to choose a language or just plop me into a coding sandbox, but it turned out to be something more... interesting.
But actually, upon further consideration, I'm guessing this is actually remnant of maybe a legacy slice of repl.it kept probably for compatibility.
If anything though, I haven't seen anyone else talking about this and thought it was pretty cool so thought to share.
Anyone else got any alternative theories? Repl.it lore always be cash money.
