Very nice, maybe a web app of some sort? Word editor?

webmunchster (16)

@webmunchster PHP make it easy to work with forms

RohilPatel (116)

@webmunchster do you know some tutorials for that?

AdCharity (157)

@RohilPatel php won't work with repl if you have an html repl. It'll just make a download instead.

RohilPatel (116)

@AdCharity so then what do I do... ?

AdCharity (157)

@RohilPatel What are you trying to make? You don't need php if you aren't making something to collect data. From what I see, there are no forms. So why bother trying to use php? Plus you are using firebase. Btw if you need help I could :) (i have a bit of experience with firebase)

RohilPatel (116)

@AdCharity yes please! Firebase comes in useful for anylitics, but what else can I do with it?

AdCharity (157)

@RohilPatel :| FIREBASE IS LITERALLY A DATABASE!!!! Sorry - the way you put it really underestimates firebase power. In addition to analytics, you can literally store and retrieve data with firebase, which is how I made datapost-1 (you can find it somewhere if you want, I don't want to advertise links).

RohilPatel (116)

@AdCharity so then.. what's the point of json and xml and sql?

AdCharity (157)

@RohilPatel More languages and different ways to acheive the same effect really (plus firebase = cloud, so no need to set up a physical server). I mean that's kind of like asking y we using HTML, CSS, and JS when we could be using C++ instead

Also json is like a way to storing stuff not really only used for a database

RohilPatel (116)

@AdCharity ok.... I'm still a bit confused

Zavexeon (631)

@RohilPatel JSON is just a fileformat for storing information. It's commonly implemented in databases, though.

RohilPatel (116)

@Zavexeon ok, so then what's the point of Firebase database?

Zavexeon (631)

@RohilPatel The same point as any database, store information.

RohilPatel (116)

True, but what's the point of even installing Firebase then? There has to be something unique about it @Zavexeon

Zavexeon (631)

@RohilPatel It may offer features that other databases may not. I don't know too much about it.

AdCharity (157)

@RohilPatel firebase is more like a service/technology.

What makes firebase unique is that it is secure (if implemented correctly), based on the cloud (near unlimited expansion for data), and is rather easy to use (uses simple js language like "push"), free, can be integrated with nearly all google services (well I mean its made by google), no download needed (like for local servers like X[W]AMPP), multiple language integration, crash reporting, automatic data updating without refreshing the page, etc.

AdCharity (157)

@Zavexeon .... I looked at the group maker for the event.... soooo..... are those the groups? btw its on friday right

Zavexeon (631)

@AdCharity No, those are not the final groups. (Those aren't even all of the submissions.) That's just a test generation for a few submissions to see if the group maker works.

The contest begins on Friday 29th at 5:00 PT.

AdCharity (157)

@Zavexeon oh shucks I thought I discovered something great. Also thanks for the time (I use PT too so lucky me)

Zavexeon (631)

@AdCharity Snooping around in my repls, smh.

AdCharity (157)

@Zavexeon :/ You're a moderator I'm 100000000% sure you could hide repls if you wanted plus you have 531 cycles I got to have inspiration

RohilPatel (116)

Did you add me to the contest? @Zavexeon

Zavexeon (631)

@AdCharity Even as moderator I can't hide repls without the hacker plan. I should have a free hacker plan smh. (jk)

Zavexeon (631)

@RohilPatel I can't yet. It'll have to be done once all the forms are in and we start generating groups. Don't worry, I'll remember.

AdCharity (157)

@Zavexeon well if you're a student head on over to git hub sign up as a student = 1 year free hacker plan. Also I kind of agree - if you're a moderator you are kind of putting in extra work

Zavexeon (631)

@AdCharity Hmm... taking a Highschool grade coding class counts... I think...

RohilPatel (116)

@Zavexeon I might think about doing that in 2 years

Zavexeon (631)

@AdCharity I meant 5:00 PM PT, not 8:00. I do not live in PT so 8:00 is the equivalent for me.

AdCharity (157)

@Zavexeon ahh thanks. that's even better 4 me (doesn't that also mean I'll be able to stay up longer than you?)

Also its a bit unclear, but when we go onto repl at 5:00 PM, are we just going to be redirected to our team multiplayer, or do we have to click on a specific link?

Zavexeon (631)

@AdCharity I'm actually not 100% sure. I'm thinking it will be sent to your notifications as if somebody invited you to multiplayer. The owner is randomly selected.

And yes, it'll probably be around 7:00 for you when I'm in bed.

AdCharity (157)

@Zavexeon honestly I might just pull off an all nighter (beauty of thanks giving break)

RohilPatel (116)

@Zavexeon You added me right? I'm so hyped for this contest. I have to stay up till 7 for me

Zavexeon (631)

@RohilPatel It's not until Friday the 29th.

RohilPatel (116)

I know, but I want to make sure I'm entered. @Zavexeon

RohilPatel (116)

U know, how it's not letting me sign up @Zavexeon

Zavexeon (631)

@RohilPatel Yes, but the final groups won't be generated until likely Friday. I can't add you until then. I added a comment to the group generator to remind myself to add you.

RohilPatel (116)

@Zavexeon Yay! I used a different browser and I signed up. It's a google form, right? And you take the data from that.

Zavexeon (631)

@RohilPatel Alright! You'll be included in the final generation, then.

RohilPatel (116)

@Zavexeon @AdCharity Do any of you have discord? If so, I would like to friend and talk to you so we don't have to do it here. Just reply. Thanks!

Zavexeon (631)

@RohilPatel Zavexeon#2862

AdCharity (157)

RohilPatel (116)

RohilPatel (116)

I know, it sucks... One of my yt channels got deleted on my school account, I had a video with 5000 views on it! It was sad.. is there any other way I can communicate with you? @AdCharity

AdCharity (157)

@RohilPatel i mean... if you want my phone number... (don't worry I'll only give a text now one not my real one)

RohilPatel (116)

Nah, I am good. My parents would be a bit suspicious; I'm only in mid [email protected]

RohilPatel (116)

Let's work on the website I sent you
@AdCharity

RohilPatel (116)
