This (on notblockedgames.cf) is illegal. You have to give an option to opt out of cookies.

Edit: Ok, your entire website is very dodgy. Why does it give an unstoppable alert when I try to use inspect element?
Also, nice job obfuscating your IP-grabbing code. Nope nope nope.

How does AoC work?

Each problem will have an input, which will be some text containing a list of numbers or words or other characters. The values will be different for every user. You will need to write a program to process these as the puzzle says, and output a single short answer.
Check out the 2019 questions if you want some examples!

Where do we solve the problems?

In a repl of course!

How does the website get our answers?

The answer will be a single number or word or string of characters. The website can easily check if it's correct, by processing the input itself.

How does it time how long it takes?

It just times how long from when the problem is released to when you submit a correct answer.

What does fork do?
posted to Ask

Forking someone else's repl creates a copy of the repl in your account, which you can edit. Although this is very good if you want to, for example, improve someone else's code, you musn't fork someone else's repl and claim it as your own, and it's always good to put in the repl's description that it's a fork of someone else's.

Chat on the terminal
posted to Tutorials by jajoosam

Hey! Nice tutorial but a few issues:
Firstly, it doesn't work, in that messages you send aren't actually posted. Easy fix: replace

rl.question("» ", (answer) => {
    // "» " Gives a prompt for the user
    socket.emit("message", buffer);


rl.question("» ", (answer) => {
    // "» " Gives a prompt for the user
    socket.emit("message", answer); // <-- There - replace buffer with answer!

and it should work fine!

Also, if you want it to display who posted the message, change socket.emit("message", answer); to socket.emit("message", id+": "+answer);

Awesome tutorial though, I'm no good with JS so I would never have been able to create something like this without a tutorial!

@CodingCactus ALWAYS VALIDATE BACKEND (but if possible, validate frontend too, that way a user can get a response quicker if they're not malicious and trying to bypass checks)

@ZDev1 did you READ the thing that says READ BEFORE SUBMITTING? As NoNameByProgram says, the variable data already contains the input, as you would know if you had read the help that it says you should read.

Brute Force Password Cracker
posted to Share by CyanCoding

Hi! This is a cool project and I really like the use of colour. However, in places, there are major issues with the code: in under 10 minutes, I cut your 323 lines of code down to 259, with several lines becoming much shorter and easier.
The key to this is the string module:

import string

This module has several highly useful constants:

!"#$%&\'()*+,-./:;<=>[email protected][\\]^_`{|}~
0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ!"#$%&\'()*+,-./:;<=>[email protected][\\]^_`{|}~

I went through your code and replaced instances of "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz" with string.ascii_lowercase for example.
The other thing I did was the section where you detect if certain groups of characters are in the password. You did

if "A" in password or "B" in password...

I changed this to

if any([char in password for char in string.acii_uppercase]):

The any function requires a list and if any of the items in the list are True, it returns True. The [char in password for char in string.acii_uppercase] creates a list: each item is True of False, depending on whether each character in string.ascii_uppercase is in the password. This means that if any of the upper case letters are in the password, our any() returns True. I did the same thing with the lowercase, digits and punctuation bits, the punctuation one being particularly satsisfying because previously you had individual if statements for each separate character.

AI that will guess your age Beta
posted to Share by galaxyraider9

Nice, it got my age exactly right!
Can I suggest something to improve this? It would be cool if you added allowed the user to choose their input unit (for example, for weight, they could type either "170cm" or "68in"). Another nice thing would be to make gender input case-insensitive - small touches like this are what really push a program to the next level.
If you're not sure how to go about unit conversion - you might want to have a look at my API hehe

Noob here: How do I call a python script from another python script?
posted to Ask

No @gbafana25, it does work - you just need to create another file my_module.py (or whatever you want to call it) and do import my_module wherever you want to use it.

If you have my_function in my_module.py which is inside the folder my_folder, you can do

import my_folder.my_module

or you can do

from my_folder.my_module import my_function

Use a web site as a console for a code, without showing the code
posted to Ask by afsalazar

Hi afsalazar,
The easiest way to do what I think you mean is probably to use repl.run. To do this, enable explorer mode in your account (account > roles > explorer) and then whenever you use a python repl, a repl.run page will display instead of the normal terminal. You can then share the link to this page, and the repl.run automatically runs the code whenever anyone visits it, without showing people the actual code.

The const h1 should be defined outside of the function. This will also make it insignificantly faster :)
