@KelvinVerhey If you are going to use vscode then use it no one is stopping you. We are just building these as side projects, or more accuratly, a practice project related to helping/contrubuting repl.it, but not as an employee. Yes sure vscode is far more better but the reason we make it is because we want people to know about repl.it. The discord rich presence in my app can potentially be a way to tell people what you are using and they might be intrested. It's not like a job of some sort, we are just free developers. As of today, there's a lot of third party clients for Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. They are all built on electron, yet I don't see many problems or if they ever get into copyright problems. Because using electron is really like packaging a website, there's no limit as to what you can make. Same for vscode, there's a fork of vscode, vscodium. It's similar thing to this desktop app, but people can modify it under the licence. Just like repl.it, we didn't steal their product, we ehanced it.

Hey everyone it's Leon here, the person that @eankeen mentioned that made The un-official app regardless of it being official or not, it has a few cool functionalities featuring discord rich presience and themes provided by @mat1. If you want to test it out, feel free to download the releases. I'm currerently working on re-writing the app since it's been dead for a long time and we needed a lot of new stuff. U can contact me on this thread or the offical repl.it discord thanks :) Also if you have questions about why it is not official, I have talked to @amasad in person and this was supposed to be an interm project but things didn't quiet work out as intended, and since the team really haven't planned to have an desktop app, so I made it un-officially.

Why do the terminal fail? It doesn't start my code which normally works flawlessly locally.

Looks like there isn’t a main.py file to run. In a repl u need a file called main.py to start the program.

🔴[NEW]🔴 Python Lib for www.jsonstore.io. DON'T LOSE YOUR DATA AGAIN WITH JSON STORE 🔴[NEW]🔴
posted to Share by leon332157

Hey everyone, I am aware with the issue of this library, fortunately I think the problem is on jsonstore's side. I'm sorry for any data loss that might have happened. If jsonstore resolves the issue, I would fix it asap. Thanks.

@KelvinVerhey How about you actually stop judging other people's project and show us something u did to actually help this community, or just people in genral. Just like you said. Get out there, change the world for the better. There are schools in abundance in the world that don't even have computer labs. How can they reach the website when they don't even have a computer to do that? There are deeper core problems to solve here. I'm not trying to be a jerk, but this website needs help in other ways that are honestly much more productive. If you are not interested in this project nor this website, please leave this comminuty and discord. As I have seen how u said how useless this website and how u said vscode can just be such a better thing. We do NOT welcome these kind of comments on out forum. No one forces u to stay here.

@GDSuperMoonSupe Looks like you are running this on repl.it, which it's not intended to be ran on, I suggest you download the app from the release page on GitHub and install it to try it out.

@mkhoi It's made with electron and typescript. Check out the GitHub Repo https://github.com/repl-it-discord/repl-it-electron

how do i fix this error. (repl process died unexpectedly)
posted to Ask by hadthelad

@hadthelad Then you should avoid using exit() at all because of how repl.it detects a process running. You should use break in a while loop instead of exit() Also please don't spam multiple posts about the same question.

Pip install and packages

You need to use an underscore instead of dash.

posted to Ask by FARHEENPALAGIRI

Because + in Python is for adding strings. U can either convert the int into a string, or use ',' instead of '+' .

@KrystanKlukos And this is also a Python basics, I would suggest you to review data types, operations, input and print functions. :)

Trouble with numbers and text in the same line (Python 3)
posted to Ask by KrystanKlukos

@KrystanKlukos Ok, so first of all, (a-1) is a tuple which contains integer a-1, assigned to b, same for c, and d and e is a tuple with string in it, so if you call print function with these data type, it will not work.

@Lord_Poseidon I don't think I had any 32bit build for Linux since electron dropped support since version 4.0
