Spotlight pages

Hiya, I guess I'm giving you feedback :). I agree with most of the people here, spotlight pages are great and all but I could do with getting and option to switch them on and off! Also I figure you will be phasing out ReplTalk with your new "Explore" page, and it will be great just like all things on Replit, but I don't like idea of phasing out ReplTalk. I've been here for almost a year and the one feature that keeps attracting me is ReplTalk, a friendly and awesome forum for coders. I love the current model of sharing projects (posts on ReplTalk), and I firmly believe that sharing only project repls is not as great as giving content in posts and sharing a project. That's just what I think, hope you read through this without getting a migraine :D. ~ Ray

It used to be that I could point someone at a particular file in a repl with a link, e.g.:

[ https://repl.it/@jim_r/teaser3049#teaser3049b.py ]

Now it just dumps you on the empty Spotlight page, and you have to go to "Code" and then root out the file yourself.

Is there any workaround for this?

On the whole I think I would prefer people to land on my repls in "Code" view. Maybe there could be an option to enable Spotlight per repl, and land on a README.md page?

I don’t like that this is on by default, as sometimes people would definitely NOT want people commenting “tHeS DUSnt wORK” when I am working on something. Further more, I do not want to see Repl talk being phased out. I like the upvoting, cycles and posts. So only if you made the spotlight page like it’s own post, I would not support this. Plus the point I made earlier about spotlight page being able to be turned on or off, this would make spotlight pages basically like a post at this point. So then there would be no need for spotlight pages. You could just have an option to link a repl to a post.

Tdlr: I would like for spotlight pages to not exist, and instead have posts linked to repls.

This is awesome!! Please also make it embeddable, It's much better than current embed version.

Not a fan of this being on by default. Please make it off by default, with an opt-in option for specific Repls, with an option to share a spotlight URL as

@thecoder876
suggests.

Please make it so that team repls that you don't have access to automatically open in Spotlight mode. Now, for them to open in Spotlight mode, you need to add ?view=1 to the end of the URL. Example: https://repl.it/@SimpleEdit/editor opens in code view even if you don't have access, but https://repl.it/@thecoder876/GameGo does. https://repl.it/@SimpleEdit/editor?view=1 also does.

I think it would be nice if you could have a description in the repl spotlight; your repl description could say what it does. Also, it would be nice to be able to copy & paste pictures in the spotlight pages commenting.

Ah yes. Trolling decreases by 40%. (Good job, these spotlight pages are really refined! I like the style!)

Please add the ability to delete comments on your REPLs or turn off commenting as an option.

Like I commented on Twitter, this new design is not great for our workflow with Repl.it - would love to be able to see the code next to the final product, for multiple reasons.

Maybe it could be a preference that user's can turn off.

I have a question. I don't understand what will happen to repl talk if you make explore. Repl talk is where you share your posts and people upvote it. Then what will explore be? Will it have upvoting or will it just be a place where you can see repls that are in-progress and you can help the owner by giving suggestions and help

You should make a search repls thing where you don't have to share a post to make is visible

Looking forward to the ability to have full-page output for X Window graphical REPLs in Spotlight pages, and possibly also in workspaces.

Very cool! But maybe add a report feature because people are already taking advantage of it and advertising and cursing
