Announcing repl.run: publish your terminal apps as websites

UPDATE: repl.run is now deprecated. More info here: https://docs.repl.it/repls/repl-run

Almost everyone's first computer program is a terminal program along the lines of:

name = input('What is your name?\n')
print('Hi, %s.' % name)

Every programmer has experienced an intense sense of accomplishment when someone uses their program. The problem is that, until today, there was no easy way to share text and terminal-based programs.

That's why we're excited to announce repl.run, where every, and I mean every, terminal program on Repl.it can be published as a website.

You'll get a website with a fullscreen terminal with your program automatically running. Here's the @pyelias's classic chatroom repl.runing:

Here's what it looks like to publish @ericqweinstein's snake game:

You can play it at sssnake.ericqweinstein.repl.run. And the chatroom here: chatroom.pyelias.repl.run.

This is only the beginning. We think we built a whole new way to share terminal apps on the web and it's going to take us a while, with your help, to explore all the implications here.

If you would like to still see these repls change repl.run to repl.co and if you want to view the source change repl.run to repl.co/__repl
