CODE JAM #10

Hello, there replers! This announcement marks the beginning of our 10th community code jam. Again, the winner of the jam will be awarded 1 month of hacker plan along with (for those who use discord) a special role on our Discord server and a custom emoji of their choice added there!

The jam will end exactly 2 days from when this announcement was made. Any later changes will not be taken into account while judging.

THE THEME

Finally, as to what everyone has been waiting for, the theme of this jam is HELP WITH CODING. Make something that helps others code, learn how to code, motivates them to code, anything that helps with coding directly!

Note that your programs will be judged from a user's perspective so there are no restrictions as to what you can and cannot use in your submissions. However, you cannot build over an old project, it has to be a fresh start. You can still use code snippets for small parts of the project, use any libraries you want to.

HOW TO SUBMIT

You don't! As long as you've registered for the jam by filling out the Google form linked in the last post about this jam, all you have to do is code.

If you want to switch to a different programming language for your submission. First, note down the name of the repl that you've submitted. Then, create a new repl based on your preferred language, and lastly, rename the repl to the initially submitted repl's name.

A better way to deal with the issue is to create a .replit file and modify the run button, click here to learn more about this.


THE END. Good luck and have fun replers!

My methods shall not be revealed. But it is thanksgiving, and I am feeling generous, so let me give you a couple hints. Here they are: plastic explosives, a partridge in a pear tree, egg rolls, and a towel.

@amasad
How did you begin the coding for replit I mean, which latform did you use? And how did it become so popular?

Profile icon
rediar

@TheDrone7 I'm sure you'll figure it out someday...

Profile icon
TheDrone7

That might've been enough clues for me @rediar.

Profile icon
amasad

@Whippingdot All cool replit developers are my friends

Profile icon
amasad

@dhruvkumarrajan The project has a long history. I've talked about it in a few podcasts that you can find on your favorite podcast app, just search my name.

Profile icon
Whippingdot

Ok, sry for @ mentioning you though. And do you actually have your own podcast, let me search it up. @amasad

Profile icon
amasad

@Whippingdot not my own podcast. Just been a guest at other people's podcast. You can also search youtube.

Profile icon
Whippingdot

Ok, thanks for making repl.it! I joined over a month ago but I LOVE it so far. Oh, and @amasad, is there a way you can make #include <windows.h> in C++ available? It doesn't work rn

Profile icon
programmeruser

@Whippingdot no, repl.it uses Linux, you'll have to use Windows to use windows.h.

Profile icon
Whippingdot

Oh yeah, that is why it always says linux in the terminal. @programmeruser

Do I have to finish it to win? Because 2 days is way too short for me.

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@DonkeyRide123 yes and no. You can submit an incomplete project but for it to win against complete ones there has to be that level of goodness despite it being incomplete.

Profile icon
mariocat
Profile icon
Kookiez

@TheDrone7 so a question that's related to @DonkeyRide123's question:
So for example, you created a few tutorials, an editor, etc. But then you decided to create a login system. you weren't done with the login system when the jam ended, but will there be "points taken" because the login system wasn't finished?

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@Kookiez there's no technical point reduction because there's no criteria. It's all about how true you stay to the theme or how much does your submission from a user's point of view is helpful.

Profile icon
Kookiez

@TheDrone7 oh, ok thanks! :)

Profile icon
mariocat

I already failed, I don't have enough time :(

Profile icon
seanlnge

@DonkeyRide123 hey don't worry i just started a few hours ago as well, we still have 12 hours to finish our project and get it up and working, so we have some time

Profile icon
mariocat

@SpicedSpices yeah but, I cant make a website teaching all of the basics of Python in 12 hours.

Profile icon
seanlnge

@DonkeyRide123 ah I understand your point, although I don't think anyone could have even made a website teaching the basics of Python in the given 2 days. Don't let yourself down, you still have a chance to participate :)

Profile icon
mariocat

@SpicedSpices I know, but then I'll have to wait another month for another code jam.

Profile icon
seanlnge

@DonkeyRide123 ah ok lol, well good luck

Profile icon

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@DonkeyRide123 i made https://how-to-python.codingcactus.repl.co in around 5 hours a while ago. It may seem impossible to start, but once you get into it and get into the flow, you realise that it isn't such a mammoth task after all. : )

Profile icon
mariocat

@CodingCactus Yup, you're definitely gonna win

Profile icon
mariocat

@CodingCactus What's the code for that? I promise you, I won't steal it, I just want to know how to make websites like how you did.

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@DonkeyRide123 ? i'm not in this

Profile icon
mariocat
Profile icon
CodingCactus

@DonkeyRide123 you can get the repl url from that url i sent (https://repl.it/@CodingCactus/How-To-Python)

Profile icon
mariocat

@CodingCactus What I meant was what was the code for your website? I want to learn more about HTML

Profile icon
mariocat

@CodingCactus It says the site can't be reached

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@DonkeyRide123 yeah i did a typo

Profile icon
mariocat

@CodingCactus nvm I got it

Profile icon
CodingCactus

@DonkeyRide123 btw the html is really bad, if i were to rewrite it now, I would do it pretty differently, as i did that when i first knew about html

Profile icon
mariocat

@CodingCactus well, the competition ends in 3 minutes, so I think I lost already. I'm not even close to finished

Profile icon
mariocat

@CodingCactus I'm bad at HTML too, its fine

Profile icon
mariocat

@CodingCactus Can you teach me how to make a website that looks like this?

Profile icon
mariocat

Don't you think 2 days is too short?

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@DonkeyRide123 coming up with a plan that can be finished within 2 days is also a part of the challenge.

Profile icon
HarperframeInc

How do you leave the jam?

Profile icon
programmeruser

@HarperframeInc delete the repl that you submitted in the form.

Profile icon
Kookiez

@programmeruser also get on the repl, i created the login and signup templates, do some backend magic because idk anything about backend.

Profile icon
mariocat

I wanted to switch to a different programming language on the repl I'm using called "My First Jam", so I made a new repl, named it "My First Jam", using the programming language I wanted to use but I'm still paranoid that it will use the original one because I already submitted the URL to the repl on the google forum.

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@DonkeyRide123 Yes, you should be fine. Anyways, if you're feeling paranoid, you can just edit the form response.

Profile icon
mariocat

@TheDrone7 Okay thanks.

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@DonkeyRide123 oh and make sure that you deleted your old repl before renaming the new one to what the old one was named.

Profile icon
mariocat

@TheDrone7 If I rename it, will the old URL I put still direct to the same repl I renamed?

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@DonkeyRide123 The URL to access the repl is always https://repl.it/@username/replname so if you rename your repl, the URL to access it also changes.

Profile icon
mariocat

@TheDrone7 Okay, thanks. Also, sorry if I ask too many questions. I've just been working on my repl for a couple hours, and I don't want my code for the Code Jam to just be blank lines just because I picked the wrong programming language.

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@DonkeyRide123 It's all cool. After all, I'm getting paid for this xD.

Profile icon
mariocat

@TheDrone7 thats true. lol

Profile icon
mariocat

@TheDrone7 I think this is my final question, are there any 2nd or 3rd place prizes?

Profile icon
TheDrone7
Profile icon

Profile icon
NoNameByProgram

oh no why did i make a python repl

Profile icon
JBloves27

oof, you can change it, i think @NoNameByProgram

Profile icon
rediar

@NoNameByProgram Yes, you can. Read post carefully for instructions on how too.

Profile icon
mariocat

Just to make sure I changed my programming language, what repl am I
using for the Code Jam? Sorry, I just get paranoid sometimes.

Profile icon
rediar

@DonkeyRide123 The new changed repl should have the same name.... so the url would be the same.

Profile icon
mariocat

@rediar But when I looked at it it didn't have the same url.

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@DonkeyRide123 that's why you have to rename it to what your submitted repl was named.

Profile icon
mariocat

@TheDrone7 So does that mean I'm fine? Because I renamed my new repl to what the original one was.

Profile icon
mariocat

But I'll be sad when it ends, I'll have to wait another month for another Code Jam :(

Umm, i kinda switched my mind, and i cant change the form, but could i work with a team? thx!

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@JBYT27 you should be able to edit your responses. Make sure you are signed in with the right account and it should allow you to edit the response.

Profile icon
TsunamiOrSumth

@JBYT27 i also changed my mind and left a team because everyone was dead, wait, is that allowed?

Profile icon
JBloves27

ok, thank you @TheDrone7

Profile icon
Kookiez
Profile icon
TsunamiOrSumth

ok well @TheDrone7 I dont know if @RyanGardiner1 signed me up to the form or not, but when i saw the topic i thought that i could make it myself, therefore i left the team and filled in the form myself.

Profile icon
TheDrone7

@TsunamiOrSumth yes it is! I decided to leave the forms open so people can make such changes.

Random question does css you've made before count as a library/code snippet?
I assume it does because it's just looks

(I'm asking this way too late lol)
