Developer Spotlights : Replish > replit desktop!
Good morning/evening replers, hope you all are safe and doing fine!
Today we have one more developer spotlight featuring one of the most epic community members - @leon332157
@leon332157's name is Leon, he is 17 and lives in Belmont, MA. He was lucky enough to meet Amjad back in 2019.
Leon wanted his spotlight to have points instead of paragraphs so beware.
- He wanted to learn about programming because he loved computers since he was little.
- One day he came across the book "Programming with Python" in 2015.
- Back then, nodejs wasn't really popular so the easiest language to get started with was Python.
- He came across replit in about 2018 when he was looking for an online IDE.
- To him, it was a great tool to set up environments that take a lot of effort to set up on a desktop/laptop.
- He thinks replit still has a lot of potentials to be improved on. He once said, "I don't use replit daily, but I strive to improve it through my effort".
Some of @leon332157's projects are
His biggest personal project so far. It's a desktop app for replit which brings many enhancements and features to the website. However, replit being an in-browser IDE, the desktop app just isn't a big enough appeal for everyone.
He is working on another project called replish. Which is a hybrid HTTP/ssh server and should eventually allow you to use replit as a development environment for VScode. Contact him on the Replit Discord(leon332157#6808) or GitHub if you are interested in contributing!
Besides working with code, I also enjoy playing games and I'm also a computer hardware enthusiast.
A quote from Leon:
I believe that we are living in the matrix, do you?
