Introducing Repl.it offline!
Our most requested feature has come: an offline IDE!

⏱ High response time (~14 days)
No dark mode. It's seriously just paper!😒
Check it out!
When I first saw this post, I was suspicious of what it could do. However, I decided to try it out, thinking what could go wrong? I mailed them a simple python script
print('hello world!') and waited. Quite a while later, I received a piece of paper with the following on it.
Ran in 69.420 weeks Output: Stop Wasting our time!!!
It was at this moment that I realized that repl.it wasn't lying. This is truly a breakthrough in technology. 10/10
Wait, is this real? I honestly thought at first that it would just be a downloaded version of Repl.it that doesn't use Internet... However, with this, all that is needed now is a neural network (or whatever else you want to use) handwriting reading AI that reads handwriting from scanned paper to then figure out what the code is and then run it and print out the results to be mailed. Though on the jobs page, there actually is one titled "human compiler" (well "human-compiler.txt" since it is based on the Linux terminal apparently).
missed opportunity to just open google docs offline
