Monthly Repls - February 2021

TheDrone7 (1780)

Hey there replers, we back at it again! Here are this month's MONTHLY REPLS! For those who do not know what these are, these are the repl talk posts that were made during the last month, i.e. the second month of this new year - February 2021, and are really interesting and really worth checking out.

By the way, this month, we had almost 7000 posts created in total! Be sure to share any other interesting posts in the comments.

Anyways, here we go!


Starting off the monthly repls is @CodingCactus's recreation of one of our deprecated features - CLASSROOMS!

Last month, @frissyn created Reflux - a tool to customize the repl.it website with your own colors. This month, @CoolCoderSJ created Reflux Marketplace - a website where you can share your own Reflux themes and view the ones created by others with hopes of finding the perfect theme for you.

Pushing CSS animation to their limits, @KobeFF has created animated Solar System (without any JS at all)!

The CEO man of repl.it accidentally built a chat app and our community created various clients for it. One of the most popular clients for it was the one created by @Codemonkey51.

@littlewhinging created a fun cannon game. Now go shoot stuff.

Frionx programming language by @frionx was also created this month. It is an interpreted language and fully functional.

Another fun game created recently was Defuse the bomb by @InvisibleOne

@adrenallen developed a DB ORM for Replit DB in Node.js

@Dart created Gogl Search - a command-line search engine with a really nice UI.

@ParrotDev built PyChat - a command-line chat app with a very clear and colorful UI.

@Muhammad_SJC took what was originally created by @rafrafraf to another level by recreating iOS on the web with 2 fully working apps, one of the two being a maps app!

@LeviathanCoding made CodeCrystals - their very own BEAUTIFUL forums website.

@Coder100 created a Repl.it clone - Whaleboat. Just one problem though - IT HAS NO DARK THEME!

GMail is fine and all but have you given @Nava10Y's N Mail? Fully written in PHP, it's an absolutely BEAUTIFUL E-Mail service.

A lot of us have played skribble.io but WHAT IF YOU HAD TO DRAW IN 3D?? Check out @theohalpern's Buildonary.live to experience how fun that can be!

@coder400 developed GameFly.js - a JS Library to develop your own web-based games.

@MarcusWeinberger alongside @rafrafraf built repldm - A way to communicate with your fellow replers right here on replit!

@CodeLongAndPros teaches the basics of findutils - tools to search for files and more in UNIX-Based systems.

Even though there are a lot of python tutorials on repl talk and a lot more out there on the internet but @IntellectualGuy's Python tutorial's simplicity and details just hit different.

One of the most knows uses of Flask (python library) is making webapps but DID YOU KNOW - you can use it in desktops apps too!. Check out this tutorial to learn how!


Finally, any constructive feedback is appreciated! And be sure to see the comments section just in case someone else has left one for you to check out.

And finally now, that's all for this month. See you all next month with another set of monthly highlights.

Hey, I've been banned from the discord server for around 5 months now. I've changed a lot since then and was wondering if I could be unbanned. At that time I had no peace in my life, but I've learned to accept myself and since then the way I view the world has changed.

@BobTheTomatoPie Wear the badge of being banned with pride.

BobTheTomatoPie (3346)

are you trying to say I should be who I was when I was banned? I was going through a hard time and I'm not the person I was then, so why should I wear my past self with pride if I have changed, instead I will be real with myself @dimapolkjui

Baconman321 (1061)

@BobTheTomatoPie Deep words.

I got banned from a game for "exploiting", but IDK da heck why they thought I was exploiting (my computer crashes a lot). The stress of being banned alone, I can't imagine how it feels to actually have a reason for being banned.

But now you are healed and are all better, so go forth and have an adventure!

@dimapolkjui i used to have an old repl.it account but it was banned when i accidentaly posted hahahahahahaha and i was banned for life because it was 'spam' but i didnt mean to post it

TheDrone7 (1780)

@SuigamiMitsokeL y'know I am getting notifications in E-Mails for every single one of your comments lol.

TheDrone7 (1780)

@SuigamiMitsokeL And I HAVE HAD 151 NOTIFICATIONS IN THE LAST 24 HOURS

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

you are? But I don’t ping you @TheDrone7

TheDrone7 (1780)

@SuigamiMitsokeL I created the post. I get notifs for all comments lol

TheDrone7 (1780)

@SuigamiMitsokeL It's not a problem just asking you to please keep the comments to a minimum amount as a personal favor for me.

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

How could I keep comments to minimum when I love talking @TheDrone7

TheDrone7 (1780)

@SuigamiMitsokeL Which is a nice thing, I am just saying. Try to keep the number of comments at a minimum. Like I saw you sent 3-4 comments each containing 2-3 words instead of one comment with one long paragraph.

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

That means work 🤨@TheDrone7

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

I don’t like work 🙄@TheDrone7

TheDrone7 (1780)

@SuigamiMitsokeL again, it's not really a problem but I would appreciate it if you could do it.

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

Turn off the notifs in account @TheDrone7

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

Smarty 😬@TheDrone7

TheDrone7 (1780)

@SuigamiMitsokeL I need to keep them enabled to be able to moderate efficiently.

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

Wait you run this place 😱 @TheDrone7

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

Wait how many notifs does katyadee get she posted and there are zillions of comments @TheDrone7

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

OMG 😳 MY UPVOTES WENT UP 😱 I HAVE A SECRET ADMIRER @tussiez

TheDrone7 (1780)

@SuigamiMitsokeL none, she has probably turned off her email notifs since she stopped working for repl.it

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

She stopped oh that explains @TheDrone7

Whippingdot (573)

gUyS PLEASE STOP I GOT 50 NOTIFS @SuigamiMitsokeL. I know it isn't ur fault @TheDrone7 but hmmmm maybe you can do something about this threaten them muhahahaha like ask them to stop? They have been asking everywhere for someone to gmail them and stuff and that is creepy. I have a feeling this is no kid...

ParrotDev (5)

TheDrone7 (1780)

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

Hey I go by Suigami Mitsoke online. I’m open for friendships. My gmail is [email protected] I’m a bit of a hacker. I just hack securly and try to free surf the internet at school. Amongst other hacks. Which are not so good. I do Google hangouts and I have this docs. With a couple of friends. I have a YouTube channel with no content. I’m currently not able to access discord. And I can only do school hours or nights. Thx to my parents taking my phone and school iPad. Let me know if ya wanna chat. It be a honor to be your friend. Have a great day. Best of wishes!!!!
Peace out Love Suigami

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

UR UPVOTES YOU ARE A GOD 😇 OMG YOU ACTUALLY TALKED TO ME WITH MY LOW UPVOTES 😱 YOU ARE SO NICE YOU TREAT EVERYONE LIKE A EQUAL you don’t flex your upvotes or anything you are so cool 😎 can we be friends? 😚@Coder100

Whippingdot (573)

bruh stop talking about upvotes and cycles like that. No-one is above anyone, we are all equal on this platform. He may make better programs than some of us, but the cycles don't always come from effort, and people often see him and upvote immidiately. @SuigamiMitsokeL

SuigamiMitsokeL (140)

It’s just a joke man chill @Whippingdot

TheDrone7 (1780)

@RohilPatel most likely his alt but at least he's not using it for cycle farming.

Coder100 (17133)

nooo he is not mine
@coder400 you go tell them @TheDrone7

coder400 (24)

im not his alt, i promise @Coder100

CoolCoderSJ (509)

O wowowowowow i finally made it

IntellectualGuy (721)

@CoolCoderSJ Dude your project was so cool, I like the monokai on the best, the text is just a bit hard to see.

CoolCoderSJ (509)

@IntellectualGuy thanks!

Just to note, the monokai was made by @mat1 with his original system, but i ported them to reflux.

CoolCoderSJ (509)

@IntellectualGuy i just wished that people would use it because there's no point if no one's going to submit a theme...

IntellectualGuy (721)

@CoolCoderSJ I would create a theme, I just don't know how to make one.

CoolCoderSJ (509)

@IntellectualGuy a theme generator is in the works, ill ping you when its done

Whippingdot (573)

the theme editor is broken lul @CoolCoderSJ

CoolCoderSJ (509)

@Whippingdot wdym seems to work fine for me, your theme name or desc just cant have quotes unfortunately. a porblem with escaping

Whippingdot (573)

ok, also I was saying this cause remember when I tried inputting my own theme... @CoolCoderSJ

CoolCoderSJ (509)

@Whippingdot yes, ur theme had a ' in it, and our server thought u were trying to inject js

so it paniked

LeviathanCoding (388)

Thank you for listing my project on the list!!

TheDrone7 (1780)

@LeviathanCoding Thank you for creating an awesome project.

LeviathanCoding (388)

@TheDrone7 , It's great to make something to help others. Thanks again! :)

Bookie0 (6031)

Whee! You're great on time!

Now go shoot stuff.

and uh not really the thing I'd be promoting but okay..

TheDrone7 (1780)

@Bookie0 stuff is non living only and mostly virtual.

Muhammad_SJC (149)

I just added my new post for the IOS online, now with a working messaging app!

IntellectualGuy (721)

Glad to be on the monthly repls for the first, and also @RhinoRunner helped me with the tutorial
