Monthly Tutorials!
DynamicSquid (5027)

Hi!

As you know, Apps is rolling out, so instead of monthly highlights, we'll have monthly tutorials!

And we have some epic tutorials in June!

Yes ik I'm 6 days late but pretend I'm not

Let's get started!


Website Improvements

Staring off with web dev, want to improve your website? Well @Bookie0 made an really indepth tutorial on how to do so! This tutorial gives a bunch of tips and tricks to make your website stand out from the rest. And it only uses HTML and CSS, nothing too complicated!

Tutorial

Django Mango Blog

Do you know Django? It rhymes with mango. And have you ever wanted to create your own blog? Well this awesome indepth tutorial by @DillonB07 walks you through all the steps in creating one!

I would definitely recommend checking it out for all the web devs out there looking to up their skills :)

Tutorial

Flask

Now you might be thinking, I hate mangos, but I still like web dev with Python. Well, look no further than this beginner Flask tutorial by @ruiwenge2! It teaches you about Flask, a Python library that can aid with web dev!

Tutorial

Discord Bot

Well maybe web dev isn't your thing, but you still like Python! Then making a Discord bot would be perfect for you! And luckily, both @CoolCoderSJ and @InvisibleOne made two very epic tutorials on how you can make your very own Discord bot in Python!

CoolCoder's Tutorial
InvisibleOne's Tutorial

Python Text

Well maybe discord bots isn't your thing, but you still like Python, especially making console stuff. Well luckily for you @SilvermoonCat made a great beginner tutorial with some neat tips and tricks on how you can brighten up your console text!

Tutorial

Elixir

Moving away from Python, have you every wanted to learn Elixir? But all the tutorials out there are choppy and inconsistant? Well look no further as @aa2dee2 made an awesome 2 part series on Elixir!

If you're looking to learn an exiting new language, these tutorials would be perfect for you!

Part 2

Operating Squid System and BMP Images

Now, what if you're an ambitious low level dev, wanting to make a project in C/Assembly. Well @MocaCDeveloper created an epic tutorial for just that! It walks you through all the steps in creating your own OS!

I would diffidently recommend this to anyone that knows C/Assembly, and is willing to improve their skills!

i kinda disagree with your first statement:
"As you know, Apps is replacing Share"
this is somewhat false.
the community, to my knowledge, does not like this change one bit. as @codingjlu made a post just recently, which got 40 upvotes, and prompted amasad to roll back the apps feature. There have also been multiple petitions to change this feature.
we, or at least i, believe that if apps is rolled out in its current form, it will make, at the very least, less people spend a lot of time creating games. Why? because they want updoots, which are useless internet points but a god flex
anyways yeah
pls edit that, cus amadsad did say he was stopping the rollout of the apps feature, at least temporarily

DynamicSquid (5027)

@plscodeinjava What I meant was that the majority of repls are now posted to Apps.

CodingCactus (4337)

@plscodeinjava hi the share board is being replaced with apps, it's just they need to get it right first before they replace it.

codingjlu (484)

@plscodeinjava you mean 60 votes and 90+ petitions lol

CodingCactus (4337)

@codingjlu would you like to let me know which words you are struggling with in my sentence and I can explain what they mean for you

CodingCactus (4337)

@plscodeinjava in it's current state, yes it could be argued that Apps is not as good a place to share your repls as Repl Talk, BUT once they get it right in terms of the trending algorithm and all the planed features, it has massive potential to be so much more than the Repl Talk share board.

sojs (367)

I 100% agree. share is waaaaayy better than apps (though apps styling is cool)
@plscodeinjava

ThatGhost (4)

@codingjlu basically what he is saying is (before apps) if you wanted to advertise your repl, you would use the share feature in talk, kinda like what you did with your petition. He is saying that not the entire talk feature would be replaced, just the share part, as there is no need for it with apps.

Highwayman (1505)

ohhhh wait wait so apps is NOT replacing repltalk, just specifically the share board? Well... that's not so bad really... @plscodeinjava

plscodeinjava (391)

@Highwayman
NO ITS HORRIBLE
they ARE GONNA REMOVE UPVOTES
NOOOOOOOOO

Highwayman (1505)

But it would be worst if they cut off all communication. @plscodeinjava

elipie (355)

@plscodeinjava upvotes cause problems. If you have been here for a while you would notice that.

plscodeinjava (391)

@elipie
ivebeen here for yearslmao

elipie (355)

@plscodeinjava have you changed your name, because i havent seen you before?

RayhanADev (2621)

@plscodeinjava

There are two (main) reasons of support behind ReplTalk: Upvotes and Communication. Upvotes (and cycles in lieu) are going to be gone no matter what but they are working on improving communication in Apps. For now I side with ReplTalk albiet with a few changes however I'm open to Apps if they can actually understand how being social works.

plscodeinjava (391)

@RayhanADev
ur kidding
they are actually going to remove upvotes permanently???? ugh

FlaminHotValdez (716)

EWWWWWWW APPS

jesus christ you're saying that 60+ of us signed that petition for nothing? :(

DynamicSquid (5027)

@FlaminHotValdez What I meant was that the majority of repls are now posted to Apps. I'm not trying to advocate for Apps or Share in any way smh

GhostKing007 (143)

@DynamicSquid So, are the monthly repls/tutorials going to turn into monthly apps? I hope not...

Also, this is off-topic, but when will the results for Weekly #1 be posted?

DynamicSquid (5027)

@GhostKing007 It's just gonna be Monthly Tutorials for now. Monthly Apps doesn't sound like a good idea.

And results for Weekly #1 will be posted when the next challenge starts - so Friday morning when I wake up :)

plscodeinjava (391)

@FlaminHotValdez
dude thanks so much for saying this
u get an upvote

Whippingdot (681)

It will be weekly apps when the repl talk 'share' section goes away right? @DynamicSquid

Whippingdot (681)

why is everyone bullying @DynamicSquid, even you bro @FlaminHotValdez

FlaminHotValdez (716)

@Whippingdot We're not bullying him, we are protesting against apps

Whippingdot (681)

he didn't know that amasad replied that...or even if he did its ok. don't bully him he and @TheDrone7 are awesome... @FlaminHotValdez

TheDrone7 (1940)

@plscodeinjava @FlaminHotValdez the whole point of apps is to be a better platform for sharing what you coded than repl talk. Now obviously, repl talk has been around for a while and has matured a lot over the years and apps was just recently released. For now, repl talk still is the better platform, yes. But, be patient and let apps mature with time too. It's difficult switching to something new but when you eventually get used to it, it's creators get more motivated to make it better than anything you've ever used.

plscodeinjava (391)

@TheDrone7
... alright sure
BUT ADD UPVOTING PLEASEEEE

Gamedevmike415 (0)

@FlaminHotValdez For the most part petitions in general are useless. Replit may not care to much, until many people start deleting their accounts.

AnvayMathur1 (34)

@Gamedevmike415 they do care. that's why we like replit.

SnowpawValdez (0)

@FlaminHotValdez I think something's wrong with ur name🤔🤔🤔

FlaminHotValdez (716)

@SnowpawValdez Relax. There are multiple people named Valdez.

ruiwenge2 (1209)

Yay! My first time!

codingjlu (484)

@ruiwenge2 lol idk why my css tutorial didn't get on from a long time ago

aa2dee2 (12)

Super to see my tutorials here!
Here's another one Functional Programming: Pascal Triangle in Elixir

DillonB07 (29)

Thanks for posting my tutorial!

kannibalistic (109)

=( that dosent affect me

IMayBeMe (552)

Learn programming tutorial? Anyways great job everyone and super glad that tutorials finally get featured.

DynamicSquid (5027)

@IMayBeMe Learn programming tutorial?

DynamicSquid (5027)

@IMayBeMe Oh, that was a month ago so that's probably why I didn't see it. But actually for those tutorials that don't teach a specific programming concept, I'm planning to do something with those in the future :)

Davi21 (1)

@plscodeinjava I do not understand what your trying to say can you please explain it better?

GabrielHui1 (0)

why do you need to type these boring things all the time?

IMayBeMe (552)

@GabrielHui1 you should appreciate the work squid puts in every month to select these tutorials and post them nicely for us. It might be boring to you but an overwhelming majority of the repl talk community enjoys these posts and looks forward to them.

Gellehaiak (0)

thank for the tutorials

CyberHacker101 (136)

oooh nooooice

idk why but i always think that every link on here is linked to a rickroll

HackermonDev (2076)

Does this mean the share board is going to be removed from repl-talk?

DynamicSquid (5027)

@HackermonDev We don't know yet. Currently, Replit paused any efforts to replace Share with Apps due to some negative feedback over Apps. Right now I think they're still sorting through all the feedback to decide what to do next.

I can go way more indepth about this, but let's keep this to monthly tutorials only :) You can DM me (if you have Discord) if you want to know more.

Whippingdot (681)

ELIXIR WOOOOOHOOOO
i gave up on learning it cause they were no tutorials and i have no need to go back cause it doesn't seem to be getting hype or popularity and so if i put that in my resume they might just spit on me...

SilvermoonCat (458)

Aieeee how did I make it ?!?!?
Noice post I appreciate it now I’m going to go check them out :D

lol “I hate mangos”
I love mangos

Bookie0 (6407)

Ooo I'm up there, thanks! Happy that my work paid off! :D

DynamicSquid (5027)

@Bookie0 You always write super long tutorials lol!

ch1ck3n (2388)

kinda off topic but

I LOVE YOU WHOEVER MADE THAT
AAAA

Whippingdot (681)

@angrydoge are you still active brah?

angrydoge (481)

I'm not really on anymore, but if I had something to code I probably would. Wanna collab on sumth @Whippingdot?

Whippingdot (681)

yes pls...but i just started focusing on learning coding rather than practicing it. Lets see - today I just finished learning css and i am almost done with js... I gotta start advanced C++ soon, and start C# and Nodejs too soon. If you want to create a python or basic c++ program, I'm alright @angrydoge
