Monthly repls - August 2020
Hey there replers, we made it through yet another month (and a big jam too whew) so it is time again for the MONTHLY REPLS. For those who do not know what these are, these are the repl talk posts that were made in the past 1 month and are really interesting and really worth checking out.
So, here we go!
This month, we got a lot of games, so lets get started with those first.
And that wraps it up for the games. Next up, people made compilers for the language BrainF in various languages. @AmazingMech2418 wrote a compiler in NodeJS and Java while @pbear wrote an interpreter in C++.
For those who want to learn a new language, a great choice is the D Lang which you can learn from this great tutorial by @nk1wc.
Large calculations can take a while, learn how to optimize your code using memorization in this tutorial by @DynamicSquid.
Bash is a very frequently observed shell language. It's used by pretty much all UNIX based shells and we use it heavily on repl.it as well (specially on our infamous jobs page). @CodeLongAndPros wrote this tutorial for everyone to learn the basics of this insanely useful language. They also wrote a tutorial on how to use QEMU.
And as I always say that's definitely not all for this month. As usual, there's a lot of other great posts that did not make it here, be sure to put them in the comments section for others to check out. And be sure to see it anyways in case someone else has left one for you to check out.
And finally now, that's all for this month. See ya all next month with another set of monthly highlights.
Please don't treat these like a competition. As I said, there are many more posts worth checking out. These are just my personal favorites.
Ayy happy to see repl.email mentioned (along with my notes app). Just to make it clear, its a regular email service. You can email anyone, but you have to have a repl.it account to sign up.
Also, could you please add @rafrafraf as we work together on repl.email (he really improved the frontend)
