Repl.it Mobile App MVP
We did it! 10 days ago I created a post asking if people were interested in a mobile app for Repl.it. The answer in general was yes, and I set out to build the best possible thing I could.
And I just released the MVP of the app. Here are some supported features:
- Creating and deleting repls and files 📂
- Both dark mode and light mode 🌚
- Integrated code editor with syntax highlighting 💻
- Rich editor preferences ⚙
- Works on both Android and iOS 📱
And I'm planning on adding much more, including Repl Talk support. I couldn't have done this without the help of all the amazing testers on our Discord server as well as support from Repl.it team members. This was also a fun experience learning React Native.
Q: Where can I download it?
A: You can download the Android app here. iOS is supported but I don't currently have a release.
Q: What about running repls?
A: Although you can view web repls, other types of repls are not currently supported. Repl.it recently moved to an API based on protocol buffers and due to several concerns of theirs we may have to wait until June.
Q: What the heck is an MVP?
A: MVP stands for "minimum viable product." According to Wikipedia, it is "a product with just enough features to satisfy early customers, and to provide feedback for future product development."
Q: What did you build it with?
A: I used React Native as well as many other open-source projects including React Native Paper. I really appreciate all the work the maintainers of these projects put in that helped make Repl.it Mobile so much better.

Guys, I can't download the file. It redirects me to that error XML page that says:
This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
No one can guarantee that our mobile app will succeed after its launch in the market, but this does not mean that we do not have the tools to test, evaluate and reflect on our project before its official launch to optimize our work. Chances of success. From this perspective, one of the most commonly used testing tools in our hands as mobile app developers is the MVP, the minimum viable product. With an MVP, you can test your idea and the features of your app to see how your audience responds to it, how they perceive it, and if and how you can improve the project before launching. To be honest, I liked the new Vidmate app. I even downloaded it from https://www.apkdojo.com/vidmate to analyze it.
What to expect from it? Only broken error page. As replit's broken even on its mobile webpage... Huh... Anyways - people saying good in comments are just ip-whitelisted people on developer's discord. Maybe even paid... (U know? I think that download page is a virus ;) )
Is it still out??
I literally just came here to the forum/community side looking to see if there was a mobile app (or to request one). Glad I found this and I'll be giving it a shot. Thanks!
Just wondering what progress you're making. Did you get any help on the web logging?
Also, I am using Android v6, and the code editor doesn't function properly. Hoping you can fix that. Thanks!
@cats_ur_cool77 I still haven't figured out the web logging - I posted on StackOverflow and got no answers. It seems to be a pretty unique problem.
Would you mind telling me exactly what part of the code editor isn't functioning and how? I would really appreciate it if you could join the Discord server to help me debug it. Thanks for the report!
I'm meeting with Amjad over Google Hangouts today and then will get back to the previous rapid development.
