Weekly Challenge #6
h
TheDrone7

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening/Night to all beautiful replers! 1 week ago, we started weekly challenges 2nd month with the challenges focused on frontend designing!

For the new users who did not know about these, the total score of the 4 challenges held within that month is your score at the end of every month. At the end of every month, the one with the highest score will be awarded free replit hacker plan!

To post your submission, just publish your repl onto apps and make sure to include the tag #weekly{n} and replace {n} with the number of the weekly challenge in the title. For example, for the submission to this weekly challenge, publish the repl that contains your submission on apps and include the tag weekly6.


WEEKLY 5 results

At rank 1, we have @EdwardBentler with an over-the-top (literally) score of 11!

At rank 2, we have @Bookie0 @xfinnbar and @RayhanADev with a score of 10!

At rank 3, we have @CodingCactus @Coder100 and @CoolCoderSJ with a score of 9.

You can check out your own score (if you weren't in the top 3), at the website - https://weekly.thedrone7.repl.co/

And that's it! Now, let's get back to this week's weekly challenge.


Chat App

For this week's challenge, you have to DESIGN a chat app. Since our focus is on the frontend design, the app doesn't have to work.

The minimum requirement is 1 page that has a chat interface that includes the following

  1. Messages that look like they were sent by the user.
  2. Messages that look like they were sent by whoever the user was chatting with.
  3. A message input.
  4. A visible way to send messages.

Again, note that these just need to exist visually and don't necessarily have to work (yes you can get full points with just that) but that doesn't mean you won't get bonus points for making it work ( @Nayoar there ya go).

Some stuff that you can do for bonus points (these are just suggestions, not requirements): -

  1. Make it work
  2. Make links clickable.
  3. Add embeds for links where possible.
  4. Add a little personal touch that makes it unique to you.

Good luck to all the replers, have fun and hack away!

@mechtank If you win, you get a free Hacker plan. If you already have the Hacker plan, you do not need to pay for it for a month.

imoveslowguy

@SohailAji Really!!!! I would like a free hacker plan!!!!!!!!!!

imoveslowguy

@CodingElf66 Woho won??? me?

CodingElf66

@imoveslowguy There are 4 sets of challenges. This is only #6, so we are only halfway through our challenge.

imoveslowguy

@CodingElf66 Okay, because I haven't done any.

imoveslowguy

@CodingElf66 Hello, welcome to my team

CodingElf66
CodingElf66

@imoveslowguy What will we be coding? And, why don't we arrange a time to meet! I'm so excited, hello!

imoveslowguy

@CodingElf66 HI!! We could use zoom! Where do you live. I live in Washinton State, I'm so excited!!!!

CodingElf66

@imoveslowguy I'm not sure about using Zoom. I only use it for special occasions, I don't think my parents would let me. But we can just chat!

CodingElf66

@imoveslowguy Just a note I don't have any chat apps (discord, facebook, social media), etc., because I think too many people are being toxic there and stuff like that, I'm sorry if you want to chat there, but on Replit I'm ok!

CodingElf66

@imoveslowguy What languages do you code? I'm a master at Python (maybe not a master but an intermediator, I need to be humble lol). I'm good at Advanced Concepts in Python and Pygame and other smaller modules. I also know barely any HTML/CSS/Javascript and bits of C++.

CodingElf66

@imoveslowguy My internet was bad so sorry if it took me so long to respond. This tab loaded for 5 minutes or so.

imoveslowguy

Aww! I wish I was number one

fuzzyastrocat

Whoa I actually got 8 points for something I slapped together in an afternoon, hooray

Nice job to everyone else who did a lot better!

RayhanADev

fuzzyastrocat

@RayhanADev Huh, I had a weird feeling about this and seems to be proving true, looks like a lot of people are dropping out (me included)

RayhanADev

@fuzzyastrocat you're right, everyone seems to have other commitments xD.

EdwardBentler

@RayhanADev I'm just as confused as you are, I just came back from a two day vacation to find out I scored and 11/10 somehow.

RayhanADev

@EdwardBentler H is a man of culture, he did it for the memeeees xDD

TheDrone7

@EdwardBentler I kinda trolled with the scores this week. Will fix them next week.

TheDrone7

@RayhanADev there still are points for that the bonus points I suggested are for those who want to do something else.

EdwardBentler

@TheDrone7 kk, I'll take the free exposure tho.

ta12replit

@fuzzyastrocat stop flexing your tape on me

CodingElf66

@RayhanADev Doesn't the acronym 'gg' mean good game? You aren't playing any game lol.

RayhanADev

@CodingElf66 gg is just a congratulatory acronym. If you are saying good job you can say gg :D

CodingElf66

@RayhanADev :D ohh. Thx I didn't know that!

Coder100

Bookie0

Yay! GG to all!

Wonder if I could design a chat app on mobile lol without wifi on a road trip..

Whippingdot

Bro how old are you?? I sometimes think you are under 18 (like now), but then I realize you never state your age and you could be an adult... then I feel depressed cause the truth hits me that no under 18 year old can make a good website :( @Bookie0

Bookie0

I am under 18. Most people here are teens lol, and many people under 18 can indeed make good websites lol @Whippingdot

Whippingdot

LES GOO even i am under 18...I am happy that most people here are under 18, but I still get sad that most of you are going to leave like in a few years at least. When you get past 18, you have more work cut out for you :(. Everyone has to move on in life anyway @Bookie0

Continue making awesome websites! Talk to you again next time!!!

Bookie0

Lol thx, cya @Whippingdot

firefish

no under 18 year old can make a good website :(

@Whippingdot hey i exist

FlaminHotValdez

Lunaticxxd10

when are the results coming out!?

Aivoybia

@Lunaticxxd10 tomorrow

EdwardBentler

Hey @TheDrone7
I'm having issues with submitting my project for Weekly challenge 6, I published it, and if I try to publish an update, it says it's under the tag weekly6, but when I check weekly6, it isn't there, it would be great if you could see if it's there so I'll know if this is an issue on my end, if you can't find it, and I don't have time to fix it, here's the spotlight page: https://replit.com/@EdwardBentler/Weekly-Challenge-6?v=1

Lunaticxxd10

how am i supposed to submit it?

ch1ck3n

@Lunaticxxd10 learn to read

To post your submission, just publish your repl onto apps and make sure to include the tag #weekly{n} and replace {n} with the number of the weekly challenge in the title. For example, for the submission to this weekly challenge, publish the repl that contains your submission on apps and include the tag weekly6.

Lunaticxxd10

thanks lad! I appreciate your help even though you reflected my stupidity upon me
@ch1ck3n

StringentDev

well i just missed this because my RPI was giving me PAIN. Though i have managed to patch my installation of ubuntu today.

JWZ6

I made a submission

Bookie0

For “A visible way to send messages”, does it literally have to say “Send” or “Send message”, or can an icon that generally represents this be used?

TheDrone7

@Bookie0 an icon is fine to it shouldn't be a random icon though it should meaningfully suggest it means send.

Bookie0

Got it, thanks! @TheDrone7

aa2dee2

So a Figma file link counts as an acceptable submission?

TheDrone7

@aa2dee2 no, you need to make the actual webpage, just that it is fine even if it does not work and only has the design elements. You have to turn the Figma design into an actual webpage for submission.

aa2dee2

Right, got it. Thanks, @TheDrone7

ta12replit

i can do this with Scratch but not Python lmho

EdwardBentler

I guess Flex Tape is capable of fixing my bad coding, it's stronger than I thought.
Also, I scored an 8 overall last month, and I beat it on the first challenge this month, good for me?

Whippingdot

Bruh you get extra points for making it work? I am finished

ruiwenge2

can we use a project we made before?

TheDrone7

@ruiwenge2 nope, absolutely not

ruiwenge2
Nayoar

I already decided I can't be asked to do weeklies this month lmao

But imma crush y'all in September

TheDrone7

@Nayoar that is actually very likely considering next month's theme lol.

Nayoar

@TheDrone7 yes, I say that since I know next month's theme

IMayBeMe

@Nayoar doubt I can beat you, but second place is mine

Nayoar

@IMayBeMe fun fact: I have won every month where I did all 4 challenges (that's only 2 months but shut)

Whippingdot

Hey umm wut is next month's theme? Math? If so then I probably won't do good even though I am good at math because I haven't learned many concepts yet. @TheDrone7

Whippingdot

Bruh how good are you - why don't you make projects with C# or something (if you know C++). He is very good at backend or console applications so if you work with him you could cook up something amazing. @Nayoar

GhostKing007

@Nayoar You'll have competition. You're not the only one good at math 😏

TheDrone7

@Nayoar ah yes, discord admeen aboos.

Nayoar

@TheDrone7 you literally told me the theme lmao

or maybe I was looking in the replit site mods channel

TheDrone7

@Nayoar the latter, actually

FlaminHotValdez

@Nayoar We don't beat this lad in math

but we can get 2nd place

FlaminHotValdez

@GhostKing007 one does not simply defeat nayoar in math

just like one does not simply defeat...you know what never mind

GhostKing007

@FlaminHotValdez I like impossible challenges.

FlaminHotValdez

@GhostKing007 like vulcan not saying i- when we say something on discord?

GhostKing007

@FlaminHotValdez That's a different shade of impossible. It's actually really very impossible. We're never going to be able to do that.

VulcanWM

i was reading thru the comments and I see this
I- @FlaminHotValdez

FlaminHotValdez

@VulcanWM You love making our lives difficult don't you

VulcanWM
FlaminHotValdez
