A few replit VNC questions
Hey there, I have a few VNC questions about replit. These questions are because I am trying to get windows running on replit in a sustainable way. (I already found a way to use Tiny10)
This is about the GUI that spawns up if your application has a GUI
How do they get the OS spawned up itself? Is this just a docker instance, followed by connection to the GUI, or what?
How do they get the VNC connected in the web browser? Which VNC do they use?
How do they make it so your repl has a VNC URL you can connect to? (this is for the noVNC thing) https://docs.replit.com/repls/vnc
If you know about this, please please PLEASE tell me, im super curious
So all repls are docker containers, regardless of whether they have a VNC instance spawned. The VNC they connect using is called noVNC. You can connect to it using <repl>.<user>.repl.co, but need to set a password (see https://blog.replit.com/vnc-passwords for details). using the repl.co domain is the same reason that you can't run a webserver on a VNC repl. Previously, they were unsecured, but that posed some security risks haha
