Anti-cheating tools

Hey developers: Just a quick question. I'm testing out your service as a learning tool for my class starting February. Would it be possible at some point to implement some basic features that would help me identify duplicate solutions or plagiarism (similar to turnitin.com) submitted by students in my class? As a teacher I would pay for this feature... Thanks.

Write a python program to print numbers as 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30 using FOR loop.

Assuming you're having students turn in text-based files to a folder, I could probably write some script (in python3) you could run on the folder to check if there are any pairs of files that are the same or very similar.

Well that's awfully nice of you! Thanks mate. If I collect files, that could help. Might have to. But for now I'm not planning on having them submit files, but rather use the "teacher features" they have already implemented for class administration.

@HappyFakeboulde So great! Thanks for taking the time to do this! I'll definitely use it.

@HappyFakeboulde Hi thanks for doing this, is there a way I can use it with assignment submissions on a repl.it classroom?
the assignments are unite tested.

@randah I wouldn't know how, as I haven't used repl.it classroom much, but maybe there's a way to download the submissions.
