Multiple languages
mrcoxall (4)

I am sure I once say the ability to have multiple tabs with different languages. For example 1 tab for Python and a second for java. I want to use this for example comparing different languages.

Is it possible?

Can you please phrase your question better?

Can I have a Repl.It instance that can have 2 tabs, 1 for each programming language?

@mrcoxall Yes, you can have 2 different tabs with each having a different language on them (if your on chrome at least, idk about other search engines), because chrome handles a different tab as a different program. e.g. you could have one tab freeze and the other will be fine.

@mrcoxall I think you meant it like 2 programs at one page. You could create a new file with the add file button.

@mrcoxall If you're going to do what Harperframeinc said, with separate files for separate languages but in the same repl/project, you should use a polygott repl so you can run both of them.
Polygott currently isn't in the language list.
You can create one by going to

@SamuelMueller2 it should redirect you to a new repl editor page with a random name
