@PixiGem That's great! Please invite me to the repl. I found this by searching "posting website" on talk, because I was looking for a repl I could join.

Profile icon
PixiGem

@SwellCoding ooOOOooooOOhhhhh
nice
BTW im not making that on replit;
im making it on VScode and then i will host using heroku
um so, if u wanna help me, then I should probably make a GitHub repo so that u can collab

Profile icon
SwellCoding

@PixiGem ok. there is an issue though. My school has blocked .herokuapp.com urls, so do you think we could host on glitch instead? I'm good with the Github repo idea tho. I can use vscode.dev to edit as well.

Profile icon
PixiGem

@SwellCoding oh ok
but I shud a catch up a really quick tutorial on YT how to use glitch

and why don't u use ur own Personal Computer rather than that pesky school computer, homie?

Profile icon
PixiGem

@SwellCoding BTW im kinda amateur using GitHub
I'll sweat hard learning more of it

Profile icon
SwellCoding

@PixiGem Behold my plight, dear friend, that I am starved of any PC. I only have my chromebook. Linux disabled. Dev mode off. So yeah, that's why. I mostly use cloud based softwares like replit and github, and thats fine for me currently. And glitch shouldn't be too hard to use.

@PixiGem Im amateur too dont worry. I find the UI and terminology confusing.

@SwellCoding yo there r multiple proxies u can use to unblock it. I got one from GitHub a while back (https://tacoproxy-eijghejigr.ekstra.repl.co/)

@Cloovy schools are dumb
I hacked my art and craft teacher's computer so that she doesn't take up the class, and as planned, the class got canceled, and my math teacher showed up :)

I liek mats :)

@SwellCoding swell coding, tomorrow and 3:00 pm
I'll create the repo and start coding (I will invite you and Cloovy to that repository if you guys tell ur GITHUB username)

and....
our social network is (I haven't thought of type of social network I wanna create, here are examples) -

Duckify: A normal social media like Twitter (there are quacks instead of tweets lol)

OR

Kawaii: A platform where people can post cute pet videos, images, or other cute videos

OR

Diorite. : A blog where people can post tutorials or join communities and other stuff

@PixiGem https://replit.com/@Cloovy/Email-spammer-1#main.py bomb their email lol. Also to use it just make 3 .env variables. One named, “Pass”, one named, “Sender”, and one named “Reciever”. The rest is self explanatory.

@Cloovy lmao i hate my art teacher, I'll surely do that

Profile icon
PixiGem

@Cloovy what is PASS for

Profile icon
SwellCoding

@PixiGem My github is @F3l1ne. WHich time zone are you i, jusst so I can know if we have the same 3pm.

Profile icon
SwellCoding

@PixiGem Yes good idea.

Profile icon
SwellCoding

@SwellCoding I think duckify is too close to twitter, so we should add an element of coding like code snippets.

Profile icon
Cloovy

@PixiGem It is for ur email’s password. This is so that it can log in and send the emails to whoever u want

If u don’t trust it just make an alt acc for the test.

Profile icon
PixiGem

@SwellCoding asian time zone.
i know it is not a thing, but I just don't want to reveal my country

@Cloovy Hi there, I finished the project, but, we need to pay for the database, the database is only free until development. my dad said it is too expensive. So I cant host the project :(

instead what if we make a whatsapp clone, im working on, I'll notify you in a week :)

Profile icon

@PixiGem How about, “Camora”? Like, a site/app made for posting shorts and/or just vids in general?

Profile icon
PixiGem

@Cloovy hmmmmmm.................
no coz youtube is overrated and I dont want a shorts app/site lol
I don't want it to be the 3rd tiktok

Profile icon
PixiGem

@Cloovy and also, I want to remove Diorite from the list because who wants to read long boring blog posts?

comments will be full of TL;DR

Profile icon
SwellCoding

@PixiGem What do you mean by social networking? Are wo gonna make these?

Profile icon
Cloovy

@PixiGem aight how about, “Project SCAC”, which stands for, “Socializing, Chatting And Coding”? (Coding could also be Community)

Profile icon
SwellCoding

@Cloovy Good idea, but I don't think we should call it scac.
community could be included in socialising, so I think coding would be good. I think it should be like a mix of stackoverflow, discord and reddit. i tried to create a project called hackpod like this, but I failed. shall we call it hackpod(we dont have to associate it with my original project)?

@Cloovy chap, the main idea of me creating this is because I wanna be a millionaire before I'm 20

We at least need 10,000 daily users so that we can all earn 100 dollars each a month.
The better the site gets, more people will join.
if more people join, more people will view or maybe click on the ads in the website. I think u guys got the point;
We advertise to earn money, for that, we need more users.
And according to some fancy calculation I did from the analytics,
there are currently 50 million people who know to code, so making a site completely or half related to code, may make those 40 year old moms confused and make them leave the site

And of course, Im planning to make a youtube channel to advertise our site

And don't worry, I found out a nodejs module which allows you to add markdown in a or field

Im ready to do anything to become a millionaire (yes, I am a 12 year old kid with big dreams)

@PixiGem Sorry for late response.

I don’t care about pay since I don’t have a card or bank acc to put onto my paypal. But ok lol

Profile icon
Cloovy

@PixiGem I’m 13 lol

Profile icon
PixiGem

@Cloovy homie, you're basically older than me!
I'm 12, but some say im 11, and I don't really care.

and yeah, I'm making progress on Duckify everyday
I've completed coding the database, but the sad news is EXAMS

im not scared of maths, science, or physics, I did algebra when I was 5 years old, but the real THINGY is social sciences, who does love by-hearting the entire history book and learning politics? Same with English.

Posting app?! Whats that

Profile icon
PixiGem

@QuantumCodes it is like Fb/insta/twit you post something, everyone can see, ex replit bruh

Profile icon
QuantumCodes

@PixiGem replit itself has posted a twitter type social media tutorial in python. What if you compare that to js equivalents?

Profile icon
PixiGem

@QuantumCodes that's not possible buddy... repldb in python is way more different than nodejs

it's literally the same db lol @PixiGem

Profile icon
PixiGem

@Coder100 bruh but it is quite different, the methods are same BTW. I mean not the db, but the code.

Profile icon
QuantumCodes

@PixiGem hey! Here are the equivalents of python and js https://docs.replit.com/hosting/database-faq and here is the twitter on replit(repltweet) https://replit-py.readthedocs.io/en/latest/web_tutorial.html#building-repltweet .. i think both should be the same though... i dont know js tho...
