Share your Always On repls

Just announced Always On! From the blog:

Always On repls can be pretty useful for a variety of programs and unlock many long-requested features. The most obvious and commonly requested is for web servers. If you're tired of waiting for your webserver to wake up every time you visit, Always On is a great way to fix that. But Always On isn't just for web repls, regular old repls work too! If you have a cron job you'd like to run on a schedule, Always On makes it super easy. Discord bots, Slack bots, and other chat bots with a persistent outbound connection are another great use for Always On. And if you have a workload that's taking a long time (like say scraping a site), you can Always On the repl and go one with your life.

I'm curious what other use-cases have people found for it? Share your repls below and tell us how you're using it.

When I turn on always-on, then I can't turn it off. When I do, it later automatically turns it back on or has a error

I had the same problem, the way I fixed it was turn it off, and then quickly leave the repl, but this problem needs to be addressed.

They should add something to tell you what Repls are "always on," I believe that was mentioned from the very beginning.

Profile icon
Codemonkey51

They should add like a special folder that virtually contains all always on repls (virtually as in they are listed there but don't exist in that "folder")

@xxpertHacker

@Codemonkey51
Are you suggesting that they add that, or is that what there already is?

@Codemonkey51

I have a few always-on repls

One that scrapes the SEC website looking for a certain type of form.
The other scrapes yahoo finance for various SPAC merger articles.

These forms/articles usually come out at like 3-5 AM pst so it's useful having them going 24/7.

You can see it in action here.

I don't have hacker but it would be useful for calculating algebra questions.

@HarperframeInc
Why? you're inputs can only happen when the tab is open how would you really make it automated?

Profile icon
techpixel

@MythEdits
Input them in, leave them always on, wait for them to calculate (because repl power is low), log them to a file, and done!

What if you guys used a serverless system for the free plan or in general. That'd allow you to decrease overhead and give people a chance to learn serverless as well.

Hmm... I just compile my web servers, setup the .replit to just directly run the binary, and enjoy the instant startup times.

How do you make an always-on repl?

Profile icon

@BananaJellyfish
It's a hacker plan feature. If you have it, it's under the settings on a Repl.
