How do i prevent people from seeing my code?

I really don't want people to see my code, just run it.

How do I do that? Do I need a "hacker" account? I just can't figure this out....

thank you! :)

Use a local ide, problem solved. Other solution, overly complicate your code so no one can understand it. Last solution, don’t run production programs on replit, it’s designed to be something like a mix of collaboration and GitHub.

@IMayBeMe i think i will go with the lattermost suggestion. especially since this site is painfully slow, and also their customer service seems to be non-existent.

i misunderstood what it was about and was confused by some of their advertising copy (dare I call it hype)

@CompteOfficiel yeah I think that’s the best option as I personally use replit more for learning or when I’m too lazy to set up an ide compared to writing actual production code. As for the customer service, it’s probably because they are a small company with around only 20 employees

@IMayBeMe This will be my last time on the site anytime soon, just to reply to this. It isn't exactly 'production code'! It takes a single line of text input and outputs a simple code. That is all it does. There isn't even any files being written.

I just thought this might work to avoid the complexities of setting up web hosting for such a trivial little thing.

I appreciate your input.

@CompteOfficiel I fear that your issue is that you don't quite understand the intent of this site. The site has a brilliant file system and works exactly as intended with compilers for many languages. You will never be able to find a site that has the capabilities of an OS.
