Why do we call projects repls if replit is pronounced rep lit?
So I was just thinking a realized this:
Replit is pronounced rep lit
We call projects repls
I used to pronounce replit like repl it, but now that I learned how replit is pronounced, calling projects repls seems weird.
If you read the blog post (https://blog.replit.com/dotcom) you will find out that it is actually based off of the "read-eval-print loop". They officially got "replit" after Amasad said (in frustration might I add... I think) to one of their friends using the replit prototype, "just repl it!". Repls are probably named after the read-eval-print loop or use a read-eval-print loop.
