It depends on what you are using it for. VS and VSCode have great syntax highlighting (better than repl.it's) and better autocomplete and IntelliSense. They also have handy extensions to make your workflow better. However, you will need to manually set up your coding environment (e.g. you need to install node to be able to code in node.js). Repl.it is better for people who just want to code for fun, because it is online and has support for all major browsers. Also, you do not need to set up any environment. It works right off the box!

Conclusion

  • VSCode and VS has more powerful coding tools
  • Repl.it has more compatibility and easier for beginners

Hope this helps!

I second what the other dude replied with but I would add another positive to repl.it. Since your code is hosted on public servers, you just need to add a website part to your app, sign up for Uptimerobot and bam. You have publicly hosted code that runs 24/7.
