Cool repl.it easter egg
Profile icon

Poking around at a REPL can lead you to the domain "ProjectName.Username.repl.run" located above the console window. Interested to see what would happen, I went to the root domain repl.run and saw a familiar screen: the intro to the Star Wars ASCII animation accessible through Telnet. Got a nice laugh from that :)

repl.run has been deprecated for a while now. This easter egg no longer exists.

Oh well, at least the 404 has one

@SixBeeps

These are not the droids you're looking for
This is not the page you're looking for

Idk if it was supposed to be like this, I must be too much into Star Wars

It is indeed cool. It was actually chosen from a contest: https://repl.it/talk/announcements/replrun-homepage-contest/10843

That was up before the contest, and the contest winner's page still isn't implemented.
