Presenting... Replit User Search v3
Heya, it's me! I haven't posted anything in some time, so here's a kewl little project. Ever wanted to look for a Replit user, but didn't know what their username was?
Presenting... Replit User Search v3!
OPEN IN A NEW WINDOW
My previous two search engines are defunct, broken, and just no longer good solutions. This new search engine is a full-stack NextJS project that utilizes actual Replit API's to give you the best search experience.
How Do I Use It?
It's very simple!, first log in via your Replit username/password*. Then start typing a username and watch as search results pop up!
I hope you enjoy this project, and hope it remains useful longer than the previous two search engines xD. Please leave suggestions and bugs below, I'll address them when possible!
* I need your username/password to get some cookies, and ReplAuth doesn't provide them so I use the actual login API. For those with concerns about typing in usernames/passwords just know I don't store your credentials, the website is serverless, and the API is the same one you use to sign in on Replit! I grab a
connect.sidcookie when you sign in so that I can use authenticated GraphQL queries (which username search requires). You can also login with just the sid via this url.
Also if you want an explanation:
Some GraphQL queries (userByUsername, posts, comments) don't require
connect.sidhowever others (mainly mutations, but also currentUser and userSearch) need a valid
connect.sidtoken to perform the query which is why I use the Login API to get the cookie.
I used SID because of GitHub login but it works great otherwise! Maybe add other logins and it will be helpful for us OAuthers.
@JakeHu2020 then I would go to your cookies, look for one called
connect.sid and then go to https://replit-user-search-v3.rayhanadev.repl.co/login?useSid=true and put the value from the cookie.
If this was a scam do tell why so many people still used it? Do tell why moderators haven't taken down this post? Do tell why me, a moderator myself, would try to run a scam. The application is serverless anyways so anything you see is done on your browser. Do you really need me getting more defensive?
Lol how are you guys so good? I joined like a year ago yet im really bad ;-; lol (im vote up tho! :)
