You know, what’s one feature we really wish Repl.it has? A user search bar. Well I’m bored of waiting. I present to you:

The Unofficial Repl.it User Searchbar!

A small minimalistic searchbar, just type in the name of the user EXACTLY how it’s spelled and you will be taken to their page. Easy peasy! Why don’t you try it now, type in the searchbar RayhanADev or anyone!

Click here for a fullscreen page with you can bookmark!

Working on a Major Revision!

This “search-bar” is getting a major revision soon! New functionality and all sorts of stuff (very vague but you’ll see ;P)

Excuse me, a search bar isn't supposed to ask me to input the exact user to find, that defeats the entire purpose of the search bar.

@Jeydin21 yeah, critics adore me xD. I’m working with people to make a new one that actually does “search-bar” stuff. (Read the new section “Working on Major Revision”)

It's not really a search bar if your just adding a string to a url, I suggest prompting or something. Overall though, the css looks really nice, congrats.

@pepelaugh thank you! What exactly do you mean prompting...?

Profile icon

@RayhanADev Eg, i enter pepel and it pops up a box with "pepelaugh". you can do this with requests I think, or maybe something simpler.

Profile icon
RayhanADev

@pepelaugh hmm, let me look into it. Wouldn’t I need a database with everyone in Repl’s name though?

Profile icon

@RayhanADev Probably, or with keywords like if redirects to "404" idk.

Profile icon
RayhanADev

@pepelaugh Well do you have a decent understanding of what needs to be done to make it an actual search bar?

Profile icon
badst

@RayhanADev Not really, i'm more of a C guy. What's your point?

Profile icon
RayhanADev

@pepelaugh Well I made this more for fun, but I thought that since you were interested you might want to work on this and make it a full-fledged search bar.
Do you know anyone who might want to help?

@RayhanADev Nope. and sorry, i was assuming you were speaking to me like "you don't know what you're talking about" lol.
If you need help with Python or c/c#/c++ sure tho.

Profile icon
RayhanADev

@pepelaugh oh no, no. I see how I kinda may have come off like that so sorry on my part xD. Um, thanks I may ask for your help if I ever actually get into Python or C lmao.

Uhh... that's not really a search bar, it's just redirecting to the user's profile

Profile icon
RayhanADev

@DynamicSquid True, not a “search-bar” but it does make it much easier to navigate to a profile without all the icky scrolling through projects, or trying to mess with URL business.

Profile icon
RayhanADev

@DynamicSquid Is there a better word I should use? Redirect isn’t the correct term per se, but I suppose search bar isn’t either...

RayhanADev

Note on some viewports, it might glitch just a bit and squish elements. Working on a fix right now!

@RayhanADev Fixed! Easy peasey responsive squeezey (that didn’t make sense in my head or in text xD)
