This is my first post, so hopefully it will turn out well
I've used repl.it multiple times in the past because I used a chromebook and didn't want to convert it to crouton. I found that it was a really good way for coding, in any language. I've used this for a couple months to code my discord bot, Ratchet. I've mainly used python for this, but all of the pros and cons should apply for many languages.
|This is a web browser application. You don't need to download anything.
|You need to be connected to the internet for your code to run at all.
|Addons are easy to 'download'. Just write their names.
|I only know of this for python
|This can run for a really long time
|Not forever though. If you close your computer, it will stop.
|Auto Saving onto Cloud. You can also download all of the files if you're offline
|Doesn't save onto cloud. So, if you refresh....
|I've never tried this feature, so, I don't know any cons...
|Real Time Collaborating
|Currently in Beta
|A community. You can ask any questions for problems you have with repl or coding
|It is not as fast as stack overflow.
|It also has a console and uses linux
|This console is really hard to use, (for me). I couldn't understand how to do bash commands and etc.
I'll keep updating as I find more. (Or leave a comment for things you find)
Let me know for anything I can improve on in the future with writing posts. As I said, it is my first post.
