Replit

Replit
Not to be confused with Replot.


Replit (formerly Repl.it) is an online integrated development environment created by Amjad Masad and Max Shawabkeh (former Google engineer, current game developer) supporting more than 50 programming languages. Replit started as a personal project between Masad and Shawabkeh in the middle of 2009. Max later left for unknown reasons. Replit also has a Discord Server.


Replit supports a wide array of languages and those that are officially supported can be viewed at the language list; however, there are languages that run on Replit that have not been officially announced or are not listed. The most popular is the makefile language, Polygott.


Replit has thousands of users using it, and a large community. It is possible to see them in Talk and Replit Discord. Replit frequently hosts challenges for its users with prizes.


Although not many are aware of this, Replit is a front for Amasad's real money maker, Repl.it Egg Rolls, and was made purely for legal reasons.


During March 2021, Repl.it rebranded to Replit.com, and the admins say this was because new users were confused on what they should be calling it. This action has made some members of the community angry.
