Replit Python


From Python, to C, to HTML and CSS, stay in one platform to learn and code in any language you want. The second you create a new repl, it's instantly live and sharable with the world. Learning resources. Learn how to code from 3 million+ passionate programmers, technologists, creatives, and learners of all kinds.

  • At Replit, our mission is to make programming more accessible. We provide people with free compute in the cloud so that they can build apps on any device. Among the most popular ways to create apps on the web today is React. Historically, however, React tooling has been slow on Replit.
  • Developing an Audio Library for Replit. If you are new to Python or JavaScript, you can follow our steps below to make a library. Step 1: Add an audio source. Files are played in mono/single channel mode. Files with multiple channels will be read and converted into single channel data.

Replit (rep·lit), formerly, is a San Francisco-based start-up and an online IDE (integrated development environment).[3] Its name comes from the acronym REPL, which stands for 'read–evaluate–print loop'. Amjad Masad, Faris Masad, and Haya Odeh co-founded the company in 2016.[1][2]


Replit allows users to write code and build apps and websites using a browser.[4] The site also has various collaborative features, including capability for real-time, multiuser editing with a live chat feed. It supports over 50 programming and markup languages, including Java, Python, and HTML, enabling users to build apps and websites. The site is integrated with GitHub, a code-hosting platform, providing a way to import and run projects from GitHub.[5] Users can also import projects from Glitch, which provides a similar service to Replit.


Replit was created by programmers Amjad Masad, Faris Masad, and designer Haya Odeh in 2016.[1][2]

Before creating Replit, Amjad Masad worked in engineering roles at Yahoo and Facebook, where he built development tools. He also help found Codecademy. Masad had come up with the idea for Replit over a decade before its creation.[5]

In 2009, Masad tried to write every programming language in JavaScript, but it was not practical. He saw great leaps in browser and web technologies and he was inspired by Google Docs web capabilities. He thought of the idea of being able to write code in a browser and make it easy to share it. He spent two years creating an open-source product with Haya Odeh called 'JSRepl'.[6] This product allowed him to compile languages into JavaScript. This product powered Udacity and Codecademy's tutorials. After becoming an early employee of Codecademy, this project was put off until years later, when he and Odeh decided to revive the project of a programming environment in a browser.[3][5]

As Replit was taking shape, Masad and Odeh wanted to have 'a real environment and not something emulated in the browser.' The focus was first directed at the education market, and then later towards professional developers.[3]

Since March 2021, '' has been the default domain name for the web service replacing the older ''. This change was attributed to Masad's preference that people pronounce the website's name as rep·lit instead of re·pu̇l.[6] Another reason cited by Masad was issues with the '.it' TLD, such as renewal restrictions.[7]

Replit has never been just about code.

It's also about the stories we tell, the apps and games we build, and how we collaborate. It's a part of Replit's DNA to make our community baked into the experience of learning and making.

Today, we're announcing Spotlight pages: a new way to showcase your repls to the world. Whenever you visit someone else's repl, you'll see its Spotlight page where you can play with the repl's output, browse its code, and comment all in one place. And if you want to start a multiplayer session with someone new, you can directly request to edit their repl.

Here's a demo of adding a new feature to a game using the Kaboom framework on Replit.

We were motivated to create this new page for two main reasons: to make repls the host of social activity, and to separate repl creation from presentation.


Previously, you had to create a post on Repl Talk in order to comment on repls. The issue, though, was that if you ever visited someone else's repl, you'd be automatically taken to the Workspace which had no reference to the posts about it! Even worse, the primary content you'd see on a post was text, not the repl itself.

Now, instead of manually creating a post that you attach a repl to, your repl is social by default and it's the main star of the show ⭐️.

Here's a demo of requesting to edit a repl that recreates the iOS home screen using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

We wanted to separate repl creation from presentation for a very simple reason: they're super different activites!

Think about it like this: editing a video is much different than posting on YouTube. Composing a song is different than publishing on Spotify. Painting a portrait in a studio is much different than hosting an exhibit in a museum.

And on Replit, writing code in the Workspace is different than viewing your Spotlight page. They're distinct activites that require distinct experiences, especially as Replit's community grows.

To open to a repl's Spotlight page from the Workspace, open up the popover in the header and click Open Spotlight page.

...and of course, you can fork any repl to tinker with whatever you want.

Spotlight pages mark a signifcant step forward in the evolution of Replit as a platform: an environment for being creative and sharing that creativity. Although Spotlight pages are simple and relatively barebones right now, they're just one piece of the rest of improvements we're making.

After this, we're working on a new feature called Explore that will let you publish repls and browse them easily, all of which will automatically link to Spotlight pages.

With updates coming soon to your Profile, you'll be proud to showcase live, running, breathing apps-- not just dead code. Every profile will be a place to share and talk, which means that anyone can essentially create and manage their own community.

And as Teams and Multiplayer continue to develop, more people than ever will be able to directly work together and create their own studios, hackathons, learning groups, businesses, and more.


We'll continue to add features and improve this feature as we hear more feedback from y'all. So if you have thoughts, leave a comment on its Spotlight page 😉
