"Great in a crunch, and it packs a punch!"

What do you like best?

Repl.it is no way meant to replace your development environment, but it certainly enhances it! Repl.it is your go-to when that environment you rely so much on fails.

What do you dislike?

Repl.it's only downside is that it can be incredibly slow at times. Even still, when you're cranking out a few lines with the goal being to transfer your code to your environment later, Repl.it functions as a quick solution.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Do you have a meeting coming up with new ideas to teach to your team? Don't bother loading your touchy development environment. Just use Repl.it.

- Easy to understand interface

- Intuitive design

What do you dislike?

- Need to upgrade for premium features

- Python language support could be improved, though just an ask, not a big deal

- C++ language support is very weak, could be made better. Not sure how platform specific code will work though

Recommendations to others considering the product:

- I think that repl.it is a great company

- All of you folks are doing a great job, keep up the great work

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"A major tool for quick testing"

What do you like best?

I like that repl.it lets you quickly test code on almost any device with a web browser, without requiring the user to download or install an IDE or compiler. The platform is simple and easy to use, making code testing while I'm not on my main computer a breeze.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that free users are not allowed to use private repls. I believe that free users should at least have two free private repls that they can use for testing that they might not want everyone to be able to access.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Even though its probably best to use a paid account, there's still a lot you can do with just a free account! Before you take out your wallet, make sure to give the free platform a whirl, odds are that you'll probably just need one repl for quick code testing and in that case the free plan is perfect.

This is definitely a good fit for freelancers that have to show a client running code or for organizations that want to empower their employees with a valuable tool for on-the-go use or for demonstrating functioning code (or even debugging that code!).

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Instead of installing an entire development kit on a computer I might only use once, I can simply use repl.it with a web browser instead, saving valuable time and ensuring that I can access a testing sandbox from anywhere, for most major languages.

"Great learning tool"

What do you like best?

The ease of use and how fast you can get up and running with your preferred framework. I'm able to accelerate my learning by cutting out all of the fuss that's associated with configuring full blown dev environments.

What do you dislike?

Could offer more options in terms of software addons and integrations with other providers.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm testing ideas and learning new frameworks without the hassle of setting up professional development environments.

"Great alternative to an IDE"

What do you like best?

repl.it is particularly useful for use on low-powered devices or devices with no ability to install traditional software, such as Chromebooks.

What do you dislike?

There's not much to dislike about repl.it. One thing that could use some improvement is the mobile interface. Autocomplete is not functional on mobile and the interface feels too crowded on the relatively small screen of a mobile device.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

repl.it allows for the use of Chromebooks for teaching programming in an IDE that achieves near feature parity with traditional desktop IDEs.

"Excellent IDE and way to share/pair program"

What do you like best?

Really smooth interface and user experience, supports multiple programming languages

What do you dislike?

Free plan has limited repls and upgrading may not always be worth it

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are other live IDE/coding platforms that offer a wider array of features, so depending on the size of your company, you may want to look at other options to be more cost-effective

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy way to interview applicants and look at live code, interactive environment, great way to share code as well

"Great Platform for Sandboxing Applications"

What do you like best?

Love how quick I can use this application to try out different ideas in node

Not sure I like everything being public, and not useful enough to be paid for.
