Could you add Password Protected repls for the hacker plan and above?
Would this really matter that much if your repls are already private? In what instance would this be helpful (I'm not trying to criticize, I'm just curious as to why you'd need this)?
@CyanCoding: Some people are using sensitive data in their private repls and they want it to be encrypted or having another pass ect
@CyanCoding: It is possible that Mosrod wants to give selective access to his private repls via a password, as it is currently not yet possible to share private repls with anyone. Just another idea!
@Tim Chen: Oh, that makes a lot of sense. I had thought that private repls meant that they were hidden from your profile but that they were still accessible via link.
@CyanCoding: Your initial thought was right. private repls are completely private, no one can access them ever. but some people would like to have a way to share this private repls secretley.
Related to this – we've been toying with the idea of using repl.it to deliver coding challenges as part of our interview process. Our ideal process would be a protected repl.it (either by password or "only people with the link can access" / no indexing / etc) that we could share with a candidate containing starter code, have them be able to fork and make changes (ideally without needing a hacker plan themselves), then submit their fork back to us for evaluation. CodeSandbox handles this workflow well for our React challenge, but we haven't found anything we like for Rails yet.
I'm guessing the classroom product probably has some of this workflow built-in, but our use case is shorter-term than a semester of class, so not sure if it would map.
(Also, congrats on 1.0! Feels like a really big leap forward. :clap:)
@shipstar: Thanks! It's been a really long journey for the team. :)
Classroom can handle that, and is not limited by semesters - although the downside is that an account is required for students. As a workaround, you can totally make multiple accounts (pre-made for students) and just pass the credentials along to the applicant.
