I think it would be great if the website could be open up for external collaboration as an open source project.
I'm going to close this issue out, since we're continuing to open source what we can, and there isn't any more that we can do with this ticket.
As we open source components, then we'll do so in a way that's visible.
And as Tim said, you can always find what we've published here: https://github.com/replit
We are slowly opening more and more of our site as open source projects. You can find them on our github page here: https://github.com/replit
@Tim Chen: But aren't you a startup? How do you make money? :)
@Tim Chen: Well, I guess you can make money just by hosting the whole thing for others, and controlling a few propriety features....
For now you could use a shared account
Just an additional suggestion, being able to contribute integrations at the least would be cool.
@Braunson Yager: Can you explain more?
We're working on it and in progress. We will enable you to contribute with Repl.it and in Repl.it, we will enable you to commit adding languages support to the website.
Other Open source projects like Facebook Jest and React uses Repl.it to reproduce bugs. we need your help to expand and spread the word.
@Haya: Do you have a date on when this may be released?
I second this. Moreover, it might be good if projects such as this one started working towards open standards for this sort of thing (submitting and evaluating coding solutions). There are so many platforms (learning and education sites, competitive coding sites and so-called online judges, etc.) sharing similar functionality that it seems like this is bound to happen to some extent at some point - why not sooner rather than later?
