  • Would it be possible to run games on Quest2 while im developing it?
    You can easily experiment using something like so you don't need to worry about hosting or uploading. - Source: Reddit / 2 days ago
  • Should I switch from JavaScript to python
    If you are more advanced try pick something where you have access to learning materials and a learning community. Python may be a good choice if that is where you are at - but it really depends on what you want to do with your programming skills. If you want to build web apps but want to stick to one language then maybe sticking with Javascript for both the client and the server. In that case maybe Glitch is a... - Source: Reddit / 7 days ago
  • Something Pretty Right: The History and Legacy of Visual Basic
    Would Glitch be a modern equivalent? - Source: Hacker News / 10 days ago
  • Beginner here, I'm dealing with text overflow and I cant fix it I need help (im using replit if that helps)
    It's not clear what you are asking or what you've tried. Could you replicate/simplify the problem on or a similar site so you could share it? - Source: Reddit / 27 days ago
  • I’m stuck learning js
    It may seem counter-intuitive, but if you are stressing out and you put more pressure on yourself it can only make it worse. Definitely focus on doing things without tutorials - you can look up as much reference as you need, just don't follow any step by step instructions. Try messing around on Glitch or other websites that make it easy to experiment with lots of different projects. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Glitch Monthly Newsletter: Twitter ending free API support, community blog posts, WebMIDI and more 🎵
    See you on! Jenn, Director of Community 👽. - Source: / about 2 months ago
  • Where to Host a Node.js App
    Glitch is a playground and a way to build your apps faster than ever, and see them live on their own subdomain. You can also add a custom domain to your Glitch project. It looks fun (and this is a plus), and it’s not a dumbed-down environment — you get all the power of Node.js, a CDN, secure storage for credentials, GitHub import/export, and much more. - Source: / about 2 months ago

    There's Glitch if you want a new playground: - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago
  • Ask HN: Good resource on writing web app with plain JavaScript/HTML/CSS
    I can recommend for reference and for prototyping (and hosting if your needs are modest!) as well some good sample projects. - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago
  • Long live personal websites, Let's make the web personal again
    IMO making "a new Wordpress" doesn't feel like a great alternative -- Wordpress is pretty good as it is, and you have the option of self-hosting fairly painlessly if you want to. The fun of late-90s website-making is real though, but I don't see a turn towards that for the vast majority of people. One nice corner of optimism is projects like Glitch [1], which give just enough space to explore, go wild, and quickly... - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago
  • What is something free on the internet everyone should take advantage of ?

  • Replit Mobile App
    High school student here. Idk if coding on mobile will take off in it's current form. The tooling works, but it doesn't work well. I can (and have) writen things in the editor on Glitch[1] or in Termux on my phone, but the reduced typing speed for code (you can't rely on autocorrect like with normal text) and the lack of a proper web inspector (I use eruda[2] which is fine but missing features compared to the... - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • Replit Mobile App
    Https:// works on phones, codesanbox doesn't iirc, codepen does. - Source: Hacker News / 5 months ago
  • what is the best IDE to use for the browser (chrome)?
    I use Glitch. They allow you to host a website easily and get updates in real time. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • The Complete Guide to a Career in Web Development: Basic Concepts and Getting Started
    There's absolutely nothing wrong with continuing to use Codepen or similar services like Codesandbox, Replit or Glitch while learning, but at some point you are probably going to want to know how to built websites using tools on your own computer. - Source: / 6 months ago
  • Where to store gltf file online for codepen load?
    Glitch—I’ve done a lot of model-viewer projects with this one and it’s also very similar to codepen and you can upload models as well. Once you upload on it, click on the file thumbnail and a modal pops up with an option to copy the file url. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
