Why you should use Replit?
Replit is a platform for creating and sharing software. You can write your code and host it all in the same place. Replit is also a place to learn how to code, so we have some awesome built-in educational features as well.
Replit can do it all. It can replace your:
code editor (e.g. VS Code, Sublime Text, IntelliJ IDEA) development environment (e.g. your operating system, and build tools like npm or pip) cloud provider (e.g. AWS, Netlify) team collaboration tools (e.g. Google Docs, GitHub) teaching tools (e.g. Canva, Moodle, Blackboard) learning tools (e.g. Codecademy, Coursera, Udemy, Udacity)
Every Repl you create is a fully functional development and production environment. "Hosting from your editor" makes it easy to iterate quickly on your work, collaborate with others, and get feedback.
We know there's a lot to learn, so we've broken down some of the key features below for developers, learners, and teachers. Choose your own path, or go through all of them to become an expert in all things Replit!

For software developers, Replit can be your IDE in the cloud. Having your IDE live in the cloud has a lot of benefits.
There's no setup! You can access your environment from any device, including your phone or tablet, and everything will just work. You can manage things like dependencies, build scripts, and environment variables in a single place and always be in sync. It's easy to get help from others. Every Repl is multiplayer-ready by default, so you can work with other developers in a Google Docs-like environment in real-time from anywhere in the world.
And under the hood, a Repl is a Docker container running in a VM, so you can run shell commands and do pretty much anything possible from a standard Linux box.
Let's talk about some really cool things Replit has to offer.
- 100 Days of Code - The Complete Python Course
- AI transmute a terminal app to website to gui app
- GhostWriter Beta and AI Mode AI Mode, which infuses state-of-the-art intelligence into nearly all IDE features. AI Mode sports an ML-powered pair programmer that completes your code in realtime, tools to generate, transform, and explain code, and an in-editor search utility that lets you find and import open-source code without leaving your editor (think Stackoverflow in your editor).AI Mode is like Multiplayer in that you collaborate in real-time with someone else. However, in this case, you're not coding with a person; instead, it's an agent representing the entire programming knowledge of the human race. We believe AI Mode will leapfrog traditional IDE features. AI Mode is the next major evolution of our platform. We think this will radically change how people write code on Replit — and in the process, will change software writ large. Forever.
Although learning to code is a bit harder in comparison to some other subjects but the way Replit is solving this problem is actually appreciable.
