Replit is an online coding environment where you can start coding instantly, right from your browser, and with GitHub integration and support for nearly every major programming language.
There is a strong focus on the education sector, such as the Teams for Education module, and as the case studies describe it’s a tool loved by teachers. The team are working hard with Scottish educators to support their needs.
A key goal for this site is to share ‘Replit Recipes‘, template code samples created by other teachers that you can use for your own class. Not only are these practices that can be learned, but they are immediately implementable as well.
