Clicking on the blue + new repl will prompt you to enter the type of coding language you want to create. Clicking on the three dots located on the side of each project will give a set of options, including edit, history, or delete.

Collaboration

One of the key features of Repl.it is the fact that it supports sharing and multiplayer. For the first time, you can collaborate on programming projects online with ease, much like Google Docs. User's text edits will be clearly marked, and there is a real time chat for easier communication. In addition, you can view other people's projects and duplicate them for personal use. For a quick video about the application of multiplayer, see https://repl.it/site/blog/multi.

Replacement for

Any text editor. This is not a replacement for Microsoft Word or Google Docs, which are meant for document creation, not programming. Note that this can only be used online. If the editor is offline, it will not close out the application, but will not be able to be saved.
