‌https://repl.new shortcut is broken

Problem description:

When I go to https://repl.new, it redirects to https://replit.com/@util/new-redirector#index.js.
Expected behavior:
prompts to create a new repl

Actual behavior:
Goes to https://replit.com/@util/new-redirector#index.js

Steps to reproduce:
go to https://repl.new

Bug appears at this link:
https://repl.new
https://replit.com/@util/new-redirector#index.js

Browser:
OS:
Device (Android, iOS, NA leave blank):
Desktop app version (Avatar menu->“Version”) or NA:
Plan (Free, Replit Core):


EDIT: The repl itself also contains profanity, so beware.

Is this the shortcut to make a new repl?
I use replit.com/new, and it’s that one. Your one may have been chnaged to this one.

https://repl.new was the original shortcut, and it would redirect to new-redirector.util.repl.co, which would redirect to replit.com/new. I think their current repl.new should just redirect to a deployed version of the new redirector.

Does it pass in the Search Params used by the “/new” page?

  • tab
    • replit
      • template - template UUID
    • github
      • language
      • githubRepo

This would be useful so I can shorten down the URL even more.

huh? I just typed in repl.new/html and was redirected to the HTML repl create screen… i guess?

You add these parameters to automatically setup the new configuration.

https://replit.com/new?tab=replit&language=html&template=160910a4-5017-4602-81e0-a948bc939a6a

This will generate an Asri repl

And sadly after quickly testing, it does not.
https://repl.new/?tab=replit&language=html&template=160910a4-5017-4602-81e0-a948bc939a6a

It should do this.

If you go to repl.new/__repl, it goes back to the new redirector Repl, so I think they just deployed it.

Shortest I could get it is https://replit.com/new?language=html&template=160910a4-5017-4602-81e0-a948bc939a6a

If you somehow get Asri “official”, then maybe the Repl ID can be changed so it’d just be repl.new/asri but that’s very unlikely.

If you REALLY need it to be short, just use tinyurl or bit.ly with a custom alias.

EDIT: Got it down to https://replit.com/new?template=160910a4-5017-4602-81e0-a948bc939a6a, apparently the language thing isn’t required but you still have to put a question mark in its place. :person_shrugging:

The ampersand isn’t needed if you don’t have the first language argument.

Oh, I’m like really sure I tried it without the ampersand and it didn’t work, but OK.

Well that wouldn’t make sense, because that’s just how URL arguments work

Not if you extract them a certain way.
