Last week we announced the Pro plan to speed up your development with Replit’s AI tools and an even more powerful Workspace.
Today we are expanding all of our paid plans to add the ability to use SSH to remotely access your Repls.
SSH allows you to take full advantage of the power of Replit while continuing to use your local development environment. For example, with your perfectly-optimized emacs or vim setup, and sshfs, you can work on and host projects on Replit without giving up your editor. You can even use VSCode with the Remote SSH extension to work on your Repls.
How to get started
If you are subscribed to a paid plan, you will notice a new “SSH” entry in the Tools section of the Workspace. You can add your SSH keys and start working with your Repl remotely!
For more information on how to use SSH, check out our documentation, which includes detailed instructions for OpenSSH and PuTTY.
It just means that you can work remotely not via a browser but any suppliti IDE.
This is a neat thing that is often used when developing for a target machine different from the programmer one (like you programming in windows but wanting to run code of a raspberry pi)
Or in a replit IDE.
SSH allows to use other ide for anything else (well fit sometimes is messed up) but despite being a fan if copilot, GhostWriter chat is really grown on me. Once it stops making coding mistakes, it will be truly an asset for programming.
Well, that would mean all that is to be coded has been coded because AI is just a trained machine. It does nit truly posses fantasy and innovative thinking.
So no. At least at its current stages, I doubt it will be the happen.
