Repl shows 0.5x for Hacker plan

Bug description:
Wrong CPU for hacker plan

Expected vs Current Behavior:

I expect to have 4vCPU on each Repl with hacker plan, and I see 0.5vCPU

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Click Repl name
  2. Turn on Boost
  3. It shows that I am at 0.5 and it costs 70@ a day to upgrade to 4vCPU

Bug appears at this link: Any of my repls

Replit Profile:

Regardless of your plan, your Repl will have 0.5vCPU and 0.5GB of Ram. When in the workspace, your Repl will have two gigs of both for an improved development experience and after you leave, the resources will be brought back to 0.5 gigs of each.

Hacker plan users are allowed one boosted Repl and one always-on Repl.


Isn’t the actual RAM limit 1gb? (Replit allows repls to use up to 1gb, but the UI acts like the limit is 512mb)

ok I got it now, I had some boosted repls that I forgot, and now it shows free for the 2gig.

Is there any reason why someone would boost a repl, unless they would also make it always on?

Typically if someone had a popular Repl that had a lot of ingoing and outgoing requests, having a both boosted and always-on Repl is a good solution.

With our new deployments product, Repls will be always-on by default and can be hosted on a machine with varying processing power.

I got it now, I was forgetting the case when a replit is called by a user, and will start automatically at that moment (on that case the boost might be helpful) Thanks!
