Replit student plan

As a student, I find it challenging as our projects require the app to be on until grading is done. Although I appreciate the generous student plan offered by replit, I believe that providing students with one always-on repl would greatly enhance our learning experience and increase the likelihood of continued usage of the platform and investment in plans in the future.


Hi @EliasKhoury1 thanks for your post and welcome to the community.

Can you give an example of a project that needs to be always on until grading is done? With websites the addresses are accessible from the moment you press run. For Python/Javascript Repls the marker would be able to click the run button.

Any more information that you can provide would be very useful!

Thank you so much for your response, it means a lot to me. Here’s some extra context for the task: we need to make a Python application that interacts with the web. This can include something like a flask api or something else.


Thanks @EliasKhoury1 for your quick reply!

You can share links to Flask sites ( links) and it will start when the person grading your project visits the page. I use Flask for a few of my own personal projects and others are able to access the sites with no issues. If the Repl isn’t currently running, they just refresh after a few seconds and the site should have restarted by then.

Hope this helps but if I’ve misunderstood or you have follow up questions please let me know!
