Welcome back to the Replit Changelog!

We merged a total of 866 pull requests in the past two weeks. In addition to the major launches we shipped this week, we also have some small polish changes.

Replit India

We launched Replit India to improve the speed and performance of the coding experience for developers located far from the United States. You can now choose between the United States and the India server clusters.

Navigate to your account, change your server location, and fire your Repls up with minimal latency.

Git in the Shell

We just shipped a smoother Git experience in the shell. Instead of manually entering your Git credentials for each command, simply grant Replit access to your credentials, allowing for seamless control of your repositories without any authentication issues.

Many thanks to Ryan for all his hard work in making the Git experience better for everyone.

Bounties Page Redesign

The Bounties page has undergone a redesign. On top of looking better, you can now view Bounties you've posted and Bounties you're participating in.

Anon Repl Redesign

Have you checked out the Replit dog or the Replit cat before? Unfortunately you won't be directed to a cute dog or cat GIF, instead you'll land on an Anonymous Repl. Anonymous Repls are Repls that don't have an owner and give you a complete surprise if you fork them.

Thanks to our famous and amazing designer Clément Rozé, also known as Bookie0, the page for anonymous Repls has been updated to use our Design System

Anonymous Repls were more widely used in the past but are now deprecated. If you want to learn more about anonymous Repls, check out the blog post.

Markdown Component Redesign

Did you know you can have an element that hides and shows content in Markdown files? You can use the <details> and <summary> html tags to do this as in the image below:

We fixed these components that used to render with poor spacing.

Speaking of Markdown, we recently published a Markdown tutorial covering everything from basic to advanced syntax, as well as custom renderers for Loom videos, Figma canvases, and more.

Badge Overflow fix

Who doesn't love to have tons of badges on their Replit profile? Faris sure loves to! Before, creators with many badges would find some of them hiding behind the showcased Repl on their profile.

Be sure to show your gratitude to the CSS grandmaster for this and lots of other UI polish.

Did you know Replit had a Discord server? It's been around for many years but the link to it had been broken for a while. We've now fixed it so you can hop right into the Discord server and instantly connect with the community.

Welcome to the first edition of Replit Updates in 2023!

In the past two months, the Replit engineering team shipped tons of new features and merged a whopping 2311 pull requests!

In just the past week, 253 pull requests have been merged. Congrats to our top contributor Madison Fitch with 115 commits. Let's dive into some of the major features we released to production!


We've partnered with Neon to give you the power to connect to a PostgreSQL database from within your Repl. In the Tools section of the left sidebar, you should see an elephant icon which will open up the PostgreSQL pane.


Setting up a database has never been easier! Hit the button to set up your database, and your Secrets will automatically be populated to get the database up and running.

You can use an ORM like Prisma or Sequelize as well. Or if you like writing raw SQL, we support that too. Now you've got a powerful database fueling the fire of your latest and greatest Repl!


Feeling generous? You can now tip your favorite creators with Cycles and earn them from others by creating awesome content.


On top of the ability to give Cycles to others, there is a global leaderboard showcasing the most generous community members.

Custom Themes

To finish off 2022, we released the most-requested feature of all time—Themes. Now you can create your own theme or explore and apply Themes created by your fellow community members.

Cycles Transaction History

On the Cycles page, you will now notice a new Transactions tab.

The Transactions tab shows the amount of Cycles going in and out of your account, as well as a detailed account of what you spent your Cycles on—making it easier to organize and track usage.

New Bounties Features

Bounties have now been released to all Replit users. On top of that, a ton of cool features have been added to bounties after the launch.

  • Bounties now have a pre-filled template as part of the posting flow
  • You can now edit your Bounties
  • You can sort Bounty applications by Recommended, Newest, and Oldest
  • You can now escalate and report Bounties to the Moderation team

Taking a look at Amjad Masad's tweets, you will find some crazy and amazing Bounties and case studies.
