Runnable repl.it embed


(Quincy Larson) #1

We would like to be able to embed runnable Repl.it embeds like this one.

Repl.it supports embedding and documents this here: repl.it - How to Embed Repl.it

But since embed uses an iframe, Discourse seems to suppress it. Is there a way we could somehow whitelist this so people could include runnable code snippets in their posts?

We recommend codepen instead, which should already work.


(Quincy Larson) #3

We’re using CodePen heavily elsewhere within Free Code Camp’s community, but it only works for JavaScript (and doesn’t have a REPL).

REPL.it works for a wide variety of programming languages. How can we get REPL.it embeds to work?


(Sam Saffron) #4

You would either need to make a plugin for it, or send through a PR to the onebox gem to optionally allow this embedding (default off)


(Quincy Larson) #5

OK - thanks for clarifying. I will reach out to REPL.it and see if they can add themselves to OneBox.
