Should sololearn give the option of saving code to the device in addition to the sololearn server ?

While coding i always encountered a problem of no internet connection on pressing the save button...and it took 4-5 attempts to save the code...I think that other users also face this type of problem...If sololearn uses user's device to save the code file....then it would be easy to save the code and also we would have the code file to use it anywhere else.... So, guys what's your view on this problem....

the option of exporting your codes would be nice. especially when working without internet.

Arthur & Jordan .... Only option of saving code to the device with extension (ex- .cs, c++, .html) is enough....Code should still run online.... I think sololearn just put an option of saving code to the device with its proper extension. rest should be the same as now..

It will be good.We can easily export it and use a pen drive to use the code in pc,laptops,etc.

i think would be cool if sololearn put the option to save the codes in Sololearn server and in your device

Ben Allen (Njinx) I tried another app to write and compile the codes...and it provided the facility of saving code on the device....so it is possible to write and save the code while offline.. compiling can be done later..when online

well, you can download thé approptiate compiler for thé Language u use, si thé issue of not having à compiler shoudnt ne à problem

Ben Allen (Njinx) But it can be done For example the app Qpython for android (dont have in play store anymore)

ghali lawal Not all the languages here have a compiler for Android. And some code is platform specific so it wouldn't be compatable with Android.

+4

Ben Allen (Njinx) But it can be done for python so... It will help a lot because 40% of the users use python

Ben Allen (Njinx) But of course SoloLearn will put some limit like time limit or no dangerous imports

Code is just a text file, if you wanted you could just copy/paste the code into something like an email or person note that is saved on your phone. That being said, I think the option to save the codes as text files (perhaps with the standard extensions for whatever language they are written in) would be neat.

Jordan But if the code could run offline will help a lot....

+4

Arthur That would be a lot more complicated since the compiler/interpreter for each language would need to be included in the application. That would drastically increase the space it would occupy on the device it is installed on. Then it wouldn't fit on crappy phones like mine :'(

+4

Yes it should. i sometimes screenshots my codes just because i would refer to it later and i do not want to open the app

The problem is your smartphone doesn't have a compiler. So you couldn't run any of your code (except websites.)

+3

ghali lawal Compiler is not the problem....it is only about the option of saving code to the device...

+3

Arthur Qpython is only for Python. SoloLearn would have to integrate a compiler for every language into their app. It doesn't make sense to do.

+3

Arthur Hmm, it could be dangerous though. Running random code on your phone.

Jordan A simple emulator is like 7mb and sololearn areald have support to the languages so he would delete some spaces too
