Type: A FOSS clone of typing.io

on in misc • 8 min read

TL;DR: I made an awesome FOSS clone of typing.io that you can check out at type.shadowfacts.net and the source of which you can see here.

I’ve used typing.io on and off for almost a year now, usually when I’m bored and have nothing else to do. Unfortunately, I recently completed the Java file, the C++ file, and the JavaScript file (that last one took too much time, jQuery has weird coding formatting standards, IMO) meaning I’ve completed pretty much everything that interests me. Now if you want to upload your own code to type, you have to pay $9.99 a month, which, frankly, is ridiculous. $10 a month to be able to upload code to a website only to have more than the 17 default files (one for each langauge) when I could build my own clone.
