as indicated by title above. most open source repo project uses this so its good indicator of how useful it is

example page:

https://forum.freecodecamp.org/t/freecodecamp-algorithm-challenge-guide-reverse-a-string/16043

Its different than an online IDE in that it generates a random string of letters at the end of its URL, similar to imgur.com

So you keep track of your repl's using URL's

like this one for instance https://repl.it/CLjU

EDIT

This is also one of the fastest ways I've found for debugging a snippet of javascript code quickly, without any form of setting up anything (cloud9 ide, Visualstudiocode, Codepen.io, chrome browser tools, etc)

It lets you have a version history tracker as well, very useful

You can also from what I recall use this to write code on your phone and then debug / clean up on PC
