I built a web based IDE with live-reloading which you can use to make, run, and share web apps. I made it for my kids so that they have a nice simple environment in which they can learn web app development without complex command line tooling and hosting, but I hope it will be useful to non-kid amateurs and maybe even professionals too.
The main things it does differently from existing online code editors are:
- It's fiercely independent, entirely self-contained in a single HTML file with no server side dependencies.
- It supports live-reloading of changes so you can iterate very quickly on designs and functionality.
- You can share the apps you make peer-to-peer between different devices so you don't need to host them online.
Slingcode is a personal computing platform in a single html file.
- You can make, run, and share web apps with it.
- You don't need any complicated tools to use it, just a web browser.
- You don't need a server, hosting, or an SSL certificate to run the web apps.
- You can put Slingcode on a web site, run it from a USB stick, laptop, or phone, and it doesn't need an internet connection to work.
- You can "add to home screen" in your phone's browser to easily access your library of programs on the go.
- You can share apps peer-to-peer over WebTorrent.
- It's private. You only share what you choose.
