Online code editing

Wednesday, 18th February 2009 12:03am
I always keep an eye on what is happening at the Mozilla Labs and recently they launched Bespin which is an open source web-based framework for code editing.


Basically its an online IDE which supports for basic editing features, such as syntax highlighting, large file sizes, undo/redo, previewing files in the browser, importing/exporting projects.


I had a quick look at the IDE and I think at the moment it will be ideal for HTML and JavaScript but I think as the project goes more can be derived from it.


Another alternative online IDE that I know of is Amy Editor which I think is best used if you specify you own server.


Another one maybe a little bit different is codepad which is an online compiler/interpreter and I think its best maybe for testing code snippets for the languages listed which include PHP, Ruby, Python and C++.


I think Mozilla Labs are on the right path here and I will be following the development of Bespin over the next few months where it leads to.
