    Has almost everything I need

    I've started using this as my main IDE for new projects when I'm trying things out. If it keeps getting better at the rate it has been, it'll be even better than coding locally.

    🏁 Competitors: replit

I tell them to use an online IDE... - Source: Reddit / 1 day ago
