Python Fiddle, an IDE That Runs In Your Browser 113

An anonymous reader writes "The site Python Fiddle, like the similarly named jsFiddle, allows users to post code and share it with others. However, unlike jsfiddle, pythonfiddle brings a major advancement with the Python language, which fully runs in the browser."

    Stop trying to reinvent the wheel, my applications work just fine without the need for a web browser.

    and in the end, (which, of course, is a "new beginning") what was the browser will want to be able to run a new and shiny alternative browser...

    But everyone has to jump in on the latest fad, don't you know that? I remember the "it'll all be thin clients all the way down!" fad, the grid computing fad, and now the "all you need is a browser and the magical perfect cloud!" fad.

    The fads they come, the fads they go, but there is a damned good reason why desktops have been virtually unchanged in the past twenty years design wise, and that is because they WORK. Having lots of processing power, memory, and storage, all at the user's fingertips? it is nice, it makes things faster and works even without the magic cloud. But everyone needs to jump on the fads or else they wouldn't be fads now would they?

    But hey, if making an IDE run really REALLY slow by sticking it in a browser gives them a happy? More power to them I say. Some make models, some play guitar, if jamming an IDE in a browser is what they like to blow their weekends on different strokes.

    You might have picked a better criticism of Visual Studio than "it takes up too much hard disk space." That's a pretty weak criticism in today's world of very cheap, very large drives.[on this scale].

Computer programmers do it byte by byte.
