Mozilla brings Web app dev inside the browser with WebIDE
See the original posting on JavaWorld
Mozilla is offering in-browser application development features for its Firefox browser with its WebIDE project. The technology helps developers build, edit, and test Web applications from within a browser.
Now featured in Firefox Nightly Builds, which are builds for testing purposes, WebIDE is intended to assist developers who are not sure how to start application development on the Web. “We’re solving that problem with WebIDE, built directly into Firefox. Instead of starting from zero, we provide you with a functioning blueprint app with the click of a button,” said Dave Camp and Robert Nyman of the Mozilla.hacks.org blog in a post this week. “You then have all the tools you need to start creating your own app based on a solid foundation.”
