Adafruit has been doing a lot of fantastic work with the Raspberry Pi, but their latest announcement has me quite geeked. The WebIDE will let you code and run programs for your Raspberry Pi from a web browser on any computer. The WebIDE is served from the Pi itself, much like how you can use Cloud9 to write Node.js code for the BeagleBone. Here’s what Adafruit is saying about WebIDE:

We love the Raspberry Pi. This tiny computer has so much potential for makers, and it is offered at an extremely reasonable price. The one thing we didn’t like about the Pi is how inaccessible it is to those who are new to Linux. So, the tiny team that brought you the Adafruit Learning System set out to develop our own way to open up the Raspberry Pi for everyone. What started out as a barebones, and basic way to get code running on your Pi, turned into something much more awesome. The Raspberry Pi WebIDE is extremely easy to use, but also very feature-rich and powerful.

    Anything that can run its own IDE is *not* embedded. :-)

    just stick some framework like pyramids on it and you should be ready to go. it is nice to have it all pre-packaged though.
