Adafruit’s WebIDE Is Live and Available

The Adafruit team has been hard at work on a new programming tool for the Raspberry Pi: WebIDE. It launched today and is live and available. This is similar to the Beaglebone’s Cloud9 IDE/Node.JS/Bonescript solution, but seems friendlier; point your web browser at the Pi and start programming (well, almost).

We finally have the Raspberry Pi WebIDE in a place where we think it is solid enough for an alpha release. First, a disclaimer: this release will likely have bugs, and minor issues, so we recommend that only experienced linux/python users install it for the time being. It is certainly our intention to get this solid and ready for all users, and we will let everyone know when we think it is at that point.
