What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

I mostly work in the front-end web-development sections of [main], but sometimes branch out into the back-end aspects. For the front-end questions I find such sites as JS Fiddle and JS Bin invaluable for understanding problems and questions, not all questions or answers require a live demo, but some do.

Today I was trying, and frankly failing, to find a site to demo PHP code (though I'm sure I've come across such a site before, somewhere), so I thought it might be useful to have a larger repository of useful demo-sites for other languages, if only to save my future Google-fails.

So, perhaps one answer for each language for ease of searching (should the questions become a genuinely useful resource)?

(I couldn't find anything similar currently on the site, though that could, of course, mean that such a question has already been deleted...)

This is quite googleable and there are tons of them: google.com/search?q=online+ide What were your search terms that lead to failure? –  Wesley Murch Aug 11 '12 at 16:10
    
Note my explicit statement of Google-fail. Otherwise, though, yes. I sort of agree. –  David Thomas Aug 11 '12 at 16:11
    
I would think this could be more useful on SO than here, and there are already quite a few: stackoverflow.com/search?q=online+code+editor, here's one answer with loads of them: stackoverflow.com/a/11153123/398242 Also, why have a repository when just one or two are sufficient? jsfiddle has basically become the de facto for front end stuff. –  Wesley Murch Aug 11 '12 at 16:14
    
@WesleyMurch, I hadn't thought to search on Stack Overflow itself, since I assumed any such question would be massively off-topic. Hmm, in which case I'll delete this question (shortly). Your thoughts on voting to migrate that particular question to meta, since it seems ill-placed on SO itself. –  David Thomas Aug 11 '12 at 16:17
    
@DavidThomas such a question would be closed as off-topic now, but the older questions remain because they were on-topic once. Some are locked / protected. But an old question shouldn't necessarily serve as a good example of a question that would be on-topic today. –  Aaron Bertrand Aug 11 '12 at 18:56
