CodeSandbox Containers is in beta

CodeSandbox Containers was just announced by Ives van Hoorne on Hacker Noon.

Today we’re happy to announce CodeSandbox Containers. We execute your code on a server, which allows you to work on any JavaScript project that works locally.

But you gotta use it so they can test things and get it right.

We can only test CodeSandbox Containers fully when we have other people using it. … Please don’t use it for any project with files you don’t want publicly exposed. There’s also the chance that the service might be down because of things that we haven’t foreseen yet, in which case you’ll see a nice warning message.

We will dedicate the coming months to squash every bug we can find, when we think that CodeSandbox Containers is stable enough to remove the beta warning we will announce this.

"I got Visual Studio Code working in the browser!"

Ives van Hoorne, creator of CodeSandbox, tweeted this and the attached video has already racked up more than 41.5K views!

… This is not only Monaco, this is VSCode itself directly running in the browser with node shims connected to the APIs of CodeSandbox. This means that we can get Grid View, VSCode Extension support, breadcrumbs + more! I’m so excited by this! #

I’m close to getting VSCode extensions working in their own web worker, then we’ll get things like VIM mode, first class TypeScript support and more! The great thing is that it will work exactly as VSCode, it’s literally the same code base. #

VSCode themes in CodeSandbox?

Ives van Hoorne writes on Medium:

Personalizing color schemes is one of the most important things to have in an code editor.

CodeSandbox didn’t have any way to personalize colors in the editor since release, but I’m happy to announce that we do now. The best part is that we were able to reuse a big chunk of logic from VSCode directly and also support any VSCode theme natively in CodeSandbox!

CodeSandbox launched their dashboard and teams feature

I’ve been closely watching CodeSandbox and have been thoroughly impressed with the work Ives van Hoorne and the 75+ contributors have put into this online code editor for … React, Preact, Vue, and more.

I’ve been thinking about getting Ives on Founders Talk to talk about the business model behind CodeSandbox. It seems to have this interesting self baked, pay what you want, Patron model to cover the expenses of CodeSandbox. Most of the features are free with limits, and being a “Patron” lifts those limits + extra features, and supports the costs and development efforts.
