The All New “try-it” style editor.
As we all know, reading code can be abstract and disconnected from its actual results. An on page code editor is a great way to re-connect ourselves with the code’s function. As you may have seen at W3schools.com and a bunch of other websites, the try-it type editor can be a very helpful when learning html and css. I decided I didn’t want everyone else to have all the fun, so yourshoesuntied.com had to have a “try-it” editor too.
In the end it seemed that a simplified design and functionality worked the best. After that, it just needed a catchy name like The Sandbox to glue it all together. It’s safe to say that phase one is complete. Phase two is where the real fun begins.
In the next week or so, I will write a tutorial on how The Sandbox works. As usual I will include all the necessary code to get one working on your site. I also plan on building a smaller pluggable version that can be pasted directly into my posts. I think that will come in handy as the site continues to grow.
Hope you like it and stay tuned for the tutorial.
