An online integrated development environment,[1] also known as a web IDE[2] or cloud IDE,[3] is an integrated development environment that can be accessed from a web browser. Online IDEs can be used without downloads or installation, instead operating fully within modern web browsers such as Firefox, Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. Online IDEs can enable software development on low-powered devices that are normally unsuitable. An online IDE does not usually contain all of the same features as a traditional desktop IDE, only basic IDE features such as a source-code editor with syntax highlighting. Integrated version control and Read–Eval–Print Loop (REPL) may also be included.
