Programming can be an art, so it’s frustrating when a new idea gets held back by dry paint — er — broken development environments.
With the Next Sandbox, a ready-to-go computing environment is just a click away. This means you can be describing your idea to someone one minute and working on building it in front of them a few seconds later. Plus, when you’re done, you can easily share a URL directly to your sandbox!
Here are some sandboxes can get started with!
- Python: https://nt.dev/python
- Node: https://nt.dev/nodejs
- Ruby: https://nt.dev/ruby
- Java: https://nt.dev/java
Once you’ve launched a sandbox, you’re presented with a code editor and terminal to get started with. So for example, in a Python sandbox, you could put this in a file called
from flask import Flask app = Flask(__name__) @app.route('/') def hello_world(): return 'Hello, World!'
and then run this in your terminal:
pip3 install flask --user export FLASK_APP=server.py flask run --host=0.0.0.0
Then go ahead and open up a web browser tab by clicking either of the
+s on the screen and selecting a Browser tab. If you navigate to
localhost:5000 in your browser, you’ll see “Hello, World!” in your browser!
