running code snippets in browser

  [vote for,

If people place code examples like small matlab or python snippets, or maths equations etc...

It would be nice to have a small button to run the snippet.

Is this a how to in python ? https://pythonspot....plugin-with-python/
There is stuff out there. [popbottle, Oct 18 2015]

No need for plugin. Works in any browser http://lmgtfy.com/?q=online+ide

Python, JavaScript and other programming language snippet runner. Runs in the cloud [chronological, Jun 07 2022]


       can't argue with that.. of course a little googling would have come up with a Python browser plugin. not sure about the matlab.

       It's doable - you can go to sites where that sort of thing happens.

       //you can go to sites where that sort of thing happens// There's a phrase that seldom bodes well.

       //JavaScript just runs on a page, what's the button for ?//   

       I'm not sure what to make of that. There's tonnes of javascript sitting around in buttons waiting to be clicked on.
But anyway, I think the idea was that it would be for other languages, like python- and arbitrary, user-entered code - so at the sites I mentioned presumably either there's an emulator on the client, or it gets sent to a server.

       More often than not, these snippets are not runnable code; that is to say they're usually incomplete. Maybe a block of code to illustrate how something is done, with some obvious variable names, but no declaration or initialization of those variables.
