The article presents information on Chrome Dev Editor which was made available to developers in Google IO 2014 event. I played with it and checked various different capabilities. If you think I missed on one or more cool features, please feel free to shout. Also, created a sample AngularJS Hello World program. Following picture represents the following:
- Ability to clone GIT ptoject
- IDE Features: With ease that it presents to create & manage web resources, it gives a feeling of working with an IDE like Eclipse. Like IDE, One could CREATE A PROJECT and then do following:
- Add one or more files
- Add one or more folders (segregate styles.css, and js files in different folders)
- Import files
- Import folders
- Over and above all, RUN the project. This is the COOLEST FEATURE.
- One-Click Deploy: As one RUNs the project, the web app is opened on following URL, http://127.0.0.1:51792/<projectname>/index.html
- Clone Git Project: One could clone git project absolutely easily by just making use of project GIT URL. I tested with https://github.com/defunkt/dotjs.git and it downloaded entire project and made it ready for work. I right-clicked on the project and found that following could be done from within the editor:
- Create branch
- Switch branch
- Commit changes
- Push to Origin
- One-click Deploy to Chrome Web Store: The app could be easily deployed in the Chrome Web Store with just one-click.
- Deploy to Mobile: One could deploy the web app on mobile with one click deploy. This is also very cool feature that could provide one more reason to work with this IDE.
- Get started quickly with Google Web Projects: One could get started with google projects such as following in no time without need for any setup.
- Dart (http://www.dartlang.org)
- Polymer-project( http://www.polymer-project.org)
To summarize it all, I am stuck to it and recommend the readers to give it a spin. Am sure, you would love it. My favorite of all the above features is Clone Git Projects. Let me know what’s yours favorite.
