Coding on the run using an online IDE

I`ve stumbled upon this helpful developer`s tool and I decided to share to anyone of you who occasionally have to code while travelling. It is a free online IDE with a variety of useful features. The service is called ShiftEdit and is suitable for coding in PHP, Ruby, Python, Perl, HTML, CSS and JavaScript. You can login with your google or facebook account or register a separate account there. Some of the most useful features of the service are:

  • Code themes
  • Revision history
  • Access and publish files through (S)FTP and DropBox
  • Realtime debugging
  • Find/Replace functionality
  • Source formatting

And a lot more. The tool is very very helpful and can easily replace your normal IDE. There is also a Chrome Extension that allows users to work offline as well.
