So I made this mathy thing – https://bonus.glitch.me/ – the contents of which aren’t relevant here but it turned out to be pretty amazing how you can play with the parameters of that function and watch the graph change in real time just by editing the code on Glitch. I know, old hat by now for Glitch fans.
But I’m wondering if anyone has a template for an app that has a text area that works exactly like the code editor in Glitch and updates the page in real time. Something like this little calculator app I just threw together – https://baby.glitch.me – except instead of a boring textarea it would be an embedded Glitch editor. So any number of people could edit it and every keystroke would display for everyone and persist.
In theory this should be easy for the Glitch devs to throw together (depending on how deep their dogfooding goes) since it’s a tiny subset of Glitch itself!
But if that’s not realistic, any other ideas for making a textarea act like the Glitch editor where it shows its live contents to everyone viewing the page?
