UNMAINTAINED (alternatively, try code-server)

Wcode is a rich code editor which runs inside a browser. It's totally inspired on Visual Studio Code, and also uses Monaco-editor as it's core engine for providing a rich experience. It is being developed with Node.js + Express + React.

It was born on a particular necessity of using such software on any kind of platforms, which is not the case of VSCode (only runs in x64 Desktop OSes), by taking inspiration on this article to produce some alternative kind of software to run in platforms like ChromeOS, Android, Raspberry PI, etc.
