Maintainability Test Coverage Build Status Coding with Chrome

Coding with Chrome is an Educational Development Environment built around two core philosophies:

  1. Offer a stand-alone, offline app experience which allows people anywhere to learn how to build useful computer programs:
    • A basic IDE able to support real programming work
    • A tutorial system that poses a challenge, checks the solution and provides feedback.
  2. Allow educators to put together a custom curriculum made up of various components like:
    • input languages (blockly, javascript, coffeescript)
    • output modules (turtle graphics, javascript output, connected robots)
    • Flexible UI where elements can be easily added, modified or removed
    • Tutorial engine for self-learning
