This is the best online code editor I've ever seen! Clearly a ton of thought and time went into it. :) Really nice way for me to quickly try out stdlib!

And I imagine it's great for new developers and less technical people that could get discouraged with the headache of local development. Myself included.

Pros:

Really cool and intuitive UI, easy token authentication, zero overhead

Cons:

Templates need descriptions so I know what they do

This is incredible! Great job to the whole team. I’ve never seen an easier way to build an API. The fact that it automatically comes with a fully managed and auto scaling deployment and the most beautiful docs is just 🤯😍

Hello Keith, congrats for the launch! Quick questions: do you plan to add scheduling abilities to the code editor? Also, could you add the ability to comment multiple lines? That's really frustrating and common to all online code editors I've been trying out like Auth0 extend 🙊

@hypervillain scheduling is only available via the command line right now, but we have it on the editor roadmap. I’ll look into adding multi-line commenting today. Give me a few hours :). Command + right bracket sufficient?

@hypervillain OK! Thanks for the feedback, we love listening to our developers and community. It took about 45 minutes, but I've added multi-line commenting as well as multi-line tab and tab reduction. Both tab and CMD+] is multi-line tab, Shift+Tab and CMD+[ are multi-line tab reduction, and I've added CMD+/ for multi-line commenting as you asked for. Try them out on https://code.xyz/?sample=t (Loads a sample project.) Hope you enjoy! Let me know if you run into any issues. :)

@hypervillain No problem! Fun fact: Code.xyz is itself running as a serverless API on StdLib (we have endpoints that generate the HTML/JS/CSS). So our development and iteration speed is ultra-fast. You can actually build Code.xyz on Code.xyz. :)
