    Pros: 

    Great integration of hosting, editing and sharing features

    Cons: 

    No official support (yet) for custom DNS

    We integrate with Glitch so that people can use Botkit without understanding how to set up hosting, dns, SSL, and other jargony, complicated stuff. It is super easy to integrate with, provides a great experience for users, and is also FUN!

    Pros: 

    Incredibly fast prototyping and learning

    Cons: 

    Nothing comes to mind

    It was love at first site.

    Glitch really is an amazing place to build, prototype, and learn. It is extremely powerful despite the retro feel. Don't be fooled, it can probably do what you want it to do, and then some.

    I am excited to keep learning and building out projects on Glitch. I hope others can too.

If you have an API, and want to make it easy as heck for people to try it, Glitch for Platforms is a fantastic solution. We've been using it at Wistia (https://glitch.com/wistia) to help folks get started with our Player API and such, and love it. (Not to mention using it in our own prototyping and troubleshooting, which it's also excellent for!)

@mrdavidjcole Thanks for the kind words Dave! We created Glitch for Platforms because Developer Relations is such a vital part in helping people work with and succeed with APIs, but so much of the industry still treats it like an afterthought. Thankfully, innovative companies like Slack, Facebook, Botkit, Algolia and of course, Wistia, are using our range of tools that help everyone who does Dev Rel.
Josh Dzielak@dzello · Developer Relations Lead, Algolia
The Algolia DevRel team is super excited for Glitch! There isn't a place in our dev funnel we haven't thought about using it yet. Big props to the Glitch team who has consistently impressed us with how fast they're building product and how attentive they are to our requests. The bar for great API developer experience is about to leap forward.

Huge fan of Glitch, super interesting product, wonderful vibe and so much value for anyone who wants to code, or those of us who hate dev environments.

@dzhao Thanks! Yes, for sure. My personal favorite is https://glitch.com/edit/#!/twitt..., a template for making Twitter bots, which was remixed by Reyner to make a handy tool for viewing tweetstorms (https://glitch.com/edit/#!/tweet...), which was then remixed to create https://glitch.com/edit/#!/bitly..., a tool to get the bit.ly click stats from tweets when it was discovered that Trump was using a free bit.ly account. But there are plenty more on our community site: https://glitch.com
