This is extremely useful. Is there a way to invoke the editor on demand rather than having it as a new-tab replacement.

@labnol Thanks! Not right now, but I'll look into that as an alternate option to start the playground.

@labnol I'll second that request. I use Opera, so I can use Chrome Extensions, but any that work with the new tab page, don't work in Opera because it obviously has a completely different new tab mechanism.

Update: Web Maker 2.0 is here: https://www.producthunt.com/post... Hey PH-ers! Presenting my new app - "Web Maker" to you! "Web Maker" is a chrome extension that I made out of my own need to have a way to quickly do web experiments whenever and wherever I wanted to...even when there was no Internet connectivity. Sure there are apps like Codepen, JSFiddle, CSSDeck. But they all need you to be online. Plus they sometimes tend to be slow when you quickly need to tinker with some code to show to a colleague or verify a reduced test case. And so I came up with 'Web Maker' that works just like any other web playground, but it works offline! And how do you access it? Simply open a new tab in Chrome - that is it! It has features like downloading your work as HTML file, continue editing on CodePen and much more. Hope this app help others save time and do some really cool web experiments, whenever and wherever they want :) Appreciate suggestion, comments, feature requests.

@hoangloi You mean it shouldn't replace new tab and instead open on trigger?

@chinchang457 no. I just want after install new tab is not replace default tab. it's can be a option better than a coercion. just thinking :)

@hoangloi New tab replacement is now a configurable setting in Web Maker! You can always open it using the extension icon in the top right :)

As an update: Web Maker now supports a whole lot of preprocessors like Jade, Markdown, SCSS, LESS, ES6 and CoffeeScript!
