On the SvelteKit team, we've fantasized for years about being able to build fully interactive learning material for full stack frameworks.
With WebContainers it went from 'impossible' to 'easy' almost overnight.
As a team working on educational products, StackBlitz WebContainers has been an invaluable tool for us. The ability to embed full-stack applications with customisable, interactive coding environment directly into our products has greatly enhanced the learning experience for our users.
Every PR, every npm library maintainer, every devtool company with a Node.js SDK, can benefit from this!
I have worked with Web container API for a couple of weeks at Scrimba to make a pooc of backend support. And I can say it's a solid piece of technology. Things just work, and it's also quite fast. I'm super excited about the GA since it will unlock so much opportunities for OSS projects and the industry at large.
The WebContainer API is a landmark on the way we think docs. Creating interactive docs and snippets just became so much more feasible! With Server-side code running on the browser, setting up a playground to securely learn Node.js SDKs and compilers became feasible and even fun!
WebContainers represent a fundamental shift in what is possible in the browser. I'm incredibly excited about the potential this tech unlocks, from secure, browser-based development environments to highly interactive educational content.
For such a powerful piece of tech I was so impressed by how clear to use the API is. Also running WebContainers inside WebContainers had me 🤯
At re:tune, we have been building the missing frontend for GPT-3, on a mission to empower everyone to build AI-first software at the speed of thought. WebContainers set the stage for our AI-native IDE - with a copilot that can not only read and write code, but can also understand and operate in the full runtime context across server and client!
Running chess in a terminal, running a terminal in the browser, check mate!
