A friend (and fellow clj-sandbox author) gave me access to his remote server a while back, and he has given me a subdomain to deploy TryClojure on, so you guys can play with it. You can check it out at tryclj.licenser.net.
If you have any ideas for colors, toss them at me. I've been fighting with myself over colors all night.
The source is here: http://github.com/Raynes/tryclojure, and it's written in 102 lines of Clojure, including some inline JS and not including the CSS file. I'm quite proud of it, because it actually works (!) and it's my first web project.

I'm happy you like it, and if you're interested in Clojure, I just wrote this earlier today: http://www.dreaminco...al-programming/
I might write a Clojure tutorial for right here on DiC soon, since a couple of people have asked me to.
EDIT: After thinking, I can probably do something with an iframe to keep from having to reload the whole page.

UPDATE: Site is back up. def* stuff has been disabled until this situation is remedied, and automatic scrolling to the bottom of the output div isn't working quite right since I added syntax highlighting. Working on that one as well.

Besides the new design, I'm also using Chris Done's jquery-console JQuery plugin, which is what Chris used on tryhaskell.
Due to some bugs in clj-sandbox that will be fixed as soon as possible, the REPL isn't quite as functional as a typical REPL. It will be once the bugs are fixed though.

I just deployed a new release. This one enables def, and also has a brief, and totally incomplete first-cut tutorial that I'll start more serious work on tomorrow. This thing is really turning out.

Error handling and such have been greatly improved. The tutorial has been rather stagnant in progress lately, because I've been busy with other things. That will change soon.
A person from the Clojure community liked TryClojure enough that he took the time to make a Google Chrome extension that uses it to launch an REPL in your browser without even bothering to visit the site. It's pretty awesome: https://chrome.googl...anopflcfdaennle

Over time, the development of Try Clojure stagnated. It remained that way for several months. Very recently, I posted a call to action on my blog to try to get contributors with skill sets that could complement mine.
For the most part, the call to action has been successful. The website has been completely redesigned by a contributor to be more colorful and look more like the other try<language> sites (I model mine after http://tryhaskell.org). Check it out.
Besides that, I've also developed a brand new sandboxing library called clojail, and Try Clojure's sandbox is much improved.
In any case, enjoy.
