Opinions on Ideone.com and it's features

Posted 14 December 2013 - 07:57 PM

I was looking around for an online class to take for C++. I was at codecademy looking at their course when they redirected me to Ideone.com for running the supplied starting code. So I thought I would take a look at it.

Ideone.com said:

Ideone is an online compiler and debugging tool which allows you to compile source code and execute it online in more than 60 programming languages.


As I got deeper into the IDE I knoticed that it can do 60 different languages ( accuracy unknown ) so I started with what I know and set it to PHP and wrote a small script to do some testing. I noticed real quick that it's returned errors are weak at most.

I was wondering if anyone has tried any other languages on it or tried it at all.

If so what did you think?
Was it a good experience?
Is it accurate with other languages error codes?

Anything you would like to add would be great.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I use it to test small samples of code, if I don't feel like booting up my IDE and running it on my machine. I also use it to test code snippets for which I don't have the software installed (more for obscure or non-mainstream languages). Overall, I'm pretty happy with it.

Thank you for the links macosxnerd101, I didn't even search for any topics.

I use it quite often, in a similar way to mac. That is, to quickly run small bits of code in different languages.

I wouldn't expect the error messaging to be that good. For the small code that I would run this isn't too important. It either runs or doesn't run! ;) To debug I just print-out a few variables (or delete the lines that don't work, he, he!). For any more substantial code I would boot-up an IDE such as NetBeans.

BTW for small bits or PHP I also use http://writecodeonline.com/php/ It works for JS as well.

There is one I've just encountered called compileonline which has lots of languages, but I've not used it. But, of course, there are lots of these editors:

There is a scripted editor, mainly for JS, which I had a tiny bit of input into ;). Works with node.js.
