Codebender Shuts Down | Hackaday

Codebender.cc was a cloud based mostly IDE for Arduino enhancement. It was manufactured for hackers by a couple of fellows in Greece. However, while they observed some major achievements, they have been under no circumstances capable to change it all the way into a viable business.

By November 31st Codebender.cc will be wholly shut down. They guarantee users that the site will be in read-only mode for as long as the end of the calendar year, but for a longer period if the traffic justifies it. Codebender created it all the way to 10,000 monthly active end users, but hosting and administration overshadowed this success to the tune of 25,000 dollars a month. Not so substantially as much as businesses go, but with no revenue it’s far more than sufficient to shut down a web-site. Their organization system aimed to tailor their companies for certain chip producers and other companies but those specials never ever came collectively.

It is a pity, we had been excited to see if Codebender could go on to mature. They were undoubtedly performing some genuinely attention-grabbing things like distant code upload. As the feedback on the website display, quite a few buyers, especially educators and Chromebook end users, cherished Codebender — your code isn’t stuck on one personal computer and where there was a browser there was an IDE.

Two paid services will remain (setting up at $10/month) at addresses with distinct TLDs. But the article does point out that the Codebender venture begun as Open up Source. Their GitHub repo isn’t a very clear path for rolling your own, but if you do manage to hack together a working Codebender implementation we’d really like to listen to about it.
