Edit your application in the browser with Bespin

Bespin is a Mozilla Labs experiment on how to build an extensible web code editor using HTML 5 technology. The play bespin module allows you to edit all the application sources directly in the browser using bespin.

For now it’s just a proof of concept. However we think that we could create an excellent — possibly the best — play IDE directly in the browser using bespin as the main component for the source code editor:

Enable Bespin for your application

In any application, just add this line to the conf/application.conf file:


At application start time, you should see this message:

00:21:45,192 INFO  ~ Module bespin is available (.../play/modules/bespin)

Now open bespin in your browser at http://localhost:9000/bespin
