Want to tinker with some code or see how a basic app is built? Glitch has a bunch of projects you can dive into, look under the hood and even remix to suit your own needs.

The site, built by the folks who developed Trello, features a Node.js JavaScript-compatible programming environment for you to play around in. You can run your creations instantly without having to set anything up on a server or on your own computer.

There are a number of bots, hardware integrations, games and programming tools for you to check out. Plus, you can collaborate on a project in real-time with other developers and see their changes as they make them.

In addition to fiddling with the code on the site itself, you also import and export projects from GitHub and download them as well. Oh, and there’s a dark theme too.

Try it for yourself by heading to Glitch’s site.
