Thus, Mozilla will let us “play” with this simple editor and basic html / css that have provisions for people who have no knowledge about web programming and thus can create their own site based on pre-established themes available to users.
What is really remarkable is that thimble requires no registration or any application to start “playing” with HTML code and immediately see the changes taking place in the page because the preview window that is joint to the code.
Once you have created your website, and before sharing – of course – Thimble has a basic debugging option that is responsible for reviewing the code language and in some way or another cleaning. In this way, you teach your friends the design of your new website as a programmer.
Along with the release of Thimble, the advantage of Mozilla also do a refresh to webmaker site, which is the one that meets this set of tools related to web programming.
