We’re excited to launch Codecademy Workspaces, a new way for learners to build freely on Codecademy!
What are Workspaces?
Workspaces are an online integrated development environment, otherwise known as an IDE. They enable learners to write code and work on projects right from the browser. Learners will not need to worry about setting up local environments on their own computers and can get straight to building! Each Workspace is a file directory. Note that this feature is still in Beta.
How should I use Workspaces?
You may want to use Workspaces for:
- Tinkering, experiment, and practice with code
- Continue to build off of what you’ve learned in your lessons and projects
- Build projects on your own from scratch
How can I provide feedback?
Please fill out a 1 min survey here.
Are workspaces available for everyone?
Workspaces are only available for Pro learners for now. If you cancel your subscription, you will no longer be able to access Workspaces. Your workspaces will still be there if you become a pro user again!
What frameworks and languages are available with Workspaces?
We currently offer HTML/CSS/JS and Python but have plans to add workspaces for all the languages taught on the Codecademy platform in the near future.
How many workspaces am I allowed to create?
As many as your heart desires
Who can see my Workspace code?
For now, your Workspace code is private to only you. We will be releasing a feature in the near future to enable you to share your workspace code with others.
What is a Beta feature?
A Codecademy Beta feature refers to a feature that is newly launched that is still being iterated on. During the Beta phase, we encourage learners to submit any feedback they have about the feature so that we can continuously improve.
