The Jade schematic entry and simulation tool is a work in progress, but you're welcome to experiment!
Jade can be used either standalone or as embedded courseware in the edX framework. To use Jade locally in standalone mode, grab the jade.zip file, unzip it on your machine, change to the directory with the jade files and run
to start a basic HTTP server listening on port localhost:8000. You can access Jade at
In the standalone version of Jade, changes are saved to the local server as they're made. The saved state is for the particular .html file you accessed, so if you have several .html files for, say, different projects, their state will be stored separately. Next time you browse to the URL above, you'll be able to pick up your design where you left off.
Jade can be configured to display only certain simulation tools and parts. The default configuration in jade_standalone.html shows all available tools and parts libraries. You can also load parts libraries specific to an assignment, with schematics, icons and (read-only) tests that serve as template and test jig for a design problem.
