  • Why did you build this? There's already x/y/z out there which does a better job
    I built it to get familiar with AngularJS & Webpack (having built SPAs with other tools before).

  • Aren't there horrible security implications with all the user-supplied JS?
    Probably. Of course it doesn't let you do anything you can't already do with the Chrome developer window... That said, there's a TODO for executing the user data handlers using a WebWorker.

  • Why did you use AngularJS when there's Angular2/React/HotNewThing2000?
    Because I set out to learn Angular1.x.

  • Why did you do things from scratch rather than using Bootstrap/library-xyz?
    Because it's a pet project and I get to do what I want.

  • Why aren't you using SASS/Babel/build-chain tool xyz?
    Because I wanted to keep things as simple as possible

  • Why doesn't it have feature x/y/z?
    Because it's a pet project built in my free time. If there is interest in the project then perhaps I'll consider improving it in the future.
