<h1>About</h1>
<p><a href="/">JS Bin</a> is a webapp specifically designed to help JavaScript and CSS folk test snippets of code, within some context, and debug the code collaboratively.</p>
<p>JS Bin allows you to edit and test JavaScript and HTML (reloading the URL also maintains the state of your code - new tabs doesn't). Once you're happy you can save, and send the URL to a peer for review or help. They can then make further changes saving anew if required.</p>
<p>The original idea spawned from a conversation with another developer in trying to help him debug an Ajax issue. The original aim was to build it using Google's app engine, but in the end, it was <a href="http://ejohn.org">John Resig</a>'s <a href="http://ejohn.org/apps/learn">Learning app</a> that inspired me to build the whole solution in JavaScript with liberal dashes of jQuery and a tiny bit of LAMP for the saving process.</p>
<p>It took me the best part of 4 hours to develop - so if it's shaky around the edges, let me know!</p>
<p><em>This webapp was built by <a href="http://remysharp.com">Remy Sharp</a> (<a href="http://twitter.com/rem">@rem</a>) of <a href="http://leftlogic.com">Left Logic</a>. <a href="http://leftlogic.com/contact?message=Found%20through%20jsbin.com">Please get in touch</a> if you're interested in working with me.</em></p>
