CodeSandbox Live

CodeSandbox Live allows you to open up your sandbox for real time collaboration. You can simultaneously edit code, create files, move files and delete files. We also added Classroom mode, which allows you to define who can edit the code.

Vanilla Template

From day one we’ve always tied templates to a CLI. The main reason for this is that we want to keep sandboxes simple, you shouldn’t need to do any configuration to get started. I didn’t want to create a ‘Vanilla’ template because there was no way to create ‘vanilla’ web projects without configuration, until recently.

We now have support for the Parcel template, based on the Parcel bundler.
