I’m thinking to build a small site to share snippets of code (I know nothing new about this), but with the reddit style. The snippets of code can be voted and built/executed (using docker). In the comments there could be modified versions enhanced by users.
I was thinking to start with the support for elixir, obviously. You post your code, the code you want to discuss about, this code is voted and can be changed and executed to see the output. And with the possibility of embedding the snippet in other pages.
It should have support to mix and dependencies (maybe not at the beginning but… I think it should).
My concern is about giving the ability of networking to the containers. I’ve seen that the elixir playground (anyone knows why is not online anymore?) wasn’t enabling networking features. Then obviously the other concern is about the cost of the servers needed, but I could limit the number of possible executions.
Is it something would be interesting/useful to this community (and maybe other dev communities)?
