I’m liking what you’re all suggesting. Having no $ left in the budget, it looks like Codio.com is out.
Glitch.com looks promising. I like the code completion, especially for my new students who are more reticent working with code. I also like how you could import from a GitHub repo.
Unfortunately, VS Code has me spoiled. I know there are workarounds, but I am certain that with our District, they will frown upon Linux Apps feature and students putting them into developer mode.
I think that it all comes down to Repl.it for me because my understanding is that Repl.it will be supporting GitHub actions, and I plan on using them to automate the running of a Python package that will run an analysis on their projects.
Here’s a crazy thought: install the VNC viewer app on the chromebooks and install VNC servers on my machines at my school - we’ll see how that flies if I suggest it to my IT overlords.
