Features

WATCHES

Next-gen println to keep track of important values in your code. Just add a watch to an expression and the value will be streamed back to LT in real time.

INLINE EVALUTION

No more printing to the console in order to view your results. Simply evaluate your code and the results will be displayed inline.

OPEN SOURCE

Developer tools should be open source. Every bit of Light Table's code is available to the community because none of us are as smart as all of us.

MALLEABLE

Keymaps, behaviors, and Light Table's Behavior-Object-Tag engine means you can easily shape your IDE to whatever your work requires.

PLUGIN MANAGER

The plugin manager hooks into the central list of plugins so you don't have to go hunting all over the internet to find the ones you want.

POWERFUL EDITING

Light Table is a lightweight, clean, and sleek interface with all of the power and functionality you need and expect from your editor.

  • THE PROJECT

    When we released our first blog post about Light Table back in April of 2012, it was just a new concept for an IDE. Thanks to the community, our concept was pushed to become a reality. You all helped spread the word about the future of tools and made Light Table the most funded software technology project ever on Kickstarter.

    With 7,317 backers and over $316,000, we reached our stretch goal to include Python in our final release. It has been a humbling experience to see such an outpour of excitement, and we sincerely thank each and every one of you for your support.
