Ben Lisbakken, a chap who I had the pleasure to work with at Google, has done a really nice job creating a Google Ajax API Playground, an area that allows you to touch and feel the APIs in real-time:
Since everyone likes to set up their environment differently, I made the three major sections (pick, edit, run) moveable and resizable, and the run section can pop-out to a new window. And what kind of Googler would I be if I didn’t include a search bar to let you find samples by name, tags or category?
At Google we strongly believe in open source, so this code is under an Apache 2.0 license and uses open source libraries and tools: jQuery, jQuery UI, App Engine, YUI Compressor, and CodeMirror. If you want to use the framework to show off your own code samples, please feel free to use it! Adding new demos is simple–find it here on Google Project Hosting and learn about adding samples.
Very nice indeed!
