An Online integrated development environment[1], also known as a Web IDE[2] or Cloud IDE[3], is a browser based integrated development environment. A online IDE can be accessed from a web browser, such as Google Chrome or Internet Explorer, enabling software development on an low-powered devices that are normally unsuitable. An online IDE does not usually contain all of the same features as a traditional, or desktop, IDE, although all of the basic IDE features, such as a Source code editor with syntax highlighting. Integrated Version control and Read–Eval–Print Loop(REPL) may also be included.

Online IDE's can be further categorised into professional and educational. Cloud9 IDE and being examples where Cloud9 IDE is part of the wider AWS offering, and the WeScheme Online IDE is specifically designed to support education.[4]
