From time to time I test golang ideas here. The code editor is pretty simple and sufficient to the task. But then I was trolling the chrome webstore when I found this gem.

After clicking on the add button there was silence and not even a whimper. I was initially expecting to see a system icon or an app icon but neither were apparent.

I decided to point my browser to play.golang.org and there it was. Somehow the project replaced all the builtin goodness with some awesomeness.

It might still take some getting used to but it’s similar and simple enough. I jealous that I did not come up with this idea and now I need to reverse engineer it.
