InstaCode is a desktop application for both Windows and Mac that bundles a Linux virtual machine, the Brackets text editor, an SSH client, Git integration, and specialized tools for the Meteor web framework.
Most online tutorials assume readers are using Linux or Mac and are already familiar with common terminal commands. In reality, most beginners have Windows and have never used the terminal before.
InstaCode allows these people to easily set up a development environment with a one-click installer and get right to the fun part of programming. The current version includes the Meteor web framework and the idea could easily be expanded to packages with different languages and frameworks.
InstaCode is the easiest way to get your computer set up for coding web apps. We hope that making it easier for programmers to get started will get more people into coding!
