Hi - yes, unfortunately the server had an issue so it would have affected everyone - first outage in years, but it's fixed now.
I was working on something and noticed I really miss the IDE
The IDE should work offline as it's a PWA app - although obviously the Inline C compiler won't. The thing that really messes it up though is the server accepting the connection but not responding, as then it's stuck waiting for a reply. If it just failed I think the IDE would keep working regardless.
... but yes, it's always nice to have the GitHub hosted version so there is a backup :)

Oh, thanks, that's even better, was always using browser and going to https://www.espruino.com/ide/ directly. So now I clicked install in url and have a desktop icon. Then disconnected from wi-fi, started it from the icon and it worked offline! That's good to know.
Yep - but also I believe just entering https://www.espruino.com/ide in the URL bar should work as well? Its what I do sometimes.
I could be wrong though - maybe that only happens if you have already added the desktop icon
espruino.com, forum and the IDE did not work for me in recent days. I wonder what happened, was it just me?
Anyway, I was working on something and noticed I really miss the IDE https://www.espruino.com/ide/ (+ InlineC compiler). Fortunately I already run the InlineC compiler locally and after some time I realized the IDE is also available directly at github site https://espruino.github.io/EspruinoWebIDE/ so that saved my day. But still I realized how online services affect usability and that there is no comparable alternative to the Web IDE for me. It is great that at least espruino.github.io was there. So this is a tip for others in case it happens again - try the github hosting. This is development version and does not share settings with espruino.com/ide but after redoing the settings it can work just fine.
