I bought CodeRunner when I started getting into Java programming classes. In class, we used jGRASP to code & compile, and I wanted something to use at home for assignments.

While jGRASP is also available for Mac, I wanted something a little easier to use and a lot cleaner, and after a quick Mac App Store search, I found what I was looking for -- CodeRunner.

For $10, this app can't be beat. While I haven't tried out any other languages other than Java, CodeRunner neatly lays out my code and also suggests different things as I type. It does everything I need it to, in a very clean manner.

Bottom line, if you're getting into programming, this is the app you need to have. Best part, it's only $10!

One more thing. The site listed for the developer seems to be outdated on MacUpdate. Here's the current link to check out more features before you buy. http://www.krillapps.com/coderunner/

Also, the only reason I rated it 4.5/5 stars instead of 5/5 is because I wished there was an option to try before buying. Something like a 7 day trial from the developer's site would have been nice, although I understand this is a limitation of the Mac App Store. I don't regret my purchase, but I still like to try out programs instead of buying just based on high reviews.

CodeRunner is a brilliant app.
The only thing is missing is support for CSS3 and HTML5.

After using TextWrangler to learn Python in I wanted something a little more seamless/integrated so I bought CodeRunner. Couldn't be happier with CodeRunner.

You got lucky this time with your mac app store purchase. You were a bit hesitant to buy this app, from your comment below just three days earlier, but you got lucky on this ONE and it ended up actually being a good app for your needs.

Glad you went ahead and bought the app and it worked out, but just remember to stay vigilant and hesitant when buying MAS apps. For every one you buy that is useful you probably have bought 5-10 others that were a complete waste of money.

Thanks for coming back after your purchase to review the app, it helps every other MU members out tremendously.

Looks like a great program but without a demo there's no way I'd drop $10 when there's so many good alternatives out there. Need to be able to see why it's worth $10.

Looks interesting. It's too bad the App Store doesn't allow demos, because I'd prefer to try it before buying. Maybe the developer could release a free version that supports only one language?

I like this tool. Sure, there are a zillion other methods you can run and debug your code, but it's very simple to pop up Code Runner and jot away. It's very convenient and also has some formating niceties built in, such as code templates for new documents (per language), auto-closing of brackets, auto-indentation, code completions, syntax coloring, etc.

For anyone learning to program (like me), this is just awesome. I'm sure advanced programmers fins this usable from time to time as well.
