3.1
11 November 2019

Easy way to write and run code.

Overview

CodeRunner, an advanced, highly flexible, and easy-to-use programming editor, supports a large number of languages, and delivers big IDE features while remaining lightweight and clutter-free.

CodeRunner can run code in 23 languages out-of-the-box, and can be easily extended to run code in any other language. Notable features include debugging with breakpoints in lots of languages, IDE-level code completion, and lots of other high-end features making it easier than ever to write and work with code.

What's new in CodeRunner

Version 3.1:
This is a minor bugfix release. Notable changes include:
  • Fixed an issue preventing App Store migration from completing correctly.
  • Fixed an issue with debugging using gdb on macOS Mojave.
  • Changed the default debugger to Ildb instead of gdb for C, C++, and Go
  • Added the ability to show the full debugger log if the debugger fails to attach
  • Fixed an issue preventing the jQuery library from loading in some situations.
  • Dragging and dropping a file onto the console now properly escapes spaces and meta-characters in the file path.
  • Backward compatibility fixes for older versions of macOS.
  • General fixes and improvements.

The software is quite nice, but the constant battle to avoid installing macupdate desktop makes me question whether its worth bothering.

?? If you're logged in (or was in 2017), you should get just the original installer and no macupdate stuff whatsoever.

I was so hoping that there would be a little stick figure guy running around the screen replacing code elements as you type them ;)

My favourite code editor, it's simple. lets you run code and see the result in the editor and it syntax and code completion is very good. It is my go to editor for short python, BASH, scripts

A simple editor for all the programming languages I use .... which provides syntax highlighting and the ability to run the code and see the result in the editor all for a very low price. .. just buy it, well worth it.

First and foremost: Can an Admin please clean up the reviews here? There are 1 star reviews with just the content of "...", double posts as well as a reviewer who would like to take his 1 star rating back. this app is currently rated at 3 stars and it would be higher than 4 stars if somebody would remove fake, spam and wrong reviews. Thanks

CodeRunner is fantastic and just what i need. Im a computer science student that is in touch with many different programming languages. i dont want to download an IDE for every single one of them. Those programs are often larger than 4GB alone! Plus they do and manage a lot under the hood. this might be something you want when working exclusively with one language, but for someone who wants to learn how these languages work its very shady what IDEs do in the background.

CodeRunner is the best of both worlds by giving me not only syntax highlighting, but also code completion and also integrated compiling, while not creating any intransparent project files or tasks in the background. it feels very clean to use.

If that werent good enough it supports pretty much every major programming language you can think of, making it the only tool you need. You get all of this for a crazy cheap price of $15! Holy Crap! I mean the developer could sell this for $100 and it would still be worth the money!

Absolute recommendation!

For what it does, this is an amazing editor for the price, both in features and performance. I do wish it had Emmet, or a plugin model so that someone could add things like that.

I've only recently started using CodeRunner (v2.0.3) and I am very, very impressed. It is an excellent tool to help you quickly test out some code snippets - really and excellent scratchpad with added bonus of providing nice support for the languages I use (Python, Java, Perl). A steal for the price.

The current rating (1.5 stars) does by no way, in my opinion, represent this app correctly. The low reviews here talk about installation issues which are not necessarily faults of the app - and one review is repeated twice with 1/2 star (how MacUpdate?). I've been using since v1, v2 brings lots of new features like better code completion and better syntax hi-lighting - generally a thorough polish all-round. For me it's my go-to app to quickly create, test or debug chunks of code. For front-end web development it's got your back with HTML, Javascript, jQuery, Node,js, PHP and Bash support (as well as many others). It has a tabbed interface so you can compare files quickly. Console view for debug output. You can use TextMate themes for code colouring as you prefer as well as many view options for font preferences etc. Loads more options. All-in-all, a great tool for any developer.

I've purchased CodeRunner 1 from Mac App Store years ago, and the developer promised that I can purchase CodeRunner 2 with discount.

When I launch CodeRunner 2, it insists that my copy of CodeRunner 1 is invalid (how can it be ?) and suggests that I should re-download CodeRunner 1 from MAS. So I delete the original app only to find that I can't re-download CodeRunner 1 anymore! It had been completely removed from the store thus it can't be searched. I also tried to re-download from 'Purchased' tab but MAS keeps complaining there is an error. In the end, I've now lost CodeRunner 1, and still can't get discount price for upgrading CodeRunner 2! I know that $14.99 is not much, but it doesn't feel right!

Have submitted support request on developer's website and waiting for response. I will revert star ratings to 5 after this incident resolves. For anyone who is going to upgrade, DON'T DELETE CodeRunner 1.

Upgrade issue resolved. It seems Mac App Store is the source of problem. CodeRunner is a great tool, recommend for all coders.

Can anyone tell me how to revert star ratings here ?
