Handy Code Snippets
Add and manage files
Thimble works like a real web project, you can create, rename, delete and even upload your own files.
- Download a .zip of your project and view it from your hard drive
- Drag & drop files from your computer into Thimble
Turn the lights on and off
Thimble comes with a dark and light theme, so pick what's best for you. You can also change other options like the size of the text.
Follow & create embedded tutorials
Projects can have tutorials that help you (or your students) learn as they make changes to the projects.
