Places to practice code, preferably project based?


If I were to practice writing some code in textEdit on the Mac, how would I run this to see what it looks like/is it correct?

Also, I feel like I'm learning a lot on Treehouse, but would like the opportunity to practically apply some of these skills (for now very basic HTML, CSS and Javascript). I have heard about Elevator Saga and Codewars, but would love to hear about any other suggestions.


Instead of textEdit I would download an enhanced editor like Atom


then search the packages and install 'Live Server'


for seeing what code looks like

Regarding practising HTML/CSS/Javascript https://codepen.io/pens/# is a great resource.

While there aren't any projects as such you can find a pen that is interesting & edit it live, or use it as a starting point for your own project idea by forking it.
