People have used RunKit to write tens of thousands of notebooks. We love calling attention to some of the cool ones that have been published. We'll kick off with a notebook that takes advantage of our latest feature, Endpoint.

Matt Gardner published a notebook that demonstrates running custom code to fulfill slash commands. Here's what it looks like:

Now you can use Slack to easily invoke your live, custom RunKit code.

Some ideas:

What is RunKit?

  • RunKit is an interactive playground for running Node.js in the cloud.
  • RunKit offers serverless functions with zero deploy time — prototype code changes in real time!
  • RunKit can be embedded in your tutorials and docs to make them interactive as seen on lodash.com, expressjs.com, and stripe.com.
