Online editors like plunkr and klipse not only let you share your code, but they let you experiment with code in a different environment from your current project. They allow you to just dump code out and try things and hack away parts and refactor and completely throw it out if you need to. Sometimes I like to do this, and I think it is especially useful for learning clojure, playing around with core functions and data structures, and you can even easily import other libraries into your web project environment! Of course this doesn't replace git, leiningen, intellij, or webpack, the command shell, etc..., but I really do think these live web editors are great little tools that can help when developing applications in addition to being an awesome way to show some code on a blog page.
You can replace the value of the src attribute to any plunkr URL to display it!
