Lively - An Explorative Authoring Environment


Lively is a Web-based runtime and development environment for Web applications. It incorporates tools and techniques to be completely self-sufficient. Development with Lively Kernel is notably different from development in other environments. Instead of working on text files containing source code, programmers interact and modify objects that are shared in a Web-based object repository. The system allows for wiki-style editing so that developers can collaborate and share ideas. This enables the explorative creation of and interaction with active Web content.

Supported web browsers

The Lively Kernel is intended to run in every commercial web browser client with no plug-ins or installation whatsoever. However, because of differences in the underlying graphics and other capabilities of various web browsers, the user-experience may vary.
