    I thought I did a thread about this before, but a while back there was Kickstarter for a new kind of IDE:



    Documentation and instant feedback (REPLs are a joy) are treated as something that should be available immediately in the development environment.

    More information: http://www.chris-granger.com/2012/04/12/light-table---a-new-ide-concept/

    It's been in pretty steady development for a while and it was recently open sourced: http://www.chris-granger.com/2014/01/07/light-table-is-open-source/

    Bonus: Bret Victor - Inventing on Principle Talk



    It walks through this same kind of concept with building a game.

    I can't wait to try this environment out more, and I hope they add more languages to the support list.
