JavaScript online editors
JavaScript is the way more popular nowadays. Most newbie Programmers are learning JavaScript. Why? Because it is easy to learn and really powerful language to build amazing stuff. By the way, it is also getting popular in the back-end development with NodeJS.
You can code from your browser, without installing an IDE or editor. And in this post, I will give you the most popular JavaScript online editors and IDE's list.

1) CodePen
Code Pen. Online JS editor
This is one of the best Online editors you can find on the web. First of all, you can test your code without registering and paying.
Also, you can create a free account and share your projects with other developers out there. Add HTML, CSS and JS code to the editor, customize it and run.
The cool thing is that it has a feature to add famous libraries with one click. You can add your own libraries simply adding the link to it.
Another cool feature is that you can change the preprocessor(If you are not a newbie, you will get the thing).
At least I wanna speak little about Pro feature available there for the low price. With Pro account, you can create a private project.
It has so many features, just open it up and explore it.

2) JSFiddle

This is yet the popular JS online editor or IDE, whatever you call it(It depends on your needs).
Wanna create an account and share your projects, well go ahead and create one for free.
Don't need an account but still want to share the project, you can do that without any problem.
The thing I like about this site is simplicity. You can use the cool stuff available there with simple clicks.
You can add libraries to your project. Make the code easy to read with its "Tidy" feature. Change the template of the editor and you can even embed it on your website.

3) JS Bin

The most important thing that I like is "autocomplete" feature, yeah really it exists. Cool right?
Choose between light and dark themes, change the font size if it's too small or too big for you. Undo and Redo changes.

5) AWS Cloud9
Cloud9 online IDE from Amazon
Cloud9 is powered by Amazon. This is another level of online IDE. You can work on a project with the team. The IDE is created for companies to work on a project at the same time in real time. Well if you are familiar with Visual Studio IDE then you know that you can divide the work between team members and code in the same project at same time. So the same thing is possible with Cloud9 online IDE.
I suggest this one if you are planning to develop an app in "high" level.

6) CodeAnywhere
Code Anywhere online IDE
This is the same as previous one, it has a feature to work on a project with a team. It has integrated Terminal Console, for example, to connect via SSH. And you can edit your code remotely(FTP, SFTP and even DropBox and Google Drive).
It allows you to code in some other popular programming languages.

SourceLair online IDE
SourceLair includes pretty much everything you need to develop such a nice app. You can add back-end code to your project because it supports some database types such as Mysql, PostgreSQL etc.

9) Plunker

It is easy as JSFiddle. It includes all libraries you need to code in JS.
The best thing about this that I want to mention, is that you can share your project on Github directly from online IDE. Just connect your Github account and commit your code changes.
