Beaker hosts websites from your device using peer-to-peer technology. It is a great tool for webdev without touching the command-line or setting up a server.
Educators. A Web dev classroom can skip teaching the command-line, git, or server setup. Students create their sites in-browser (or copy a template from the teacher) and do their development with the builtin tools. Dev Teams. If you’re looking for a fast way to share site prototypes in the office, Beaker is a great fit. You can quickly fork a site to make changes, then share the new URL with the team. Decentralizers. We may not have an out-of-the-box replacement for the big platforms yet, but if you’re the kind of person that’s into blockchains or greater access to open-source, you should check this out. Beaker uses a replacement for HTTP called the Hypercore Protocol which has its own hyper:// URL. That means you can’t load the sites on any browser (which is why Beaker still earns its title as an “experimental” browser). That makes Beaker a bit niche for now, but we’re pretty excited to expand that niche moving forward.
