Isn't this just a JS-based editor?

As for interactive examples, that would be "easy" with a sandbox.  The
usual caveats are that it won't be able to show off functionality
related to FS operations, FFI, GUI, and probably a few more.

(And BTW, the wiki will have such sandboxed evaluation -- my design is
that every wiki page is actually a module that gets evaluated to
produce the rendered text.)
