Funded! This project was successfully funded on June 1, 2012.

Update #13

We've done it!

With more than 7000 backers, we broke the $300k mark to include Python in our final release. You've proven many of the naysayers wrong and I'm truly astounded by the support and excitement you've all shown. While I put up a blog post saying exactly that, I just wanted to reiterated here how amazingly grateful we are for the faith you've shown.

Very exciting times are ahead, I'm glad you'll be sharing them with us.

      I am also like Itai Raccah, I don't have any interest in the current programming languages (not even Python, tho I might look into it later).

      But I hope that one day Java (and perhaps C#) will be supported here.

      But the general concept of this program I feel is revolutionary, And thus me (a poor student) decided to give 50 USD to this project. (Which is alot for me at these times).

      I have no interested in the languages that are initially supported. But if you don't start anywhere, you don't get anywhere.
      I'm supporting this in hopes that Java will be supported one day.

      For me it was obvious that you will succeed! I'm looking forward to using your software for clojure development. :)

      That demo vid where you show Python (flask) development was like a wet dream... now it's a wet dream come true!

      I had a dream last night that this IDE included support for Objective-C. OH GOD WHY

      I'm hacking with Javascript, and I'll learn Clojure with this IDE. Congrats!

      I'm with Robert Kosek on this. I decided to support the project in the hope that it will have Ruby and/or Haskell support.

      Oh, and congratulations to this and the YC backing.

      I'm significantly more selfish than altruistic. while I'm totally impressed with where Chris' creativity has been able to take the Clojure community with Noir, Korma, and his other projects, I'm very much interested in all the things that Light Table could potentially unlock for me professionally and look forward to the opportunity and responsibility of being part of the cohort of professionals who will assist in testing and hopefully extending the functionality of the product from it's commercial inception.

      Congrats on the kickstart. Looking forward to getting to grips with this IDE, and seeing where you take it from here.

      Congratulations! Bravo for your seat at YC to! Rendez-vous at early beta.

      As Robert mentioned above, I too have backed in mainly for the hopes that lies in the future. This is an amazing idea, which could possibly be successful or fail miserably. While it sounds exciting, there's only one way to know. and hence the reason for me backing the project in the final hours.
      I wish a good luck to the team (also as you have a seat in YC now). Do let us know of any updates once you get there, and do communicate more often. Cheers.

      Ignore the naysayers. There have been few novel UX experiments (CodeBubbles we're looking at you!). You made a compelling demo of a technology that has obvious benefits for debugging, and may prove to be a wonderful asset for exploratory play.

      I hope you and your team stay vocal during the process; I'd certainly love to follow along as things move towards the betas. Congratulations! Oh, and python++

      This is awesome! I was sold with just javascript out of the gate, but python as well? Delicious! Can't wait for the early beta!

      C/C++, Java, HTML, PHP, Javascript please?

      Creator Robert Kosek on June 1, 2012

      I wasn't originally going to pitch in. I argued with myself about it not needing a platform for javascript development, because I do most of the complicated work in the browser console, and a lack of interest in the other languages. But I came back to my original point of wanting a platform like this for Ruby and for PHP, and decided that it was better to support Light Table in hope for the future.

      I wish you well Chris, and hope you and anyone else on the team achieve a smashing success.
