This is the world's first node-based website programming IDE. It's a free service (premium versions are coming soon, but the free version will always exist) and it's really easy to use.
This service is for anyone who has wanted to learn programming or scripting but has found it too difficult or time-consuming. Purenode is the easiest way to have full scripting-level control without having to learn a language. If you can use a mouse, you can program using Purenode.
But don't be fooled: Purenode is also a tool for seasoned programmers. Even if you use one of the latest website frameworks, such as Ruby on Rails, Merb, or Zend, you could spend hours or even days making simple sites. And a Content Management System (CMS), such as Joomla or Wordpress, can be very difficult to actually get working. Installing extensions for additional functionality is an added pain. And if you want to create your own extensions, prepare to spend hours pulling your hair out just trying to learn the framework. For seasoned developers, Purenode is the mecca of Rapid Application Development and prototyping. In minutes you can have a fully-functional website.
And it keeps getting better. Purenode runs on the Google App Engine, meaning your applications have the reliability and speed of Google's infrastructure. Finding free hosting is hard enough as it is... but Purenode offers free hosting on the cloud!
The only downside is that is you want a custom template, you'd have to make it yourself. But heck, most people still remember HTML and CSS from the good ol' days of Myspace, so this isn't really a problem. And the proprietary template system is well-documented on the website, with two sample templates to mess with.
