What is a CWC file?

A CWC file is a source code file created in Coding with Chrome, an educational integrated development environment (IDE). It contains JavaScript used to execute basic programs. Developers create CWC files in Coding with Chrome's Blockly and JavaScript code editors.

Coding with Chrome is a Google Chrome application that allows aspiring developers to learn the basics of coding. Novice developers can use Coding with Chrome's block-based development environment, Blockly, to create basic programs, while those who have graduated to a text-based development environment can write programs directly in JavaScript, Python, and CoffeeScript.

When a Coding with Chrome user creates a JavaScript-based program, Coding with Chrome saves the user's program in a CWC file. All programs that developers create in Blockly are saved in CWC files, as are all JavaScript-based programs that developers create in Coding with Chrome's text-based development environment.
