At Xata, we're committed to providing you with a versatile and powerful UI to interact with your data. That's why early on we built the Xata Playground, a web-based IDE that allows you to write code in TypeScript and SQL to query your data in Xata.
Today, we're excited to announce that we've expanded the Xata Playground to include Python. Now you can write code in Xata's Playground using Python, TypeScript, and SQL.
As a new hire that had just marked my first month at Xata, I opened a pull request with the first version of the Xata Playground. It was a very simple proof of concept that I wanted to show during our weekly team meeting.
The pull request introduced a monaco-editor where you could write TypeScript code and run it to see the results in a separate panel. The main goal was to allow users to experiment and try out our TypeScript SDK without having to install anything.
Both internally and with some early adopters, we noticed that it was something we had to invest in. We decided to iterate quickly over the proof of concept and release it as soon as possible. Just a month later, we launched the first version of the Xata Playground, and it has remained one of our most popular features ever since.
