This link will create a new webstrate using the most recent prototype available in the GitHub repository of Codestrates v2. A prototype is a ZIP file containing the HTML and assets of a webstrate. For more information visit the Webstrates documentation on creating webstrates with prototypes.

Use on Your Own Webstrates Server #

Offline Use: While Codestrates can run on a local Webstrates server, internet access is required by Codestrates to download the Webstrates Package Manager script and the Codestrates packages on first use. While this script and these packages are in the browser cache, Codestrates can also be used offline.
