Link: Google releases Project IDX, its next-gen AI-centric browser-based IDE, in open beta, and says that 100,000+ developers tried the service in invite-only phase (Frederic Lardinois/TechCrunch)

That’s why we built project IDX, a multi-platform development experience that makes building applications fast and easy. Project IDX makes it really frictionless to get going with your preferred framework or language with easy-to-use templates like Next.js, Astro, Flutter, Dart, Angular, Go and more.” With this update, Google is adding an integration with the Google Maps Platform into the IDE, helping add geolocation features to its apps, as well as integrations with the Chrome Dev Tools and Lighthouse to help debug applications. Soon, Google will also enable deploying apps to Cloud Run, Google Cloud’s serverless platform for running front- and back-end services. #
