Unlike online REPL tools and standalone playgrounds, Quokka allows you to execute your code right in your editor allowing you to avoid context switching while benefiting from your familiar editor environment and editor extensions. You can also import and execute files and modules directly from your project.
Live Execution and Results
Code runs immediately as you type, on unsaved changes; no need to do anything manually or switch context. Error messages are displayed right next to the code that caused them. Console logs and identifier expression values are displayed inline as well.
Indicators in the gutter of your code editor are constantly updated in realtime to display code coverage so you can quickly see which lines of code are the source of an error, which are fully covered, only partially covered or not covered at all.
Value Explorer allows non-primitive runtime values to be viewed and explored in an easy-to-navigate real-time treeview. This feature is great for exploring larger objects and makes debugging easier and faster. Opened paths / values can be copied directly to the clipboard.
Live Comments and Values
Show and copy expression values by selecting them in your editor or with editor commands, accessible using keyboard shortcuts. A special comment format can also be used to evaluate any expressions and includes the ability to measure code execution times.
Project Files Import
Import any files from your project into your Quokka file. Quokka will watch project files for changes and automatically update when dependent files change. Babel or TypeScript may be used for imported files compilation.
Quick Package Install
Quickly install any node package, without switching away from your editor, and without having to type the package name. When you install, choose whether to install just for the active Quokka session or for your entire project.
170,000+ individual users and companies all over the world have increased their productivity and output by using Quokka.js.
Install the Quokka.js plugin and see the output of your JS with every keystroke!

I found this extension on VSCode called Quokka.js. Instead of having to check functions in a console, anything I console.log will appear right in my editor. Game CHANGER. And yes, I know it's a Saturday night. Also, Quokka is the name of the CUTEST ANIMAL ALIVE pic.twitter.com/2poe9aynKN— Leya Hatoum (@leyahatoum) January 27, 2019
I found a cool VS Code extension called Quokka.js created by @wallabyjs. It lets you see the console.log statements in your IDE.
Everyone learning JS should check it out. pic.twitter.com/dR8VAU7r3U
Guys! Guys! You should try Quokka.js, so it's no need to write debugger in your node!— fauzial (@fauzial_) December 29, 2018

Introduced myself to Quokka JS extension on Visual Studio Code Editor so that I can get the live feedback of the Developer Console inside the editor. It's very helpful for Typescript and writing JS logic.#365CodingPhaseChallenge #CodingPhase #TheCodingWay pic.twitter.com/Z00hZDpYWo— William Randolph (@William52821032) December 7, 2019
Quokka.js, hands down. Couldn’t live without it! https://t.co/hR4v9agrot— Luke Bayliss (@lpbayliss) August 14, 2019
Dynamic programming? Performance testing? You must give #Quokkajs a try. Pro Edition is worth every cent. I'm cranking out quality code in a fraction of the time. I'm not associated w/ @wallabyjs. Just a fan.— Joel Palmer 🦀 (@joeldpalmer) March 6, 2019
⚡️ Tooling Tip: Quokka.js is an amazing extension that allows you to run code directly in your editor. I use it all the time to prototype or when I live code in presentations. https://t.co/HG5kVmYQ2T pic.twitter.com/AUHwQ3XC8h— Anton Gunnarsson (@Awnton) February 21, 2019

Still busy with functional programming at #freecodeCamp. By that I found a very usefull #JS plugin for #VisualStudioCode: #Quokka!
I'm using the free community edition and it's great!

My favorite scratchpad for code demos ;-) https://t.co/PuUl0xH3iI— Nick 🇪🇺 (@NickDinges) October 13, 2018
As I work more heavily with JS in VS Code, Quokka has become my favorite extension.https://t.co/WINT7Jm9fK— Doug Linley (@douglinley) September 27, 2018
Why having a short feedback loop when you can have an immediate feedback on your code? This I'm pretty sure, is how the future of programming looks like https://t.co/7TXTNAHfmR— Karl (@NiebuhrKarl) August 14, 2018
Quakka.js by @wallabyjs should be one of your editor (I use VS @code) extensions installed. It’s the best scratchpad tool out there when you’re manipulating and transforming data in #js. #webdev #SickPickhttps://t.co/LBwZI4yxxK— Sean Groff (@_SeanGroff) August 10, 2018
I keep finding uses for Quokka.js, like debugging production issues, as I continue exploring it. It's feedback cycle is awesome, take a peek at their Community edition to wet your appetite https://t.co/EAspFp2x9O . A big thank you to the @wallabyjs team... good work!— Cory Wheeler (@corywheeler1) June 1, 2018

Just installed https://t.co/Jx4BPQMNaz in VS Code. Probably the most useful extension I'll ever install.— Sunny Singh (@sunnysinghio) June 24, 2017
If you use VS Code as your IDE, check out Quokka. You're welcome :)https://t.co/UI0qdO2eaI— Justin Lowery (@cerebralideas) April 23, 2017
With quokka.js I can practice without needing to get out my editor... 😍😍😍— • Oly, O Nerd • (@olimpioadolfo) January 8, 2020
