The Collaboratory

The Collaboratory is a browser-based IDE for ABS that offers an online, zero install version of the ABS toolchain. Use it to experiment with the language in a risk-free environment.

Load our ready-made examples or run your own ABS models. The editor has many features of an IDE, including showing you an outline of the code, and of course reporting syntax- and type errors.

The collaboratory also supports many of the analysis tools that we have developed, like COSTA and SACO.

A collaboratory instance is hosted online at Please use this instance responsibly, and consider running the collaboratory on your local machine.

To run a private local instance of the collaboratory, see Running a Browser-Based IDE.
