Scopic Play: Everything you need to know

Scopic HUB Team January 1, 2023 0 comments

Scopic Play is an experimental in-browser WordPress that runs without a PHP server thanks to the magic of WebAssembly. In easy words, you can run WordPress even without installing it. You will get all the features backed with WordPress 6.1.1.

Why is Scopic Play useful?

 Scopic Play is a building block that can allow you to:

  • Runnable code snippets in your documentation or course
  • Plugin and theme demos in a private WordPress instance where the user is already logged in as an admin
  • Learn WordPress for new users & students
  • Debug your WordPress codes, custom plugins & themes
  • Test all the plugins downloaded from Scopic HUB
  • Check out the WordPress core features bundled with the latest version

What’s so special in Scopic Play?

WordPress is famous for its “5-minute Installation” but what if we make it “No installation required”? You don’t have to install WordPress to check the core features or just a few things. Get rid of installing a demo WordPress site with Scopic HUB.

Try out WordPress or any plugins or even themes on the go. You don’t need to set up the hosting or domain to get the vanilla WordPress version. For the kickstart, you can start out with a few themes. All you have to do is simply click on <image> available on the right top of the Scopic Play browser.
