Is the online editor equivalent to the desktop editor?

I’m a high school teacher who wants to introduce GDevelop to 13 year old students. Unfortunately, our students only have Chromebooks which is why a browser-based editor is a requirement.

I’ve read some old-ish treats saying that the online editor is more like a demo. I’m am wondering if this is still the case.

So my question is: is the online editor of good enough quality for game development of high school students? And what limitations should I be aware of? Or is it basically the same as the desktop editor by now?

Thank you in advance!


I am happy to confirm that MANY updates have happened to the web editor. It is VERY close to the desktop client. The only thing missing at this point is support for local exports or projects, as far as I know.
