I am looking for a Tex equivalent to Jsfiddle, which is for HTML, CSS, and Java. Here, you put the code, and run, getting the output in screen. More importantly, you can share it with a self generated link, without need of subscription, logging in, registering, etc. This is very popular in www.stackoverflow.com, as you can easily share a code, and others can use it. Here is an example.

Instead, here in TeX, what we do is to share a MWE, which then we can paste into our offline Tex editor (or maybe online if you fancy).

Is there such an equivalent to Jsfiddle for Tex?

Notice that I went through all the options listed in the relatively similar questions, like this one or this one.

Options like https://papeeria.com/, https://tex.mendelu.cz/en/, https://arachnoid.com/latex/, http://latex.informatik.uni-halle.de/latex-online/latex.php, http://sciencesoft.at/latex/?lang=en, https://www.mathjax.org/, which do not require to sign-up, do not allow to share the output online.

    Never used Jsfiddle, but have you looked at overleaf.com and sharelatex.com, which both let you share documents. – Torbjørn T. Mar 31 '17 at 13:25

    Sorry, but I cannot really see a difference to "Compiling documents online". – Schweinebacke Mar 31 '17 at 13:26
  • @Bobyandbob Oh, Overleaf actually allows you to use a guest account and share it! That's it. I missed it! Thus, Overleaf is an equivalent of Jsfiddle for Latex. Thanks! – luchonacho Mar 31 '17 at 13:35
  • @Schweinebacke my particular compiler had to allow for a guest account, and be shareable. Overleaf provides these features. Many others do not. – luchonacho Mar 31 '17 at 13:36
  • Better use the home link: overleaf.com -> create a new paper = better privacy. I deleted the old link. – Bobyandbob Mar 31 '17 at 13:59
