Executable Code in Educational Apps

John Voorhees (Hacker News):

The ban on executable code remains intact, but rule 2.5.2 now also provides that:

Apps designed to teach, develop, or test executable code may, in limited circumstances, download code provided that such code is not used for other purposes. Such apps must make the source code provided by the Application completely viewable and editable by the user.

I seem to recall an additional requirement about the percentage of the screen that should be devoted to showing the code, but I don’t see that in the current version of the guidelines.
