It's been obvious for some time that jsFiddle is not the best way to
set-up jQuery Mobile demos. While it is generally an OK way to show a
jQuery problem, it falls short for jQuery Mobile, because it is limited
(except for "external resources") to a single CSS, HTML, and
JS file. While you can include external resources, of course they
can't be edited.
As well, it's not easy or even possible in many cases to show
the use of, say, a REST API. So, another "would be nice"
would be the ability to proxy URLs to some other site, making it
possible to demo access to an API without cross-domain issues.
I'd like to be able to recommend an alternative instead of
jsFiddle, and I'd like to solicit input.
I'm aware of one site that seems promising, Plunker. (Note the
spelling in the URL, though!)
I haven't spent much time with it, but it does have one
important feature needed to effectively demo/collaborate on jQuery
Mobile - you can create and edit multiple files. And, so, it's
possible to create multi-page demos without being forced to use a

Some kind of "server side include" would be nice. Otherwise,
you have to copy-paste your <head>
from one file to another. That's not too awful, though, for a demo
of just 2-3 pages, which is what most people would need here.
