Marlowe Playground

# What is Marlowe **Marlowe** is special-purpose language for financial contracts on Cardano, allowing contracts to be written in the language of finance, rather than using a general-purpose language on the blockchain. Because it is special-purpose, it is easier to read, write and understand Marlowe contracts. It is also safer: some sorts of errors are impossible to write, and we can completely analyze contract behavior without having to run a contract. **The Marlowe team** implemented in-browser support for Marlowe Run, finished work on the new [Marlowe website](, and included a registration link for the **upcoming series of webinars.** Next Upcoming Webinar Series: Explore the future of open finance **June 3, 2021** ## What is the Marlowe Playground? In the browser-based Marlowe Playground you can write Marlowe contracts, in a variety of different ways. Once a contract is written, you can analyze its behavior, e.g. checking whether any payments made by the contract could conceivably fail. You can also step through how a contract will behave, simulating the actions of the participants, and read a comprehensive tutorial on Marlowe and the Playground. ## How does the playground work? Marlowe contracts can be built in different ways. You can write them as Marlowe text, but also use the Blockly visual programming tool to create contracts by fitting together blocks that represent the different components. Marlowe is embedded in JavaScript and Haskell, and so you can use their features to help you to build Marlowe contracts more easily.
