# Getting Started

The recommended way to edit REAM files is to use REAM-Editor(opens new window) , an editor designed to read and write REAM files. It runs entirely in the browser and requires no local installation.

A lite version of REAM-editor(opens new window) is embedded in this documentation for readers to test the examples. Click the Try it! button under each example to toggle the editor.

You can also edit REAM files with any text editor, and use the standalone parser to compile the datasets. See reamparser.js for the requirements and installation instructions.
