Something like "Mathematica/CDF Player" for Sage

Is there an application for sage like Mathematica Player (CDF Player) - something that allows users to run Sage codes without needing to download and install the complete Sage package on their machines?

Example of Mean Value Theorem is a Sage interact/interaction. You can find more examples here.

I literally just emailed someone about precisely this thing. You should try the Sage cell server.

Example of Mean Value Theorem (not very pretty formatting but it was what I was just working on)

Now, one does need a web-enabled device for this. So there is that. But note that (as far as I understand it) the CDF player basically is Mma except without being allowed to do anything with it other than play CDF files, so it's perhaps not quite as light-weight as one might think.

@kcrisman Thanks, but there can be a huge difference between an online manipulation and an offline one especially on a slow internet connection, e.g. your example doesn't look smooth - in contrast to a similar CDF Player manipulation. I don't know how, but the previous versions of CDF Player installation were below 100 MB, while at the same time Mathematica installation was about 1 GB.

Yes, the "interact" functionality is not compiled. My understanding is that there is not so much of a technical barrier to making them seem even "smoother" but I haven't worked on that lately. There is no identical functionality, in that sense.
