We present the ongoing research around the design of Sema, a live coding environment aimed at supporting live coding with machine learning in the modern web browser. Sema integrates custom dashboards with code editors, debugging and visualisation tools, reference documentation and interactive tutorials. We analyse survey findings applying the Creativity Support Index, which aimed at understanding how well Sema supports creativity across its subsystems, and discuss how the insights we obtained contributed to inform the following design iteration.
