Does ace support compiling and showing the result. Like in codecademy when you type html and css there is a section aside that show the compiled code ???

You need to run the code by yourself. Ace just provides the UI required for giving a code editor like feel. If it's html/css/js you can "run" and show the output in your frontend itself. But if you plan on something like C++/Py/Go, you'd need a separate backend which supports secure remote code execution, preferably something containerised.
