Integrate PCF harness into Docs site

One of the big challenges for a PCF beginner is getting the environment and CLI setup. Since the test harness is already a webapp, it would be great if the test harness can complement content on docs site - like Adaptive card designer (https://adaptivecards.io/designer/), C# Interactive tutorials (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/csharp/tutorials/intro-to-csharp/hello-world?tutorial-step=1).

 

This would help people to tryout various ideas right in the browser, rather than downloading correct tools, npm restore etc. If sample components are shown as well, people can then fiddle with it and learn by tweaking the example code.The harness/docs can introduce PCF by starting with the manifest, property types (bound/input/output), type (field/dataset), lifecycle methods, passing control change back to framework, using WebAPI etc - basically simple to complex example.
