What is CodeSandbox and what are its top alternatives?

CodeSandbox allows developers to simply go to a URL in their browser to start building. This not only makes it easier to get started, it also makes it easier to share. You can just share your created work by sharing the URL, others can then (without downloading) further develop on these sandboxes.
CodeSandbox is a tool in the Cloud IDE category of a tech stack.
CodeSandbox is an open source tool with 10.7K GitHub stars and 1.8K GitHub forks. Here’s a link to CodeSandbox's open source repository on GitHub

          We are in the process of adopting Next.js as our React framework and using Storybook to help build our React components in isolation. This new part of our frontend is written in TypeScript, and we use Emotion for CSS/styling. For delivering data, we use GraphQL and Apollo. Jest, Percy, and Cypress are used for testing.
