Ace vs Capybara: What are the differences?

Developers describe Ace as "Embeddable code editor written in JavaScript". Ace is a standalone code editor written in JavaScript. Our goal is to create a browser based editor that matches and extends the features, usability and performance of existing native editors such as TextMate, Vim or Eclipse. It can be easily embedded in any web page or JavaScript application. On the other hand, Capybara is detailed as "Acceptance test framework for web applications". Capybara helps you test web applications by simulating how a real user would interact with your app. It is agnostic about the driver running your tests and comes with Rack::Test and Selenium support built in. WebKit is supported through an external gem.

Ace can be classified as a tool in the "Collaborative Text Editor" category, while Capybara is grouped under "Testing Frameworks".
