CLion vs Nuclide: What are the differences?

What is CLion? A cross-platform IDE for C and C++. Knowing your code through and through, CLion can take care of the routine while you focus on the important things. Boost your productivity with the keyboard-centric approach (Vim-emulation plugin is also available in plugin repository), full coding assistance, smart and relevant code completion, fast project navigation, intelligent intention actions, and reliable refactorings.

What is Nuclide? An open IDE for web and native mobile development, built on top of Atom (by Facebook). A unified developer experience for web and mobile development, built as a suite of packages on top of Atom to provide hackability and the support of an active community.

CLion and Nuclide belong to "Integrated Development Environment" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by CLion are:

  • Smart Editor
  • Code Generation
  • CMake

On the other hand, Nuclide provides the following key features:

  • Remote development. At Facebook, our web and back-end engineers work on remote development servers in our data centers. Nuclide provides a pair of packages that allow connections over SSH to a lightweight node daemon on the server, making possible remote file editing and syntax/type validation. Of course, this also works for VMs, enabling local development on HHVM, for example.
  • Hack language support. The Hack codebase is one of the largest at Facebook. First-class Hack support — including syntax highlighting, type-checking, autocomplete, and click-to-symbol features — has been an important requirement on Nuclide from the start. We're also excited that the growing Hack community outside the company will be able to enjoy dedicated IDE support.
  • Flow support. For both local and remote JavaScript development, Flow has brought type integrity and the ability to quickly refactor our React components and apps. As it does for Hack, Nuclide supports Flow-specific decorations and editor features in @flow-annotated files.

"Good editor" is the top reason why over 21 developers like CLion, while over 7 developers mention "Remote development with SSH" as the leading cause for choosing Nuclide.

Nuclide is an open source tool with 8K GitHub stars and 745 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Nuclide's open source repository on GitHub.

Codealike, Zscaler, and EXANTE are some of the popular companies that use CLion, whereas Nuclide is used by Facebook, Instagram, and Movielala. CLion has a broader approval, being mentioned in 9 company stacks & 8 developers stacks; compared to Nuclide, which is listed in 8 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

      CLion is used to build shiro.

      It is the primary IDE for development on shiro and the source control repository comes with predefined scripts for easy development and testing of shiro.
