CLion vs ShiftEdit: What are the differences?

Developers describe CLion as "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. On the other hand, ShiftEdit is detailed as "Online IDE for web development". Connect to your project files wherever they reside. From good old FTP, SFTP to cloud based services such as Dropbox or Google Drive. Clone a repository from Github or Bitbucket. Even connect to localhost with the aid of a proxy.

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