          Review ofCodeanywhereCodeanywhere

          Over time I think more and more that Codeanywhere is a waste of money.

          They prioritise absolutely pointless features over general UX. Let's take a very simple situation... you're coding a page and suddenly you're logged out and redirected to the homepage login form, so everything you've coded leading up to that redirect is lost for good. You can't go back, even after you log in, and you can't get the code back because it didn't save (because you were not logged in).

          I can think of at least 4 different, more practical ways in which session expiration could be handled to stop this frustration for users, but Codeanywhere would rather have their developers working on additional container support or new syntax highlighting for languages nobody has even heard of.

          Do not waste your money on this garbage. I've been with them long enough to go through at least 2-3 serious situations that could have been prevented if the platform was properly developed.

          Review ofCodeboxCodebox

          I have used this product for over a year now and I find it a wonderful addition to my workflow. However, in the time that I have been using it, Shpakovski have updated Codebox 0 times. No upgrades. No additions to the code base. No extended customisation. No extended personalisation. Nothing. Poor form Codebox.

          When I tried to clone my GitHub repo, it failed with a mysterious error. Grrr.
