Codeanywhere vs CodeSandbox: What are the differences?

Developers describe Codeanywhere as "Online code editor, available on iOS, Android and more. Integrates with GitHub and Dropbox". A development platform that enables you to not only edit your files from underlying services like FTP, GitHub, Dropbox and the like, but on top of that gives you the ability to collaborate, embed and share through Codeanywhere on any device. On the other hand, CodeSandbox is detailed as "Online playground for React". 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.

Codeanywhere and CodeSandbox belong to "Cloud IDE" category of the tech stack.

CodeSandbox is an open source tool with 7.52K GitHub stars and 931 GitHub forks. Here's a link to CodeSandbox's open source repository on GitHub.

    Reviews of Codeanywhere and CodeSandbox
    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.
