Codeanywhere vs Codio: 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, Codio is detailed as "An awesome Web IDE that runs right in your browser". Every project gets its own Box: an instantly available server-side development environment with full terminal access. With features such as forking, collaboration, importing from Git repos and more, Codio strives to remove as many barriers as possible to create a platform developers will enjoy using as their IDE of choice.

      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 ofCodioCodio

      I think, this is the best online IDE nowadays. I'm using it for months. Fast, cool, easy to use. I have a license for PhpStorm (but I'm using it for Nodejs/Angularjs now), but I almost never use my desktop IDE because Codio is the first for which can really replace it. I simply don't need anything else. And for $8 you can work on unlimited private projects! That's cool. I also loved the support and the way they communicated, when there was a problem with the service. Their communication was honest and quick.
