Codeanywhere vs Eclipse Che: 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, Eclipse Che is detailed as "Next-Generation Eclipse IDE. Eclipse Che is an open source developer workspace server and cloud IDE". Eclipse Che is the only open source cloud IDE with RESTful workspaces and Docker-based machines. It's as powerful as it sounds.

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

Some of the features offered by Codeanywhere are:

  • Code editor
  • FTP Client
  • SSH Terminal

On the other hand, Eclipse Che provides the following key features:

  • Universal Workspace
  • Docker Machines
  • Workspace Agents

"Sleek interface" is the top reason why over 12 developers like Codeanywhere, while over 4 developers mention "Cloud IDE" as the leading cause for choosing Eclipse Che.

Eclipse Che is an open source tool with 5.59K GitHub stars and 1.04K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Eclipse Che's open source repository on GitHub.

The main contenders here are VS code and Eclipse, because Koding is meant to be used by large companies and by devs who know what they are doing. Both VS code and Eclipse have pros and cons, but for someone who wants to learn, VS Code is a much better choice as it has a very simple UI and plugins are easier to find and download.

Eclipse isn't meant for learning purposes and was designed with the intent to be used by professionals. Also it is an amazing IDE for java, but isn't so good in other languages, while VS code is much more efficient in a vast number of languages.

The only likely issue you might be facing with vs code is that, at times, it can be a resource hog, and in extreme cases it is possible to crash. But it is very rare and I recommend you have at least 8GB ram and at least a dual 1.6 GHz CPU.
