Codeanywhere vs GitLab: 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, GitLab is detailed as "Open source self-hosted Git management software". GitLab offers git repository management, code reviews, issue tracking, activity feeds and wikis. Enterprises install GitLab on-premise and connect it with LDAP and Active Directory servers for secure authentication and authorization. A single GitLab server can handle more than 25,000 users but it is also possible to create a high availability setup with multiple active servers.
Codeanywhere can be classified as a tool in the "Cloud IDE" category, while GitLab is grouped under "Code Collaboration & Version Control".
Some of the features offered by Codeanywhere are:
- Code editor
- FTP Client
- SSH Terminal
On the other hand, GitLab provides the following key features:
- Manage git repositories with fine grained access controls that keep your code secure
- Perform code reviews and enhance collaboration with merge requests
- Each project can also have an issue tracker and a wiki
