Codeanywhere vs Kobra.io: What are the differences?
Codeanywhere: 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; Kobra.io: Collaborative "Google Docs" for code. Kobra is the easiest way to collaborate on code quickly with your coworkers, friends or students. With built in video & voice chat, the themes and keyboard shortcuts you're used to and syntax highlighting, you'll feel right at home. We're not trying to be your online IDE, we just want to be the simple online editor you use to collaborate on the fly.
Codeanywhere and Kobra.io can be categorized as "Cloud IDE" tools.
Some of the features offered by Codeanywhere are:
- Code editor
- FTP Client
- SSH Terminal
On the other hand, Kobra.io provides the following key features:
- Realtime Collaborative Coding
- Video Chat
- Voice Chat

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.
