Codeanywhere vs PythonAnywhere: 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; PythonAnywhere: Micro PaaS for Python web apps. Develop and host Python from your browser. It's somewhat unique. A small PaaS that supports web apps (Python only) as well as scheduled jobs with shell access. It is an expensive way to tinker and run several small apps.

Codeanywhere and PythonAnywhere are primarily classified as "Cloud IDE" and "Platform as a Service" tools respectively.

"Sleek interface" is the primary reason why developers consider Codeanywhere over the competitors, whereas "Web apps" was stated as the key factor in picking PythonAnywhere.

    Reviews of Codeanywhere and PythonAnywhere
    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.
