Codeanywhere vs Theia: 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, Theia is detailed as "Cloud & desktop IDE framework implemented in TypeScript". Theia provides the end-user with a full-fledged multi-language IDE (not just a smart editor) and supports equally the paradigm of Cloud IDE and Desktop IDE.

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

Theia is an open source tool with 4.66K GitHub stars and 584 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Theia's open source repository on GitHub.

          Reviews of Codeanywhere and Theia
          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.
