Codebox vs Eclipse Che: What are the differences?
Developers describe Codebox as "Cloud IDE as a Service". FriendCode was created in 2013 with the vision of creating powerful development tools, tackling issues like collaboration, cloud development and many others. We are building Codebox, an open source Cloud IDE, than can run not only on the cloud, but on your desktop or your server as well. Codebox.io lets you host and manage Codebox instances online as a service using a dashboard or an API. 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.

I have used this product for over a year now and I find it a wonderful addition to my workflow. However, in the time that I have been using it, Shpakovski have updated Codebox 0 times. No upgrades. No additions to the code base. No extended customisation. No extended personalisation. Nothing. Poor form Codebox.
When I tried to clone my GitHub repo, it failed with a mysterious error. Grrr.
