          Review ofCodeboxCodebox

          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.

          Review ofNitrous.IONitrous.IO

          Nothing but good things to say about Nitrous; it's fast, reliable, easy to use and appears to have very few chinks in the armour.

          It integrates easily with Github, easy to install Drupal, and amazingly enough it runs Magento well straight off the bat!

          Definitely recommend.

          Review ofNitrous.IONitrous.IO

          I use Nitrous.io as my primary development environment now for MeteorJS app development. I can work from anywhere, anytime. The environments are reliable, fast, and support is good. Been hacking away for about 3 months full-time and no hitches.

          When I tried to clone my GitHub repo, it failed with a mysterious error. Grrr.

          This is my go-to when I can't use my IDE of choice (Sublime/Gulp workflow). Robust, accessible anywhere, and the free version gives me everything I need to get work done.
