Codebox vs Theia: What are the differences?
What is Codebox? 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.
What is Theia? 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.
Codebox and Theia can be categorized as "Cloud IDE" tools.

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.
