CodeMirror vs CodeSandbox: What are the differences?

What is CodeMirror? In-browser code editor used in the dev tools for both Firefox and Chrome, Light Table, Adobe Brackets, Bitbucket, and many other projects. CodeMirror is a JavaScript component that provides a code editor in the browser. When a mode is available for the language you are coding in, it will color your code, and optionally help with indentation.

What is CodeSandbox? Online playground for React. CodeSandbox allows developers to simply go to a URL in their browser to start building. This not only makes it easier to get started, it also makes it easier to share. You can just share your created work by sharing the URL, others can then (without downloading) further develop on these sandboxes.

CodeMirror can be classified as a tool in the "Text Editor" category, while CodeSandbox is grouped under "Cloud IDE".

CodeMirror and CodeSandbox are both open source tools. CodeMirror with 18.2K GitHub stars and 3.96K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than CodeSandbox with 7.76K GitHub stars and 972 GitHub forks.
