CodeMirror vs Laravel Homestead: What are the differences?

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; Laravel Homestead: The official Laravel local development environment (Vagrant box). Laravel Homestead is an official, pre-packaged Vagrant "box" that provides you a wonderful development environment without requiring you to install PHP, HHVM, a web server, and any other server software on your local machine. Homestead runs on any Windows, Mac, or Linux system, and includes the Nginx web server, PHP 5.6, MySQL, Postgres, Redis, Memcached, and all of the other goodies you need to develop amazing Laravel applications.

CodeMirror and Laravel Homestead are primarily classified as "Text Editor" and "Virtual Machine" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by CodeMirror are:

  • Support for over 60 languages out of the box
  • A powerful, composable language mode system
  • Autocompletion (XML)

On the other hand, Laravel Homestead provides the following key features:

  • Ubuntu 14.04
  • PHP 5.6
  • HHVM

"Integrable in your application" is the primary reason why developers consider CodeMirror over the competitors, whereas "Easy to setup" was stated as the key factor in picking Laravel Homestead.

CodeMirror and Laravel Homestead are both open source tools. It seems that CodeMirror with 18K GitHub stars and 3.92K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Laravel Homestead with 3.14K GitHub stars and 1.32K GitHub forks.

Timekit, Pitcherific, and HigherMe are some of the popular companies that use Laravel Homestead, whereas CodeMirror is used by Treehouse, Blackfire.io, and Jumplead. Laravel Homestead has a broader approval, being mentioned in 21 company stacks & 24 developers stacks; compared to CodeMirror, which is listed in 24 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.
