CodePen vs StackBlitz: What are the differences?

Developers describe CodePen as "An online community for testing and showcasing user-created HTML, CSS and JavaScript code snippets". It is a social development environment for front-end designers and developers.. It functions as an online code editor and open-source learning environment, where developers can create code snippets, creatively named "pens", and test them. On the other hand, StackBlitz is detailed as "Online VS Code Editor for Angular and React". StackBlitz is an online IDE where you can create Angular & React projects that are immediately online & shareable via link… in just one click. 😮 It automatically takes care of installing dependencies, compiling, bundling, and hot reloading as you type.

CodePen and StackBlitz can be categorized as "Cloud IDE" tools.

StackBlitz is an open source tool with 6.71K GitHub stars and 448 GitHub forks. Here's a link to StackBlitz's open source repository on GitHub.

    What are some alternatives to CodePen and StackBlitz?
    GitHub
    GitHub is the best place to share code with friends, co-workers, classmates, and complete strangers. Over three million people use GitHub to build amazing things together.
    CodeSandbox
    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.
    Codeanywhere
    A development platform that enables you to not only edit your files from underlying services like FTP, GitHub, Dropbox and the like, but on top of that gives you the ability to collaborate, embed and share through Codeanywhere on any device.
    JSFiddle
    It is an online community for testing and showcasing user-created and collaborational HTML, CSS and JavaScript code snippets, known as 'fiddles'. It allows for simulated AJAX calls.
    Atom
    At GitHub, we're building the text editor we've always wanted. A tool you can customize to do anything, but also use productively on the first day without ever touching a config file. Atom is modern, approachable, and hackable to the core. We can't wait to see what you build with it.
