CodePicnic vs Gradle: What are the differences?

What is CodePicnic? Full-stack code containers right in the browser. Want to explain some client-side code or server-side project? We made it happen. Say "Hi" to CodePicnic. Your neighborhood platform for sharing and running code in the browser.

What is Gradle? A powerful build system for the JVM. Gradle is a build tool with a focus on build automation and support for multi-language development. If you are building, testing, publishing, and deploying software on any platform, Gradle offers a flexible model that can support the entire development lifecycle from compiling and packaging code to publishing web sites.

CodePicnic can be classified as a tool in the "Sandbox as a Service" category, while Gradle is grouped under "Java Build Tools".

Some of the features offered by CodePicnic are:

  • Full Back-end Consoles - From a Linux shell to a Express.js app. Create consoles with Ruby, Python, PHP or Node.js. If it runs on GNU/Linux, we can handle.
  • Embeddable servers - Use your consoles inside your site, Tumblr blog or Medium. Let those text-only tutorials in the past.
  • Shareable - Everyone gets their own console copy! Safe and secure to play around, mess with and even export it to Github.

On the other hand, Gradle provides the following key features:

  • Declarative builds and build-by-convention
  • Language for dependency based programming
  • Structure your build
