CodeSandbox vs Codio: What are the differences?

Developers describe CodeSandbox as "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. On the other hand, Codio is detailed as "An awesome Web IDE that runs right in your browser". Every project gets its own Box: an instantly available server-side development environment with full terminal access. With features such as forking, collaboration, importing from Git repos and more, Codio strives to remove as many barriers as possible to create a platform developers will enjoy using as their IDE of choice.

CodeSandbox and Codio belong to "Cloud IDE" category of the tech stack.

CodeSandbox is an open source tool with 7.52K GitHub stars and 931 GitHub forks. Here's a link to CodeSandbox's open source repository on GitHub.
