What is 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.

What is Glitch?

Combining automated deployment, instant hosting and collaborative editing, Gomix gets you straight to coding. The apps you create are instantly live, hosted by us, and always up to date with your latest changes. Build products, prototype ideas, and hack solutions to problems.
