CodeSandbox vs Koding: What are the differences?

What is CodeSandbox? 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.

What is Koding? A new way for developers to work. Koding is a feature rich cloud-based development environment complete with free VMs, an attractive IDE & sudo level terminal access!.

CodeSandbox and Koding can be primarily classified as "Cloud IDE" tools.

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.

The main contenders here are VS code and Eclipse, because Koding is meant to be used by large companies and by devs who know what they are doing. Both VS code and Eclipse have pros and cons, but for someone who wants to learn, VS Code is a much better choice as it has a very simple UI and plugins are easier to find and download.

Eclipse isn't meant for learning purposes and was designed with the intent to be used by professionals. Also it is an amazing IDE for java, but isn't so good in other languages, while VS code is much more efficient in a vast number of languages.

The only likely issue you might be facing with vs code is that, at times, it can be a resource hog, and in extreme cases it is possible to crash. But it is very rare and I recommend you have at least 8GB ram and at least a dual 1.6 GHz CPU.
