CodeSandbox vs StackBlitz: 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, 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.

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

CodeSandbox and StackBlitz are both open source tools. CodeSandbox with 7.52K GitHub stars and 931 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than StackBlitz with 6.61K GitHub stars and 436 GitHub forks.
