CodeSandbox vs Theia: 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 Theia? Cloud & desktop IDE framework implemented in TypeScript. Theia provides the end-user with a full-fledged multi-language IDE (not just a smart editor) and supports equally the paradigm of Cloud IDE and Desktop IDE.
CodeSandbox and Theia belong to "Cloud IDE" category of the tech stack.
CodeSandbox and Theia are both open source tools. CodeSandbox with 7.52K GitHub stars and 931 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Theia with 4.66K GitHub stars and 584 GitHub forks.
