Eclipse Che vs HAProxy: What are the differences?

Eclipse Che: Next-Generation Eclipse IDE. Eclipse Che is an open source developer workspace server and cloud IDE. Eclipse Che is the only open source cloud IDE with RESTful workspaces and Docker-based machines. It's as powerful as it sounds; HAProxy: The Reliable, High Performance TCP/HTTP Load Balancer. HAProxy (High Availability Proxy) is a free, very fast and reliable solution offering high availability, load balancing, and proxying for TCP and HTTP-based applications.

Eclipse Che can be classified as a tool in the "Cloud IDE" category, while HAProxy is grouped under "Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy".

"Cloud IDE" is the primary reason why developers consider Eclipse Che over the competitors, whereas "Load balancer" was stated as the key factor in picking HAProxy.

Eclipse Che is an open source tool with 5.56K GitHub stars and 1.03K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Eclipse Che'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.
