Eclipse Che vs Laravel Homestead: What are the differences?

Developers describe Eclipse Che as "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. On the other hand, Laravel Homestead is detailed as "The official Laravel local development environment (Vagrant box)". Laravel Homestead is an official, pre-packaged Vagrant "box" that provides you a wonderful development environment without requiring you to install PHP, HHVM, a web server, and any other server software on your local machine. Homestead runs on any Windows, Mac, or Linux system, and includes the Nginx web server, PHP 5.6, MySQL, Postgres, Redis, Memcached, and all of the other goodies you need to develop amazing Laravel applications.

Eclipse Che can be classified as a tool in the "Cloud IDE" category, while Laravel Homestead is grouped under "Virtual Machine".

Some of the features offered by Eclipse Che are:

  • Universal Workspace
  • Docker Machines
  • Workspace Agents

On the other hand, Laravel Homestead provides the following key features:

  • Ubuntu 14.04
  • PHP 5.6
  • HHVM

"Cloud IDE" is the primary reason why developers consider Eclipse Che over the competitors, whereas "Easy to setup" was stated as the key factor in picking Laravel Homestead.

Eclipse Che and Laravel Homestead are both open source tools. Eclipse Che with 5.56K GitHub stars and 1.03K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Laravel Homestead with 3.11K GitHub stars and 1.32K GitHub forks.
