Eclipse Che vs Visual Studio Code: 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, Visual Studio Code is detailed as "Build and debug modern web and cloud applications, by Microsoft". Build and debug modern web and cloud applications. Code is free and available on your favorite platform - Linux, Mac OSX, and Windows.

Eclipse Che and Visual Studio Code are primarily classified as "Cloud IDE" and "Text Editor" tools respectively.

"Cloud IDE" is the top reason why over 4 developers like Eclipse Che, while over 237 developers mention "Powerful multilanguage IDE" as the leading cause for choosing Visual Studio Code.

Eclipse Che and Visual Studio Code are both open source tools. It seems that Visual Studio Code with 78.4K GitHub stars and 10.9K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Eclipse Che with 5.56K GitHub stars and 1.03K GitHub forks.

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.

Lightweight and versatile. Huge library of extensions that enable you to integrate a host of services to your development environment. VS Code's biggest strength is its library of extensions which enables it to directly compete with every single major IDE for almost all major programming languages.

Visual Studio Code became famous over the past 3+ years I believe. The clean UI, easy to use UX and the plethora of integrations made it a very easy decision for us. Our gripe with Sublime was probably only the UX side. VSCode has not failed us till now, and still is able to support our development env without any significant effort.

Goland being paid, as well as built only for Go seemed like a significant limitation to not consider it.

I decided to choose VSCode over Sublime text for my Systems Programming class in C. What I love about VSCode is its awesome ability to add extensions. Intellisense is a beautiful debugger, and Remote SSH allows me to login and make real-time changes in VSCode to files on my university server. This is an awesome alternative to going back and forth on pushing/pulling code and logging into servers in the terminal. Great choice for anyone interested in C programming!
