Kite vs Sourcegraph: What are the differences?

What is Kite? Your programming copilot. Augment your coding environment with all the internet’s programming knowledge. Your editor and web browser don't know anything about each other, which is why you end up continuously switching between them. Kite bridges that gap, bringing an internet-connected programming experience right alongside your editor.

What is Sourcegraph? Code search and code intelligence for you and your team. Sourcegraph is a code search engine that lets you search across hundreds of thousands of libraries and browse code in the same way you can do in a great IDE. Search for a function, see live examples of how it’s used by other repositories, and jump to the definition of other code around it—even if the definition is in a completely different repository.

Kite and Sourcegraph are primarily classified as "Tools for Text Editors" and "Code Search" tools respectively.
