Kobra.io vs Koding: What are the differences?

Developers describe Kobra.io as "Collaborative "Google Docs" for code". Kobra is the easiest way to collaborate on code quickly with your coworkers, friends or students. With built in video & voice chat, the themes and keyboard shortcuts you're used to and syntax highlighting, you'll feel right at home. We're not trying to be your online IDE, we just want to be the simple online editor you use to collaborate on the fly. On the other hand, Koding is detailed as "A new way for developers to work". Koding is a feature rich cloud-based development environment complete with free VMs, an attractive IDE & sudo level terminal access!.

Kobra.io and Koding belong to "Cloud IDE" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Kobra.io are:

  • Realtime Collaborative Coding
  • Video Chat

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.
