What is CodeSandbox and what are its top alternatives?

CodeSandbox allows developers to simply go to a URL in their browser to start building. This not only makes it easier to get started, it also makes it easier to share. You can just share your created work by sharing the URL, others can then (without downloading) further develop on these sandboxes.
CodeSandbox is a tool in the Cloud IDE category of a tech stack.
CodeSandbox is an open source tool with GitHub stars and GitHub forks. Here’s a link to CodeSandbox's open source repository on GitHub

      Brand new (1 week) to coding. Corona killed my industry so I"m making a career change after 25 years. Studying HTML and CSS to become "vertically" proficient, before moving on to JavaScript. So at what point do I need to make a decision on CodePen vs GitHub?

          We are in the process of adopting Next.js as our React framework and using Storybook to help build our React components in isolation. This new part of our frontend is written in TypeScript, and we use Emotion for CSS/styling. For delivering data, we use GraphQL and Apollo. Jest, Percy, and Cypress are used for testing.

          BitBitStorybookStorybook

          Hi Team,

          I need a UI component library where i should be able to integrate with the Angular framework and develop components and again i should be able to deploy them in an isolated environment which should not impact the app.

          I am using Storybook, due to some glitch in storybook new version, We could not able to see the source code in the deployed version.

          We mainly use storybook for demo purposes where we show the code as well. So please help, can I use Bit for my requirement?
