Arduino IDE vs PlatformIO: What are the differences?

Developers describe Arduino IDE as "A cross-platform application integrated development environment *". It makes it easy to write code and upload it to the board. It runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The environment is written in Java and based on Processing and other open-source software. On the other hand, *PlatformIO** is detailed as "Next-generation IDE for IoT". PlatformIO is an open source ecosystem for IoT development. Cross-platform build system and library manager. Continuous and IDE integration. Arduino and MBED compatible. Ready for Cloud compiling.

Arduino IDE and PlatformIO can be categorized as "Integrated Development Environment" tools.

PlatformIO is an open source tool with 3.29K GitHub stars and 432 GitHub forks. Here's a link to PlatformIO's open source repository on GitHub.

    What are some alternatives to Arduino IDE and PlatformIO?
    uno
    We built uno, a small tool similar to uniq (the UNIX CLI tool that removes duplicates) - but with fuzziness. uno considers two lines to be equal if their edit distance is less than a specified threshold, by default set to 30%. It reads from stdin and prints the deduplicated lines to stdout.
    Python
    Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
    Visual Studio
    Visual Studio is a suite of component-based software development tools and other technologies for building powerful, high-performance applications.
    IntelliJ IDEA
    Out of the box, IntelliJ IDEA provides a comprehensive feature set including tools and integrations with the most important modern technologies and frameworks for enterprise and web development with Java, Scala, Groovy and other languages.
    PyCharm
    PyCharm’s smart code editor provides first-class support for Python, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, TypeScript, CSS, popular template languages and more. Take advantage of language-aware code completion, error detection, and on-the-fly code fixes!
