Heroku vs PythonAnywhere: What are the differences?
What is Heroku? Build, deliver, monitor and scale web apps and APIs with a trail blazing developer experience. Heroku is a cloud application platform – a new way of building and deploying web apps. Heroku lets app developers spend 100% of their time on their application code, not managing servers, deployment, ongoing operations, or scaling.
What is PythonAnywhere? Micro PaaS for Python web apps. Develop and host Python from your browser. It's somewhat unique. A small PaaS that supports web apps (Python only) as well as scheduled jobs with shell access. It is an expensive way to tinker and run several small apps.
Heroku and PythonAnywhere can be primarily classified as "Platform as a Service" tools.
"Easy deployment" is the top reason why over 694 developers like Heroku, while over 4 developers mention "Web apps" as the leading cause for choosing PythonAnywhere.
