JSFiddle vs Koding: What are the differences?

JSFiddle: An online code editor. It is an online community for testing and showcasing user-created and collaborational HTML, CSS and JavaScript code snippets, known as 'fiddles'. It allows for simulated AJAX calls; Koding: 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!.

JSFiddle and Koding can be primarily classified as "Cloud IDE" tools.

Some of the features offered by JSFiddle are:

  • Saving and Forking code
  • GitHub Integration
  • Live code collaboration

On the other hand, Koding provides the following key features:

  • Free virtual machine (VM) with Ubuntu, root access, apt-get, and many commonly used tools
  • Built-in Terminal with 256-color support
  • All languages, databases, and command-line tools are supported

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.
