Free Web Based IDEs: Comparative

What are the best Web Based IDEs? An IDE (Integrated Development Environment) is an IT development environment. It is a platform that brings together many programming tools in order to help the developer gain in efficiency.

The difference between an IDE and a Web Based IDE

Unlike the simple IDE, the Web Based IDE can be related to a site. It must be placed on a server, this can then be accessed from any device with an Internet connection and a browser.

For my part, I find the concept ingenious because the Web Based IDE does not need to be installed on each device used to program.

Free Web Based IDEs

My favorite : ICEcoder : Completely free (up to version 5.0, always for download). It only needs php to work. It allows to edit the files of the server on which it was installed. It supports more than 60 programming languages, such as: HTML, CSS, LESS, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, PHP, Ruby, Python, etc. Several themes are available to help adjust your development environment. The connection to GitHut is available. The FTP, Amazon AWS, Dropbox and others will arrive soon. A color palette is available to directly insert a color code. Multi-developer feature available.

Codiad : This one looks like ICEcoderbut has fewer features: no FTP available. It is completely free. Connection to GitHut is possible. The little extra of this IDE: it is possible to add extensions. In addition, it is possible to create projects, which makes it possible to reload all the files of a project automatically thus facilitating the back and forth between two projects. This platform, however, seemed less functional.

The advantage of these two free publishers, unlike others that are paying, is that you can install them on your server, so you are the only one to have access to your code and your connection data.
