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 to 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, then it can 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 of the devices 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 you to edit the files of the server on which it was installed. It supports more than 60 programming languages, like for example: HTML, CSS, LESS, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, PHP, Ruby, Python, etc. Several themes are available to allow you to best adjust your development environment. Connection to GitHut is available. That to FTP, Amazon AWS, Dropbox and more, will arrive soon. A color palette is available to directly insert a color code. Multi-developer function available.

Codiad : This one looks like ICEcoder, but has less functionality: 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 back-and-forth between two projects. This platform nevertheless seemed less functional to me.

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