What are the BEST online cloud IDEs in 2018?

Have you ever thought: what’s the best online cloud IDE for programming in 2018?
How can I develop from my iPad/tablet/phone?
Well it’s actually pretty easy nowadays. You can run all your code in a cloud IDE.

Here is the list of top cloud IDE for developers in 2018. But let’s be honest, even non-developers folks can use these!

Cloud IDEs

  • AWS Cloud9- Recently acquired by AWS, Cloud9 lets anyone run any language on a full VM complete with a fully fledged terminal.

  • CodeEnvy - Acquired by RedHat it allows you to run any language on a full VM complete powered by Docker and Eclipse Che, a developer workspace server and cloud IDE built for teams and organizations.

  • StackBlitz - Powered by Visual Studio Code, you can run TypeScript/JavaScript with starting templates for Angular, React, or Ionic with full intellisense + instant error checking. Starting from $10/month!

  • Glitch - By the same folks who built StackOverflow and Trello, run, host, learn and share code in the cloud. Mostly Node.js

  • SourceLair - Lets you develop your Python, Node.js and PHP applications with a public URL to share with the world. Includes terminal, code completion and various databases. One month free trial.

Front-end focused snippet platforms

  • CodePen - Run snippets in HTML/CSS/JS, popular with designers

  • JS Bin - Developped by the great @rem and a bunch of others this open source project lets you run snippets in HTML/CSS/JS/TS, provides Codecasting (meaning live-coding and collaboration).

  • JSFiddle - Another service which let’s anyone run snippets in HTML/CSS/JS and collaborate in realtime. Mostly used with StackOverflow posts.

  • Flems - Run snippets in HTML/CSS/JS without a connection to the server (after page load)

  • Plunker - A fairly famous StackOverflow companion snippet runner: Run snippets in HTML/CSS/JS/TS and collaborate by forking, commenting etc.

My fave cloud IDEs and hosted tools

I have tried quite a few of these. Here are my top 3 favorite IDE editors:

  1. Glitch: It’s just really fast. and it has an in-line collaborative tool, which calls for experts to help you debug code
  2. If I ever wanna run some Python code quickly on my phone, I go to Repl’s homepage
  3. JS Bin: Been using this for a thousand of different reasons, from quickly prototyping to teaching JavaScript to a few friends. Awesome overall!
