Codeanywhere is a customizable web-based development environment that supports 75 different languages. It provides an attractive alternative to desktop IDEs for those who are not afraid to try out new things.
Let’s take a look at what Codeanywhere can actually do for you. It’s built with the core idea of making it easier and quicker to code applications. The editor supports all standard features such code completion, linting, multiple cursors, Zen coding, code beautify, and more. Everything can be customized exactly to your liking with easy-to-edit color schemes and multiple layouts. As such, Codeanywhere can effortlessly accommodate different programming styles and habits.
In addition to the editor itself, programmers can take advantage of the built-in terminal to directly see the output of their programs or perform a various advanced task like SSHing into a remote server. During our testing, we were very pleased with how everything performed, and there wasn’t a single instance when we felt in any way limited by the web interface. In fact, we were thoroughly impressed with how smooth and fluid the web interface was.
Codeanywhere also places a big importance on collaboration, sharing, and the ability to easily open your code for others to work on and re-use. Users can share their entire projects or individual files, each with its own individual set of permissions. It even supports life collaboration. This style of programming strongly resembles the real-time document editing that you may be used to from Google Docs. Two or more persons can log in and simultaneously work on the same code. This style of coding is perfect for debugging, bug tracking, and optimization. Not to mention the wide range of possibilities when it comes to using it as a teaching aid.
You can integrate your favorite services, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, GitHub, and others, without the need to execute multiple programs. Plus, your computer stays clean thanks to pre-built development environments for the most popular languages and frameworks.
Codeanywhere is available is 5 subscription-based packages. The most affordable won’t cost you a single dollar, but it still gives you everything you need to get started. If you don’t mind entering your credit card information, you will get the option to try any of the more expensive options for 7 days. If you don’t like it, simply deactivate it. The most expensive option is the business payment plan, which features an unlimited number of FTP servers, multiuser support, and extra security.
