Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro SSH + terminal
Built-in terminal with root access so you can make changes to your running machines. Being able to SSH into the workspace so you can use a desktop IDE is handy.
Pro Docker runtimes
Pro GIT and SVN VCS support
Projects can be easily imported from any Git or Svn repository hosting service.
Pro Reproducible environment
Pro Custom commands
You can package up custom commands with your workspace and then use them (or share them) with everyone else.
Pro Portable workspaces
The workspace in Che includes project sources, IDE and the runtime. So if you hand your Che workspace definition to another user and they execute it they will get everything they need to build, run and debug the project.
Also the runtime is in a Docker container so it will work even if the second user is on a different OS than the original user who shared their workspace with them.
Che does a nice job to automatically map the service:port running in the Docker container (e.g. tomcat on 8080) to the Docker port it actually uses (something in the ephemeral range). You never need to figure that out - it's just made available when you run your server.
Pro Merge tool for VCS
Pro CoffeeScript and SCSS support
Pro Allows collaborating on code
JSFiddle makes it easy to save the code snippets and send the link to others who can view and edit the code.
Pro Supports a wide variety of frameworks and extensions
JSFiddle can switch to selection of frameworks and extensions including jQuery, AngularJS, ReactiveJS, D3 simply from a dropdown.
Con Slow runtime
Online IDE is much slower than desktop one.
Con Not actually an IDE
JSFiddle is not actually an IDE and is only suitable for small blocks of code.
