Sandbox Editors

CodeSandbox offers two web editors and an iOS editor. A Sandbox is either a Browser Sandbox or a Cloud Sandbox. All Sandboxes are available on the iOS app.

Cloud sandboxes run inside a Firecracker MicroVM and utilise memory snapshotting to ensure fast fork time and wake up time. They can run anything that you would be able to run in your local environment, including Docker containers. You can learn more about how they work in our blog post (opens in a new tab).

Cloud sandboxes are best used to run backend services, compiled languages and things like databases.

The Cloud Sandbox editor contains a set of features to increase the accessibility of complex tools like git, setup, review flows, contributions, and visualizing components.
