If you're looking for a VS Code-like online environment with containers to spin up a dev environment or execute code and scripts it is a good fit. The environments are very customizable, and, all said and done, the price is fair. If you're looking for a remote code editor that allows you to connect via SFTP/SSH and edit the remote files, it isn't quite as seamless as it used to be. I still haven't found any all-cloud alternative, but it could be better.

Legacy applications already on VFP are a good candidate. If you plan to move to iOS and Android apps, VFP is not for you. Also, in future access to VFP programmers may be limited. You could use VFP as a powerful database tool. I know of many programmers who love to exploit the features of VFP to create easy to use applications.

Cons
Codeanywhere
  • Since some updates a couple of years ago, using Codeanywhere as a remote code editor rather than a container-based development environment has been more cumbersome and difficult.
  • The modular nature of connections and containers seems like a good idea, but they don't always work properly.
  • It's difficult sometimes to share a connection or container together with a collaborator.

  • Microsoft stopped selling this and stopped supporting it in 2014. It still works on Windows 10, but if you have a problem, you are on your own.
  • The look and feel of screens and displayed text is getting a little dated.
  • It's really designed for desktop/server environments rather than the cloud.

Although MS has discontinued support of VFP there is a good community of programmers that are available for help. In fact we have several programmers at Apptread that are skilled not only in VFP but also .NET so that if there is a need to migrate some parts of applications to .NET , it is easy for us to do that.

I've used CodeTasty, which is much more of a straight remote code editor, but their dev team is entirely unresponsive, and I became uncomfortable storing credentials with them, so I pulled everything from them and went back to Codeanywhere. VS code is similar but not fully online. While I know that they've released a fully online version, I haven't had the time or wherewith-all to make it work in the capacity I need. Codeanywhere is still the best solution I've found.

We are only using FoxPro because it is the only way to add custom plugins into the software we use to manage our stock. FoxPro is a semi-oriented object language and should clearly not be compared with recent technologies.

Return on Investment

  • Helped me make mission critical edits remotely and on-the-fly.
  • Spent a bit of time figuring out the change in user interfaces.

  • Positive impact is that the value of FoxPro applications has continued to increase over the years, so we are in high demand for our services.
  • Negative impact is that sometimes you have difficult to support scenarios where you might have to spend many hours to just keep something functional.
  • A negative impact is that this language is taught in very few places, either in schools, or private learning centers.
