Dev Environments on DigitialOcean with Coder

We’ve added Coder to the DigitalOcean marketplace! Coder is a self-hosted platform for managing remote IDEs. Coder can be particularly useful if you’re looking for faster dev environments or onboarding developers. You can also develop from an iPad!

How it works:

  1. Deploy a DigitalOcean droplet with our Coder one-click application
  2. Build a container image with your project’s dependencies (docs)
  3. Create workspaces and use your favorite IDE (VS Code, IntelliJ, JupyterLab, etc)
  4. Invite your team members to your Coder deployment (optional)

If you’re not a DigitalOcean user, you can deploy Coder to any cloud or on-premises. Visit the Coder setup docs for instructions with AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, Google Cloud, Docker, Kubernetes, etc.

If you liked this, share on Twitter, Hacker News, LinkedIn or Reddit

code-server: the heart of Coder

code-server is the primary open source project we maintain. It allows developers to use a browser to access remote dev environments running VS Code. Coder builds upon the success of code-server and adds features designed for enterprise teams including support for additional IDEs and advanced security features.
