Coder v1.16: SSH Port Forwarding, REST API, and Dashboard Redesign
SSH Port Forwarding + X11 Forwarding
Connect to services running on your Coder environment from your local machine with SSH remote port forwarding. SSH port forwarding makes it possible to access services that aren’t available through Dev URLs, such as mobile app development.
Use Coder’s beta REST API to automate Coder through custom apps or scripts! The API contains endpoints for managing users, environments, organizations, and images. You'll need an API token to access the API, which you can generate using the coder-cli. Simply run
coder tokens create [name]
Here are some resources for getting started with Coder’s API:
- Coder API Public Docs (Swagger) Sample Project: Importing users to Coder from CSV
- Sample Project: Importing users into Coder from CSV
We’ve updated the Coder dashboard colorway to reflect Coder’s brand.
In Coder v1.15, we announced the deprecation of Coder’s Services feature in favor of supporting industry standard tools, like Docker and Docker Compose, in the environment. CVMs in Coder are no longer in alpha and are our recommended solution for running these workloads:
Coder preserves all of the resources you created for Services for data recovery purposes, but you will not be able to access them through the platform. For assistance migrating your services, please contact us. If your setup does not support the CVM runtime, workspaces can continue using the default runtime on your cluster.
Removed: Internal Extension Marketplace
We have removed the built-in Internal Extension Marketplace. Coder preserves all resources created for internal marketplaces for data recovery purposes, but you will not be able to access them via the platform.
For air-gapped deployments, we offer the Custom Extension Marketplace Configuration (which enables the use of Open VSX) as an alternative.
