With third-party extensions, you can use code-server to collaborate with other developers in real time.
Duckly allows you to share your code in real-time even with people using different IDEs (like JetBrains and VSCode).
Duckly uses an extension to provide real time sharing features
SERVICE_URL=https://open-vsx.org/vscode/gallery \ ITEM_URL=https://open-vsx.org/vscode/item \ code-server --install-extension gitduck.code-streaming
code-serverwindow. You should now be able to see the Duckly extension.
code-server is based on VS Code, you can follow the steps described on Duckly's Pair programming with VS Code page and skip the installation step.
CodeTogether is another service with cross-platform live collaborative features:
However, some of these are paid options.
Install the CodeTogether extension from OpenVSX on
SERVICE_URL=https://open-vsx.org/vscode/gallery \ ITEM_URL=https://open-vsx.org/vscode/item \ code-server --install-extension genuitecllc.codetogether
CodeTogether requires VS Code's proposed API to run. Start code-server with the following flag:
code-server --enable-proposed-api genuitecllc.codetogether
Another option would be to add a value in code-server's config file.
Refresh code-server and navigate to the CodeTogether icon in the sidebar to host or join a coding session.
