Coder offers both enterprise and open-source (code-server) solutions to meet the remote development needs of organizations and individual developers. Both solutions enable cloud-based software development delivered through the browser. The key differences pertain to governance, development environment management, availability of enterprise integrations (e.g., Git OAuth, SSO), and multi-IDE support.
