The process of installing an IDE onto your image is similar to installing the IDE onto a local machine.
To see examples demonstrating how to install the various IDEs and configure your image to work with Coder's multi editor feature, see the sample images available on GitHub.
Coder can find and start the following IDEs if their binaries exist in your PATH:
- IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition
- IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate
- Code OSS (VS Code, installed by default)
The following packages are required in your image if you're using an IDE other than VS Code. They ensure that the IDE can communicate with Coder:
|Debian package||RPM package||Description|
|openssl||openssl||Secure Sockets Layer Toolkit|
|libxtst6||libXtst||X11 Testing Library|
|libxrender1||libXrender||X Rendering Extension Client Library|
|libfontconfig1||fontconfig||Generic Font Configuration Library|
|libxi6||libXi||X11 Input Extension Library|
|libgtk-3-0||gtk3||GTK+ Graphical User Interface Library|
