Progressive web apps

In addition to running Coder in a web browser, you can also run each application as a progressive web application (PWA). Using Coder as a PWA offers you an experience akin to a native application and improved performance.


To use Coder as a PWA, you must connect to Coder over HTTPS and use either Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.

Installing the PWA

  1. Log into Coder and select your workspace.
  2. Under Applications, click on an application to launch it as a new window or tab.
  3. Follow your browser's instructions for installing the application as a Google Chrome or a Microsoft Edge PWA.

Please note that applications are currently installed on a per-workspace basis.
