The following desktop IDEs have been tested with Coder, though any IDE with SSH support should work:
- Visual Studio Code
- JetBrains with Gateway
- IntelliJ IDEA
- Web IDEs (code-server, JupyterLab, JetBrains Projector)
- Note: These are configured in the template
VS Code Desktop in the dashboard to one-click enter a workspace. This
automatically installs the Coder Remote
extension, authenticates with Coder, and connects to the workspace.
You can set the default directory in which VS Code opens via the
coder_agent resource in your workspace template. See the
Terraform documentation for more details.
VS Code Desktopbutton can be hidden by enabling Browser-only connections.
Launch VS Code Quick Open (Ctrl+P), paste the following command, and press enter.
ext install coder.coder-remote
Alternatively, manually install the VSIX from the latest release.
Before proceeding, run
coder login <accessURL>if you haven't already to authenticate the CLI with the web UI and your workspaces.
To access Coder via SSH, run the following in the terminal:
coder config-ssh --dry-runif you'd like to see the changes that will be made before proceeding.
Confirm that you want to continue by typing yes and pressing enter. If successful, you'll see the following message:
You should now be able to ssh into your workspace. For example, try running: ssh coder.<workspaceName>
Your workspace is now accessible via
ssh coder.<workspace_name> (e.g.,
ssh coder.myEnv if your workspace is named
Gateway operates in a client-server model, using an SSH connection to the remote host to install and start the server.
Setting up Gateway also involves picking a project directory, so if you have not already done so, you may wish to open a terminal on your Coder workspace and check out a copy of the project you intend to work on.
After installing Gateway on your local system, follow these steps to create a Connection and connect to your Coder workspace.

Web IDEs (code-server, JetBrains Projector, VNC, etc.) are defined in the template. See IDEs.
