Coder creates remote development machines so your team can develop from anywhere.

Manage less

  • Ensure your entire team is using the same tools and resources
    • Rollout critical updates to your developers with one command
  • Automatically shut down expensive cloud resources
  • Keep your source code and data behind your firewall

Code more

  • Build and test faster
    • Leveraging cloud CPUs, RAM, network speeds, etc.
  • Access your environment from any place on any client (even an iPad)
  • Onboard instantly then stay up to date continuously

Getting Started

Note: Coder is in an alpha state. Report issues here.

There are a few ways to install Coder: install script (macOS, Linux), docker-compose, or manually via the latest release (macOS, Windows, and Linux).

If you use the install script, you can preview what occurs during the install process:

curl -fsSL | sh -s -- --dry-run

To install, run:

curl -fsSL | sh

Once installed, you can start a production deployment with a single command:

# Automatically sets up an external access URL on *
coder server --tunnel

# Requires a PostgreSQL instance and external access URL
coder server --postgres-url <url> --access-url <url>

Use coder --help to get a complete list of flags and environment variables. Use our quickstart guide for a full walkthrough.
