Dev environments as code


Create an image

Build source-controlled Docker images with all tools and dependencies for a project


Distribute to your team

Share standardized environments to streamline collaboration & workflows, removing any installation and setup overhead


Start development

Developers can still use their own editor and configuration, while utilizing your powerful cloud environments

The problems with development running on local machines

Coder automates the creation of development environments from pre-configured images. Environments take minutes to create, saving hours of manual and error-prone effort. New team members can start contributing code immediately.

With Coder, updates to the underlying images can be automatically pushed out to environments created from those images, ensuring the whole team has the updates and , patches. No more, "well, it works on my machine”.

With Coder’s in-browser IDE support, development actions are centralized — all source code and data stay secured on the cluster or in authorized repositories. There is nothing sitting on a laptop waiting to get left in an Uber.

Coder allows devs to leverage the power, speed, and scalability of the cloud. Need more compute power for compilation and assembly? Spin up a new container with all the resources needed.

Coder provides extensive audit logs and metrics. Know exactly who is doing what and when within your cluster. Gain insights into developer time spent in specific environments and how team members are utilizing Coder.

Coder’s benefits

Consistent workspaces

Development environments are created in seconds from centralized image repositories. Updates to the underlying image can be pushed out to all environments using that image.

We’re here to explain any questions you might have. If you don’t see your question below, please don’t hesitate to contact our Support team

Coder is priced per user on a yearly basis. Once Coder is running you can create as many dev environments as needed for your team. The only limits are the capabilities of your infrastructure.

No. Coder is not SaaS. It is software that you must deploy and run it on your own infrastructure, either a public or private cloud.

This will vary depending upon the cloud provider you use, whether you run Coder on-premises, the number of dev environments you have running at any given moment, the scale of your Kubernetes cluster, and many other factors. For more information on the requirements to run Coder, see our documentation.

It will vary depending upon the procurement rules of the individual agency. Please contact our Public Sector team for more information:

Your purchase of Coder includes the platform, all updates during the duration of your contract, the ability to add one named user per seat purchased, as well as support from Coder. The purchase price does not include the infrastructure required to run the Coder platform.

Coder provides standard support for all paid accounts throughout the duration of the contract. Additional support with reduced response times is also available for an additional fee. During the free trial, users receive limited support through the community Slack channel, the published documentation, and video tutorials.

Yes! Contact your account manager for assistance or email

Code-server: the heart of Coder

Code-server is the primary open source project we maintain. It allows developers to use a browser to access remote dev environments running VS Code. Coder builds upon the success of code-server and adds features designed for enterprise teams including support for additional IDEs and advanced security features.
