Description

Software development on your infrastructure. Offload your team's development from local workstations to cloud servers. Onboard developers in minutes. Build, test and compile at the speed of the cloud. Keep your source code and data behind your firewall.

> "By leveraging Terraform, Coder lets developers run any IDE on any compute platform including on-prem, AWS, Azure, GCP, DigitalOcean, Kubernetes, Docker, and more, with workspaces running on Linux, Windows, or Mac." - Kevin Fishner Chief of Staff at HashiCorp

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

  • Automatically shut down expensive cloud resources
  • Keep your source code and data behind your firewall

Code more

Getting Started

Note: Coder is in a beta state. Report issues here.

The easiest way to install Coder is to use our install script for Linux and macOS. For Windows, use the latest ..._installer.exe file from GitHub Releases.

To install, run:

curl -L https://coder.com/install.sh | sh

You can preview what occurs during the install process:

curl -L https://coder.com/install.sh | sh -s -- --dry-run

You can modify the installation process by including flags. Run the help command for reference:

curl -L https://coder.com/install.sh | sh -s -- --help

See [install](docs/install) for additional methods.

Once installed, you can start a production deployment1 with a single command:

# Automatically sets up an external access URL on *.try.coder.app
coder server

# Requires a PostgreSQL instance (version 13 or higher) and external access URL
coder server --postgres-url <url> --access-url <url>

1 The embedded database is great for trying out Coder with small deployments, but do consider using an external database for increased assurance and control.

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