What we like
Create self-hosted remote dev environments locally (Docker) or in the cloud (GCP, AWS, Azure, Digital Ocean, k8s). Connect via VS Code, JetBrains, SSH. Create workspace templates via Terraform. Connect via port forwarding and share URLs using P2P WireGuard or Coder-provided relays. Supports dotfiles & secrets. Browser GUI or CLI.
What we don't like
Common issues with remote dev environments include latency and inability to work offline, but are these just edge cases? Requires some work to get Docker in Docker set up or you could use a full VM instance per workspace.
Console is the place developers go to find the best tools. Each week, our weekly newsletter picks out the most interesting tools and new releases. We keep track of everything - dev tools, devops, cloud, and APIs - so you don't have to.
✦ Disclosure: All reviews are editorially independent and partners must meet our selection criteria.
