Self-hosted dev environments.

IDEOpen Source
Our review

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.
