Codenvy Software


 

Codenvy is a workspace platform for development and operations professionals. It enables users to edit, run and debug code. It offers cloud-based and on-premise deployments.

When users begin a new project, production runtimes are defined by existing Docker and Compose files. Runtimes are configured so developers can connect to them, and workspace agents inject root-privileged terminal, language services for auto-completion, and SSH access. Finally, a debugger is connected for code inspection.

Codenvy virtual workspaces allow developers to edit, save, build and debug code as though it were local. Workspaces can use the Eclipse Che browser-integrated development environment (IDE) or sync a desktop IDE. Workspaces can be shared within teams or with external users, and administrators can set user permissions and resources for each user. Integrations include JIRA and Jenkins.

Condenvy is available with subscription pricing. Support is available via email and through Github.

Pros

I have been using codenvy for my last project and it really rocks. It helps you to work everywhere you are making easy to develop your app. It's easy to use and I have founded nice examples that make it even easier to understand how it works. Recently they have made some many changes that makes it even better.

Cons

Due to the utility of the IDE it can feel a bit cluttered on a small screen. I recommend using a larger monitor or a second screen if you plan on using a laptop.

Pros

The fact that I am able to create my own programming language platforms and utilize them is great. especially for being a recent college graduate who taking the time to learn and test out different programming languages. It helps that you are able to use this without actually having to download software onto your PC.

Cons

I couldn't find online quick start guide and I had to figure it out how to setup and run the project.
It lags sometimes.

Codenvy Review!

Ease-of-use

Value for Money

Pros

I would say it is one of the easiest cloud IDEs to setup. It gives on demand real-time collaborative IDEs and it's quicker than Cloud9 in this department.
A while ago, it was just the code you could access wherever you are. But now with Codenvy, even the environment is not required. You open the browser, you login and bam! You're good to go. It's has really taken programming to a new era.

Cons

The overhead of the page loading is a bit slow. But again, it has all these options to be taken care of. But I would really appreciate it if the loading speed was a bit faster.

Codenvy is a great cloud IDE for the developers. I used it for my node.js and python project. I fall in love from when I use it. I use their service almost 1 year. Though at first, It looks too slow for me. But day by day the performance of this IDE become great.

Pros:

1. It's free upto 3 GB ram
2. Stable and Almost support several platform.
3. Github integration and dockerization.

Cons:

1. Need some plugin support.
2. Auto complete code.

Gave it a quick test drive for a simple java hello world from scratch.
Probably should have looked at the samples first, but...
If you start from scratch its making you do a lot of work

Pros

web based, seems like a cool idea.

Cons

Like I said, seems like for something simple you have to do a lot of work.
Did not try the Android, but don;t see how it could compete with the Google/IntellaJ for free

Advice to Others

You are close, seems like you need to automate more of the initial config.
Did not see gradle a build choice for java projects

The GUI is fantastic I have a great experience feeling that you are in a native installation without have to configure a thing, also since it runs in the cloud there is no overhead locally meaning that you don't need run the project in a virtual machine or container locally, lot of tools for debugging, git and datasource integration.

Pros

Cloud base so you can access anywhere
Project runs in a container remotely so you can use a cheap chromebook to access the GUI.
Best for open source projects since you don't really have locally your code.
No overhead locally.
Customs configurations for runners.
Lot of tools: Console, Terminal, git and data source integration.
profiles configurations.
learning curve really short if you are familiar with eclipse or sublime text

Cons

Don't know where really is your project, It is safe?

Advice to Others

When running, have to watch the 1GB that you have available so you project do not consume it. probably the pay version offers and upgrade for this.

I've just started using codenvy and like how stable it is. I've switched over from another cloud IDE solution that wasn't as stable.

Pros

It is very stable. Customer support is great. I like that the free version has an hour meter, but isn't limiting in any other way.

Cons

The GUI was a bit overwhelming at first, but that is just because there are so many features they have packed in.

Advice to Others

I'd recommend this platform to others. It's the most stable and feature packed of any cloud platforms I've tried.

Great app, it's like Cloud9, but with a better web-IDE. Also, it's very easy to add to a Git repo, even if the proyect has already started.

Pros

The IDE and Easy to Use. Also a very easy Git integration.

Cons

Lacks native support for Meteor. Also, it needs to work offline and syncronize later.

Advice to Others

Please, do support Meteor and add a boilerplate. Also, add a desktop client to work offline and later syncronize.

I had some troubles, as a beginner, trying to use this program, but in the end I found it very useful.

Pros

It works on a chromebook, and supports many languages, allowing you to put everything in one place and run it all at once

Cons

It can be hard to use and understand, as a beginner. Also, there is no input whrn running python without a work-around.

Tried to use it but things were too complex. Usually when I use an IDE, it's all familiar and I can easily use them without any effort. But all cloud IDEs seem to be too complex for my small brain to operate. Try to make it user friendly so that even people's grandparents can figure it out. But overall it was the best of all the cloud IDEs.

Codenvy is a very good Web IDE that can be used to build multiple projects with your own virtual server. It has syntax highlighting, works with ChromeOS, and is quite powerful. Unfortunately I have a project which requires legacy FTP support which I cannot use in Codenvy because it is not supported. Codenvy does work very well for my SSH project though and it is my favorite UI out of all the current Web IDE options. If they add FTP support, I would switch from using multiple Web IDEs to just using Codenvy.

Many moons ago I went to school to be a Computer Programmer Analyst. My Major was C++ with a minor in SQL and Java.

Currently my career path has taken me to become a System Administrator. I've been looking to get back into programming as I do some HTML5/CSS stuff on the side.

My personal company, I want to use more of a cloud based setup. I am considering purchasing Chromebooks as equipment and since the main framework we plan on using is Elm, I needed an environment that would support that. Enter Codenvy.

First off, it supports a ton of languages right off the hop. Even if I didn't want to use a framework, it has enough language support to get any project off the ground. The team based options are perfect and the support for adding frameworks like Elm are easy to follow.

I like how easy it is to create/import projects. You can import from GIT Repos, GITHUB, ZIP, or configuration files. Then you can export them back to the same sources. You can deploy the application from the IDE, you can even test/debug right from within the IDE.

I haven't spent a ton of time with it, but based on what I have, it's an amazing service that I hope does not go away anytime soon.

I'm using Codenvy for developing ongoing personal apps, when not in my main development station. While it's really complete and effectively comfortable, it has it's limitations. The first that really struck me, is that you don't have search/replace. Other keyboard shortcuts are either obscure, or inexistent. For small projects, it's totally recommendable, but it may not be a great option for enterprise-grade projects.

Some pros and cons:

Pros: It's powerful. It's fast. It's efficient. On top of those, it's FREE!

Cons: Not user-friendly. Not suitable for beginners.
