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.

Just the what I needed!

For a person looking for jobs or to majestic the next big move, this is just a perfect software that comes with no difficulty or training phase.

Pros

Wanted a quick platform to practice my coding skills for a job interview and just wow, what an easy interface to use. Easy compiling or even cross-compiling of code and really fast!

Cons

There is no way to change the compiler versions, at least for C. Some of the libraries I tend to use are old ones not supported by the latest compilers.

Awesome tool for coding practice and some light app deployment

Pros

*Platform is incredibly easy to set up, and functionality is well thought and organized in a way that is ready for big projects

Cons

*Platform is a bit slow, I would suggest optimize it more
*Add more integrations and features, like sync with code storage and maybe possibility to download work or fork it, so all can work independently.

A fantastic on the coding solution.

Pros

I use a handful programming environments. Codenvy is a easy to access I intuitive system that is usable from almost any system.

A platform that improves the workflow

Pros

The program provides remote workspaces on demand. I really like the autocomplete feature on this software, it is very easy to use and allows you to choose interfaces, methods and classes. The platform is easy to use, and I have based good examples that further simplify understanding of how the program works. Developers can use the program for editing source code, debugging and creating automation codes. The most important advantage, of course, is that I do not need to configure the development environment. The program is great for large teams and large projects that require some management and quality assurance.

Cons

I had a problem, I could not find an online quick start guide, and I needed to figure out how to set up and start the project. It would be nice if the platform worked with local storage. There are no visible security features, and I'm not sure if I can trust this cloud-based use when discussing our business.

Great for IDE online

Pros

Really impressive in their service. It stands out that they create such a good browser-based developer environment. Super convenient.

Cons

Still some kinks that need to be worked out. General bugs that don't detract a whole ton from the user experience.

Highly compatible with the current technologies

It can be a great tool for implementing projects with different tech stack, large teams and large base code.

Pros

It provides remote work spaces on demand.
It provides really stable infrastructure and compatible with the latest technologies in both web back end and front end, Java and Javascript's NodeJS.
It help me take my coding work spaces to anywhere on the globe and still be able to work

Cons

Due to the utility of the IDE it can feel a bit cluttered on a small screen.
Sometimes it can load slowly, it needs more tutorials and guides to use it.
It can be hard to start with, configuration settings and features can be messed up sometimes.

Amazing tool

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.

Coolest Cloud IDE

Pros

GitHub integration is pretty cool. Ability to use git commands in the workspace is amazing.
Pretty close to the user experience I have in my local IDE.

Cons

Lack of keyboard shortcuts.
Lacks drag and drop support
Could also provide SSH, FTP kind of access which is crucial for many projects.

One of the best online developer environment

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!

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.

As primary code editor using at home

Pros

can use in web browser. can respond quickly/not slow. that is good.
support various programming languages.
Can share work with others
can publish work as stack

Cons

it would be great if it works with local storage.
need improvement to editors,
1. more auto complete, for example, editing pom.xml of mavin file.
2. didn't see auto complete for java when I use it for java.
3. didn't see customization for project setup when I created java program. I don't like to have my package packed as che.examples as always.

Codenvy: A Heaven for me

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.

OK but needs some more work on set-up and maybe code completion

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

Beyond a Cloud IDE

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?

Codenvy Rocks!

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.
