Non-VS Code support is currently in beta.
Coder Enterprise offers full support for a wide range of editors, including VSCode, the JetBrains suite, and Eclipse. These editors are run in the remote environment and rendered directly in the browser. The support for multi editors is bundled with a window management system to give the application the look and feel of a native app.
Enable Multi Editor
Click your avatar to open a menu. Select Feature Preview to open the feature preview modal where the multi editor can be enabled.
Allow Pop-Up Windows
Coder Enterprise launches remote IDEs in their own windows; be sure to set your browser to allow pop-up windows so that you can use your IDE.
IDEs running via code-server require the same licenses as those running locally. You will need to acquire the correct licenses for your IDE(s) of choice before they are entirely usable when running through code-server.
Optimizing Displays: Zoom vs. Font Sizing
Remote IDEs display as they would locally with pixel-for-pixel rendering. Since remote IDEs run within a browser window, you can use the browser's default controls for zooming in/out. For example, if you're using Chrome on a Windows-based machine, you can zoom in by pressing Ctrl and +, zoom out by pressing Ctrl and -, and reset the screen to normal by pressing Ctrl and 0.
If you're using a high-resolution DPI display, changing the display and font preferences within the IDE instead of the browser may improve your experience and reduce blurriness.
- White flashes may occur when a pop-up or a new window appears
- "Double shift" IntelliJ search windows are too large
