code-server is VS Code running on a remote server, accessible through the browser.

Try it out:

  • Code on your Chromebook, tablet, and laptop with a consistent dev environment.
    • If you have a Windows or Mac workstation, more easily develop for Linux.
  • Take advantage of large cloud servers to speed up tests, compilations, downloads, and more.
  • Preserve battery life when you're on the go.
    • All intensive computation runs on your server.
    • You're no longer running excess instances of Chrome.

How to secure your setup.

Development

Known Issues

  • Creating custom VS Code extensions and debugging them doesn't work.

Future

  • Stay up to date! Get notified about new releases of code-server. Screenshot
  • Windows support.
  • Electron and Chrome OS applications to bridge the gap between local<->remote.
  • Run VS Code unit tests against our builds to ensure features work as expected.

Extensions

At the moment we can't use the official VSCode Marketplace. We've created a custom extension marketplace focused around open-sourced extensions. However, if you have access to the .vsix file, you can manually install the extension.

Telemetry

Use the --disable-telemetry flag or set DISABLE_TELEMETRY=true to disable tracking ENTIRELY.

We use data collected to improve code-server.

Development guides are coming soon.
