Pair programming around the office or around the globe
CodeTogether is the perfect blend of functionality and simplicity, designed by a team of remote developers that rely on collaboration. Whether you are on an Agile team that uses pair programming as part of your regular software development flow or just use pair programming for the occasional troubleshooting session, CodeTogether is the best tool for pair programming, and mob programming too! If you’ve been using screen sharing or an online code editor for collaborative coding, you’ll be amazed at the difference!
4% CPU of Screen Sharing
Stay Together or Code Alone
The host controls driving and editing privileges for the session. If permitted, participants can code or explore on their own or with any group, and even simultaneously edit files just like in Google Docs.
A Tale of Two Coders
The best of times with CodeTogether, the worst of times with screen sharing
Host a session in seconds
Sometimes it’s nice to get a little help from your friends, but not if it means disrupting your flow. After adding CodeTogether to your Eclipse, VS Code, or IntelliJ, it only takes a few seconds to start a collaborative coding session. Simply share the session’s link with anyone you like. They join the session from either their local IDE (even if it’s different from yours) or a web browser (with the theme and key bindings of their preferred IDE).
New to 3.1, the host determines how participants join a session and which privileges they will have. For tighter controls, the host can choose to require authorization for each participant when they attempt to join the session. In this situation, the participant will not be allowed to join the session until the request is approved by the host. The host also determines which rights participants have within a session, including whether or not they can drive or edit the shared files.
Host-provided language smarts
For real pair programming, you want more than a simple collaborative code editor. CodeTogether participants benefit from the host IDE’s language smarts. Even if you join from a browser, you still get content assist (aka IntelliSense) and as-you-type validation across the workspace. You can format code in a snap, and the Problems view lists all errors and lets you easily navigate to the referenced files.
Keep the code flowing
CodeTogether makes it easy to switch between groups of developers coding together, or even code on your own during a session. Same-file simultaneous editing lets developers edit files at the same time. With the CodeTogether view, you’ll never get lost—providing a nice overview of the session so you can quickly see who’s doing what, and jump into a new group or branch out on your own.
Share terminal and console output
New to Version 3.2, a shared terminal allows participants to observe commands the host is executing in their IDE’s terminal view, along with the corresponding output. Our next release will build on this feature, providing participants write access to the shared terminal. Another handy feature lets the host share their console so participants can view the output of programs and unit tests.
Very good tool!
This is sick
Awesome job guys!
Wow great 🙂

“My students have been using CodeTogether this semester to help work at a distance. They have uniformly and overwhelmingly enjoyed the experience. Many of them have Eclipse experience, and have reported being able to do significantly more together using your product than with Eclipse alone.“
—Jason Hemann Lecturer, Northeastern University
very fun experience!!
just awesome, thx
you are the champions
It’s damn great
Keep source behind the firewall
CodeTogether is designed to keep your code safe and secure by keeping the full source code on the host system and only relaying necessary information with end-to-end encryption. Many companies have embraced Agile software development techniques like pair programming and mob programming. For those organizations with strict security measures that require all code to remain on-premises, we also offer an Enterprise version that allows you to roll out CodeTogether internally and keep your source 100% behind the firewall.
Beats screen sharing!
Edits are immediately synced for all to see, no more painful lag time like you get with screen sharing! And no more squinting to see the screen, the code displays clearly in your IDE or your browser. CodeTogether allows you to code together online while providing the freedom that screen sharing lacks. Choose who to follow, or do your own investigation. Plus, you’re free to multi-task since only the project is shared and not the entire desktop.
Navigate projects with ease
Even if you choose to access the shared project from a browser, you have a variety of familiar ways to navigate the code. Quickly navigate to a file using the Explorer or Quick Open.
You can see both definitions and references to symbols inline, without losing your place in the code you’re editing. To navigate elsewhere, use the minimap, hyperlink navigation, Outline view, or even the filterable symbol list for ultra-quick browsing.
Find what you need with smart searches
It may not be your project, but there’s no reason to get lost in a remote pair programming session. When joining from a browser, CodeTogether makes it easy to search for content across the shared projects, and you can even use regular expressions for an advanced search. All occurrences are listed for each file, just click the instance you are looking for to jump to the line of code.
