Welcome to CodeTogether Live

The CodeTogether Live module allows you to share your IDE and coding sessions in real time. It's available as part of the CodeTogether HQ Intelligence Suite or as a standalone module.

With CodeTogether Live, everyone in the session sees changes instantly, even when working on the same file—similar to how Google Docs works for documents. CodeTogether Live is perfect for many uses: pair programming, mob programming, code review, project design, unit testing, education, interviews, remote development and more.

✓ Host-based intelligence

Because the host provides the language smarts, everyone gets exceptional content assist, validation & navigation, regardless of the IDE or browser they join from.

✓ Integrated communications

Audio, video, text chat, and screen sharing are available, plus cool extras like polls and reactions. You can even invite guests that aren't part of the coding session, perfect for getting customer feedback without sharing the code.

✓ Shared consoles & terminals

Host-controlled access, including optional write access for Team members.

✓ Shared local servers & databases

The host can share servers at any time during a session—great for testing web apps without deploying, or relaying a remote debug session, database connections or web sockets.

✓ Remote tests & launches

Guests can write tests, run tests and analyze results, allowing for test-driven development (TDD) in a remote environment. Guests can also execute run configurations from the host IDE.

✓ Plans for Everyone

From a Free plan with anonymous usage to Enterprise plans with on-premises deployment, CodeTogether Live has an option that meets your specific needs—view all plans.
