Perfect for All Kinds of Teams
No two teams look alike. Regardless of how your team chooses to collaborate, CodeTogether Teams can help!
Pairing & Mobbing
Perfect for collaboration across the office or around the globe. Supports multiple groups coding at the same time with a seamless flow for moving between groups.
It’s simple to host a peer review, even if everyone uses different IDEs. The host maintains control, granting read-only access or letting others code too.
Nowhere is team collaboration more important than in design. CodeTogether is great for designing the object model to start your project off right.
A good test suite helps your team find bugs early. Remotely run unit tests and analyze results, launch apps, and view shared output and console windows.

Host a session in seconds
CodeTogether Teams is designed to make working in a team environment seamless. After adding CodeTogether to VS Code, IntelliJ or Eclipse, it only takes a few seconds to start a collaborative coding session. Team members join directly from their IDE (even if it’s different from the host’s) or a browser (using the theme and key bindings of their preferred IDE), with access to advanced team-only features like write-access terminals and shared servers. The host can also allow free guests to join the session and fine-tune access rights—perfect when team members need full access, but guests need to be in an observation-only mode.
Host-provided language smarts
Team members and free guests all benefit from the host IDE’s language smarts, providing key functionality like content assist (aka IntelliSense) and as-you-type validation across the workspace, and rename refactoring. Host-provided smarts also allows you to easily navigate the code, with features like call and type hierarchies, open symbol, full file content search, Outline view, minimap, inline definitions and references to symbols, and much more.
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 CodeTogether Teams, you can see all active remote sessions and online teammates in the CodeTogether view. From this one simple view, you can easily join a session, invite teammates to join, or ask teammates to host.
This is sick
Awesome job guys!
Wow great 🙂
Our Customers Love CodeTogether
“CodeTogether is a really brilliant solution for ensemble coding remotely. Especially since it integrates into different IDEs simultaneously. No more discussion on which IDE to use. Everyone uses their fav.“
— Astrid Sawatzky Lead Developer, Thera-Pi
“Between its editor-agnosticism and collaborative flexibility, CodeTogether now looks like the best option for many real-world teams.“
—Joel Falconer Managing Editor, SitePoint
“I just did a quick trial run of CodeTogether and I liked it. Used it with an Eclipse Java project, and really liked how easy it was to switch drivers and still communicate as the navigator with mouse selections.“
—Shane Currier Software Developer, Phoenix Labs
“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 easy to use!
very fun experience!!
just awesome, thx
Why didn’t I use it earlier?
It’s damn great
Built-in communication tools include audio, video, text chat and screen sharing. Anyone in the session can start an audio/video bridge via a simple toggle, which can easily be joined by anyone in the session. You can also invite guests who only have access to the communication tools and not the actual code—perfect for getting customer feedback. You can have up to 50 A/V only guests in addition to the 50 guests allowed on a Teams plan. A toolbar with basic capabilities is included in the IDE, however, the audio/video bridge is managed in your browser to keep your IDE uncluttered. Access cool features like polls and reactions from the browser.
Shared servers, terminals & consoles
With CodeTogether Teams, hosts can share servers—great for testing web apps without deploying, or even relaying a remote debug session, database connections or web sockets. A shared terminal allows guests to observe commands the host is executing in the terminal view with the corresponding output. The host controls access to servers and terminals, with the option to grant team members write access to terminals. Another handy feature lets the host share consoles so participants can view the output of programs and unit tests.
Run Tests & Launches
A good test suite is a great way to catch bugs early and improve productivity. Guests can now remotely run tests and analyze the results. They can even write tests, allowing test-driven development (TDD) in a remote environment with support for JUnit, TestNG, PHPUnit and pytest. Guests can also execute run configurations from the host IDE, remotely launching applications with the ability to stop and monitor the invocations. CodeTogether Teams provides an extra level of security, allowing the host to prevent guests from running tests and launches.

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 using end-to-end encryption. When you start a CodeTogether session, a unique key is generated for the session. This key is used for AES-GCM encryption at the host and all participants. Our servers never receive this key. The Edge backend server has the responsibility of routing requests between edge clients, using TLS 1.3/SHA256 encryption.
Keep source behind the firewall
For organizations with strict security measures, we offer an on-premises version that allows you to roll out CodeTogether internally and keep your source 100% behind the firewall. The On-Premises version of CodeTogether is located on your server and does not connect to any external servers. Simple single server or redundant distributed multi-server configurations are available, and single sign-on (SSO) can be configured using standard OAuth providers. A metrics dashboard provides access to real time information and historical usage trends. If your team would like to try the on-premises version, please contact us to obtain your free trial license.
