- Host in VS Code, IntelliJ, or Eclipse*
- Join from your own IDE or a browser
- Host controls access privileges
- Option to share servers, terminals, and consoles
- Run remote unit tests and launches
- Code alone or with a group
- Same-file simultaneous editing
- No resource drain like with screen sharing
*Including IDEs based on these
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
It’s nice to get a little help from your friends, but not if it means disrupting your flow. After adding CodeTogether to VS Code, IntelliJ or Eclipse, it only takes a few seconds to start a collaborative coding session. Simply start the session and define access privileges. Team members join directly from their IDE (even if it’s different from yours). You can also share the session URL with guests that are not on the team and they can join from a web browser (with the theme and key bindings of their preferred IDE) of their IDE (without Team functionality).
Host-provided language smarts
Participants 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 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.
Very good tool!
This is sick
Awesome job guys!
Wow great 🙂
Our Customers Love CodeTogether
“Thank you for this brilliant tool. This is the first one that makes nearly instant sharing possible . . . overall a wonderful experience.“
— 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 fun experience!!
just awesome, thx
It’s damn great
Shared servers, terminals & consoles
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 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. New to 4.2, guests can now remotely run tests and analyze the results. Guests can even write tests, allowing test-driven development (TDD) in a remote environment. JUnit, TestNG, PHPUnit and pytest support are currently available, with support for additional frameworks coming soon. Guests can also execute run configurations from the host IDE, remotely launching applications with the ability to stop and monitor the invocations.
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 1.2/SHA256 encryption.
Keep source behind the firewall
For organizations with strict security measures that require all code to remain on-premises, we offer an Enterprise 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. Single sign-on (SSO) can now be configured using standard OAuth providers. If your team would like to try the on-premises version, please contact us to obtain your free trial license.
