Run VS Code on any machine anywhere and access it in the browser.



  • Code on any device with a consistent development environment
  • Use cloud servers to speed up tests, compilations, downloads, and more
  • Preserve battery life when you're on the go; all intensive tasks run on your server


See requirements for minimum specs, as well as instructions on how to set up a Google VM on which you can install code-server.

TL;DR: Linux machine with WebSockets enabled, 1 GB RAM, and 2 vCPUs

Getting started

There are four ways to get started:

  1. Using the install script, which automates most of the process. The script uses the system package manager if possible.
  2. Manually installing code-server
  3. Deploy code-server to your team with coder/coder
  4. Using our one-click buttons and guides to deploy code-server to a cloud provider

If you use the install script, you can preview what occurs during the install process:

curl -fsSL | sh -s -- --dry-run

To install, run:

curl -fsSL | sh

When done, the install script prints out instructions for running and starting code-server.

Note To manage code-server for a team on your infrastructure, see: coder/coder

We also have an in-depth setup and configuration guide.
