With the help of Coder, you can move your developer workspaces to E2E Cloud. Using this tool, you can centralize the creation and management of your application development.
A fast developer can contribute to a new project using coder. Common problem developers face is the amount of time it takes to set up their local development environments. For each project they contribute, there are configuration mismatches like having the wrong version of node or python installed. This kills the productivity and progress.
At coder this problem can be solved. Suppose your developer is looking at a react project on Github that he wants to contribute to. The admin of the repository added this open encoder button to their readme to make it easier to get started. When the developer clicks that button, he is redirected to the coder UI which allows him to quickly create his environment using a container image that the admins have pre-approved.
This image contains all the dependencies and tools that your developer will need to contribute to this project. The admins have given recommended specs for this environment but developer also is able to increase these if needed using the power of cloud compute which makes it really easy to scale. The developer can also go ahead and keep it as standard and create his environment.
Once the environment is built, developer can install the dependencies and checkout a branch for his feature. The developer can use his local terminal with ssh but he can also use the built-in terminal coder provides for ease of use.
You can see the current directory and react repository already cloned down since the developer is using a container image with his dependencies installed. The developer already have Git and node installed so he can go ahead and check out a branch. Finally, the developer can run an NPN install which will install all the dev dependencies that he needs.
The developer can also be able to view and share the local version of the web app as he is making changes. The developer can accomplish this with dev URLs that allows you to expose ports within your containers so you can access them through the browser. For instance, the developer can expose port 3000 for his react app and the access controls allow him to share this url with other people if needed.
Organizations can allow anyone in the team as authorized users for coder and organizations can also make this publicly accessible to the internet. If it is set to the organization, anyone in the team can see the dev environment that the developer is working.
In a matter of less than five minutes, your developer can create a secure development environment and make his contribution. All the source code remains on the coder cluster and we didn’t have to install anything special on the local machine. This means your developers can be up and running faster than ever in a world where remote development is critical. This allows your developers to contribute in a secure fashion while using any device with an internet connection this could be a Chromebook, thin client or even an iPad and removes the need for an expensive laptop.
