"Condenvy great software for development teams!"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Codenvy is that you only need access to the internet because it works from any browser and allows the integration of several development teams for the same project so that each user chooses who can be integrated into their work space, and is not required Using your IDE we can use our local IDE without any problem.

What do you dislike?

Being hosted in the cloud depends a lot on the internet connection so it can sometimes get very slow when working.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Working with Codenvy facilitates the work together and with external collaborators since the larger the projects, the better their operation will be because productivity is greatly increased.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Codeconvy helps our team a lot because it is much easier to develop because we only have to focus on our own instead of worrying about the configuration of the IDE so that it can admit different languages ​​in our work machines.

What Configuration Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Collaboration made easier"

What do you like best?

Connecting with our open source software, we are now able to allow our employment specialists work through workshops with student, as workshop setup time that used to take almost an hour now takes only a moment or two.

What do you dislike?

The cloud does not have a safe feeling, while it may have protections in place, it has quite a generic feel to the safety of use. No visible safety features, and I am unsure if I trust this cloud usage with discussing our business. We are still in testing mode with this software, and are not yet decided if we will permanently utilize this or not.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Teams and developers alike can use this as a simple software to collaborate efforts to new creations. Inexpensive solution to teamwork across the globe. Skeptical of the safety through the use of codenvy's cloud design.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating teams in a cloud work space makes it easy to work together from all over the globe. We are using this internationally, so my assistant may be in Japan, while I am in the USA, and we are still able to work together. The developers can use it for source code editing, debugging, and for building automation codes.

"Great developer tool"

What do you like best?

Great tool for on the spot developing with easy access and a great solution when switching device and/or having to develop on a device without pre-installed software on it.

Also find it good for changing between languages quick and easy and switching between diffrent projects in a few easy clicks.

What do you dislike?

Like all IDE's it takes a little while to get going and getting started with the project, but it's all about time and getting used to it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out and give it a shot is the best way to put it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits are the one named in what i like best about the product, but also the doors that this product open with how this will change the way we will use our devices. With a tool online that handles the processing etc the demand on having the hardware in the device decrease.

"Entorno de desarrollo formidable"

What do you like best?

La capacidad de tener instancias de servidores destinados al despliegue de tu proyecto o a las minuciosas unidades de pruebas directamente desde el navegador, muy bien establecido para proyectos web en general, soporta multiples plataformas y nuevas tecnologias de desarrollo, posee una completa y limpia integracion con GitHub y herramientas avanzadas.

What do you dislike?

Necesita una mejor experiencia de usuario, mucho mas guias de como hacer las cosas, es dificil de adoptar sobretodo para desarrolladores nuevos, en algunas ocaciones puede ser realmente lento y tener una interfaz sobrecargada con muchas opciones y herramientas a la misma vez.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Deberias considerarlo en proyectos complejos que requieran muchas dependencias entre sistemas operativos y una adecuada configuracion predeterminada.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Proyectos basados en NodeJS y Front-End en general, puede ser una grandiosa herramienta sobretodo por que puede hacer que tus proyectos los puedas implementar con mas rapidez y productividad que entornos locales que requieren instalaciones y configuraciones complejas.

"Highly compatible with current technologies and on the cloud."

What do you like best?

Remote work spaces on demand. Really stable infrastructure and compatible with the latest technologies in both web back end and front end, Java and Javascript's NodeJS.

What do you dislike?

There isn't really a flaw at the moment at least for me, been using it as a time saver so I don't have to setup development environments on-the-go.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you find yourself working out of the office too often and don't want to remote access to your services while using an unknown internet connection, you can use Codenvy as a cloud development environment. It's safe, solid and it will bring a bunch of utils to the table, so you won't miss almost anything from your office's work space.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Interns inclusion to our code base is really simple using premade work spaces in Codenvy.

Last minute editions can be done while out of the office easily with this, so We don't have to deal with security measures.

"On the Cloud!"

What do you like best?

Great remote coding tool.

I've tried few of these, Codenvy being the best so far. I'm into Java coding and sometimes I can't carry my laptop to everyplace. Codenvy setups help me take my coding work spaces to anywhere on the globe and still be able to work.

What do you dislike?

At the moment i haven't really found anything that i dislike, it could use more graphical customizing features. I try to not fry my eyes on weird looking IDEs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're one of those who can't carry a laptop all the time, or You just like working on the cloud, Codenvy is a fair shot. it's free for low consumption projects!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I don't use to carry a Laptop everywhere i go, sometimes i got to do some last minutes edits, this kind of tool help me in that matter with ease. There's no way you could be a full fledged programmer without one tool like Codenvy.

"Get a Project Started Easily"

What do you like best?

I really like that I don't have to set up my own development environment. Just select what project type you want and when you are ready to test your code choose a run configuration and press the run button.

What do you dislike?

Due to the utility of the IDE it can feel a bit cluttered on a small screen. I recommend using a larger monitor or a second screen if you plan on using a laptop.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try. There's a free tier so you don't have to spend any money up front to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am working on a few personal projects, nothing with a specific problem to solve. The biggest benefit is definitely that I don't have to set up development environments. Also the fact that it works on a chromebook is a huge bonus.

"Cloud based code management"

What do you like best?

Complete advanced code editor and projects management application, great for large teams, easy to learn and use, easy to deploy and run tests, advanced features like complete GitHub integration or last web technologies like NodeJs or Laravel, well suited in web applications development cycle, code builder and fastest automation.

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far, it continues improving and recently they launch a new branding application with new features and tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are facing problems to mantain large projects with many developers you should give a try, it can be a solid option specially when there are many technologies stacks used in same project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Large web projects automation and management, setting a structure base for projects, guidelines and development strategies can be easy, forcing large teams to mantain a high level quality in all projects.

"Cloud based enviroment integrated with last tech stack"

What do you like best?

I like the idea of multiple instances or workplaces to intuitively deploy and test code in development fase also that it's well integrated with source code repositories, projects start templates reduces a lot of boilerplate, the code editor it's well designed and looks everything fine with fonts and color syntax and has all features from classic code editors.

What do you dislike?

I think that it needs more guides and help about doing things with it, configure things can be a nightmare for new commers and the transition from a local enviroment to a cloud based should be easy and intuitively.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read how everything works before place critical projects in it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Code test and code maintenance, it solves a lot of problems in large projects with many tech stacks working together.

"Almost Awesome"

What do you like best?

I have been using DreamWeaver for years. Not the design view but the code view. I like Codenvy for many of the features that are similar to what I am used to. I like that I can click on an open or close tag in HTML and the related open/close tag is then highlighted so I can easily find the mismatched tags. Also, Codenvy highlights obvious errors and helps debug someone else's code. One of the coolest things though is the connection to git. My projects are easy to push and pull as needed to make them more accessible "anywhere". Not to mention that I can pick up where I left off by opening chrome on any machine.

What do you dislike?

FTP or SFTP is a must. Too may companies use cPanel for their hosting and cPanel and Git are not good friends yet. They are working on it, I hope, but they are not there yet so I need a way to upload changes without having to download them first.

Also, if I'm trying to fix something that has been done wrong repeatedly on a page, it would be nice to have the "Find" feature remember what I looked for last. And where is "Find and Replace"?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have a way to use this with your current needs. The lack of FTP or SFTP is sort of a killer. I can get around the issues with Find and Replace for now. It is definitely a good product that is coming a long and, for me, has replace DreamWeaver in a lot of ways as I have began moving to Chrome OS (and I'm loving it, btw).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I do a lot of website work so most of the problems I am solving are just minor development issues in PHP sites.

"IDE on the cloud done right."

What do you like best?

Having a remote IDE with all your files ready to run, edit, download is something you must have today if you're fully committed to development while away of your place or office.

Even if you're learning how to code, you can use this tool to run and test your code with ease, not bothering yourself installing and setting up the necessary software to make it run on your computer, which is awesome!

What do you dislike?

There are no graphical customization options, i like to have fancy editors with nice looking colors, there's no way to archieve this at this moment with Codenvy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remote code debugging / testing.

It's a free alternative to other on the cloud IDEs.

It even has Yeoman, it will help you automate your builds and create projects fast and without errors.

"Ready to go work spaces"

What do you like best?

- Free Cloud IDE available everywhere with little to no downtimes.

- Great UI, highly intuitive.

- Useful while working out of your work place, you can easily take your office anywhere on the globe with this tool.

What do you dislike?

There isn't really anything that I dislike about the software. It could use some theme customization capabilities or code editor colors customization, some people like their code editors in light colors with nicer colored syntax.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Remote working while out of the office used to be a pain in the head, I had to login through several layers of security to get into our code base. Now i simply login into a Codenvy's workspace, make my changes, run some backend magic and my changes will be uploaded to our private servers effortlessly.

"Highly usable IDE, rather ugly GUI."

What do you like best?

Having a cloud IDE available whenever on the globe can be extremely useful while working / studying abroad. I've had some amazing experiences with this IDE with some both technical and graphical flaws.

What do you dislike?

The Linting can be sometimes harsh when doing basic stuff, it shouldn't come setup from scratch.

Editor themes aren't available to modify, there's only one black theme and the code color presets are really ugly. Loading times can be sometimes high when connected to low-end internet speeds.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having a cloud based IDE can be handy sometimes while away from your workstation, I've used codenvy a couple times while away from my personal computer or hometown, it's been a bitter sweet experience using it while away from home, but it has helped me solving some last minute issues.

"Engaging, yet still requires refinement"

What do you like best?

I like the smoothness of the IDE and transitioning between the various files in a project. Additionally, transitioning from one project to another is smooth as well. I did not encounter any hiccups or slowness.

What do you dislike?

* Intelligent code completion is lacking (as far from my experience using Maven and Ruby)

* No apparent option for using a command line interface. Some projects like Ruby I find I can only progress if I can run commands. For instance using "gem" or "bundle" to handle the addition/removal of gems. This also prevents me from running my scripts for these projects to ensure they are working as intended.

* If I have a Git Submodule in my project, Codenvy clones the git project, but not the submodule, so I'm missing parts of my project.

* Lacking more recent versions of some technology like using Ruby 2.1. There's also no way to tell what version of Git is being used.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Review pricing terms in order to determine what will fit your need.

Start with small project with growth potential so as it progresses you may witness how Codenvy is able to handle it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problem of having to setup an environment for development. Especially in cases of contributing to open source projects, I can fork the project in my Github and then open that project in Codenvy in minutes!

This is a terrific benefit to quickly helping add one or two enhancements or testing out recent changes.

"Great workspace for developers"

What do you like best?

The developers have done a very high quality product. It contains a lot of interesting solutions. Such as code refactoring, multi mode and invitations. And if you have an account in Google, the registration may take a few minutes. But if you do not wish to use a Google account, the registration of this does not become complicated, and will remain the same simple. Codenvy supports a large number of languages ​​- Java, Java Script, PHP, Python, Ruby, HTML, and CSS. And their number is constantly increasing.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice if there was support for the russian language to the russian-speaking community has been able to use the service without problems. And I think you need to add more languages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Make some app for my clients and some for my friends. And just have a fun with service

"Cloud base editor with great support"

What do you like best?

A complete web based IDE, constantly support, new features added all the time, it's well suited for front-end projects, easy teamwork and GitHub integration, you don't need to install any platform runtime, you can debug and instantiate your project at the same time.

What do you dislike?

It can be slowly sometimes with large projects, UI is not very fiendly, poorly multi language support, few tutorials.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's great suited mostly for large teams, you can establish conventions across the teams easily and keep track of their work.

"Codeenv is not good enough for node.js development."

What do you like best?

The UI of Codenvy is great. There are so many feature in the menu. The quote for a free user is big enough for common usage. The integration with 3rd party tool (GitHub, Android and so on) are awesome.

What do you dislike?

The menu is complicated and hard to figure out the right place for my function. It is not friendly to node.js development.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are developing tool with Java, or creating an Android app, choose Codenvy, it is awesome. However, for other development, you could take a try.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using Codenvy to develop a node.js tool on the cloud. I can access my code, edit and run it on any machine from anywhere. It is so convenient to code in the cloud.

"First online IDE I use, loving it !"

What do you like best?

The number of languages available is really great, and for each of them, your provided a complete environment to work, would it be web or not :)

The IDE is very comfortable and intuitive. I never used online IDEs before, nor VMs, so runenrs and VMs were pretty new to me, and I understood it perfectly. For web apps, a link is provided when running the app and that's that, you can access your project that easily.

What do you dislike?

The project creation is fine, but could be improved a lot visually, or mostly the whole website except the IDE.

Does it really matter ? I'm not sure it does as you're gonna spend most of your time in the IDE, but it's true that having a pretty website and pretty docs is nice to have :).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Well, coming form basics "localhost" IDEs, I must say I love it and definitely gonna keep using it ! Worth the try :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a junior, I need to share my code around to get feedbacks and let other be able to access my code, while it is not interesting to me to get all this on a public repo (github).

"Could be the Desktop IDE Replacement You've Hoped For?"

What do you like best?

I have been exploring several cloud-based IDE platforms for the last year. The IDE is the last tie-back to a local machine for me. Once I break that tie, I am free to develop anywhere, any time, on any device.

I have had a broad range of experiences with the leading cloud based IDE's. I have to say, after a few days of exploration and testing existing projects, imported from GitHub, I am very impressed. Codenvy seems to meet the majority of needs I have as a develop to partially or fully replace my local IDE for the types of projects I work on.

What do you dislike?

A few commenter remarked about the steep learning curve. I would concur, opening Codenvy for the first time, and getting your barrings is a bit intimidation. The sample project and interactive demo were helpful, but didn't help me feel more at home, initially. However, this could probably be said of many modern, full-featured IDEs (WebStrorm, NetBeans, VisualStudio, etc.). I think after a few projects, it would seem at natural as booting up Eclipse.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Test other leading cloud based IDE's in order to fairly evaluate Codenvy. Cloud9 is a solid competitor in some aspects to check out (c9.io). The challenge is picking one of the crowd that will survive this early stage product development and be around to support developers for awhile. Seems like Codenvy is off to a good start.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ability to remove the dependency on a fixed development workstation (device) with a local IDE, for software development and testing.

"Top notch IDE for web dev."

What do you like best?

The development environment is GREAT for web apps and even full fledged websites. The easy to use dashboard is fantastic and updated dashboard makes it so easy a caveman could do it. The IDE itself feels like working in Eclipse or Netbeans so it has a familiar feel but it's not the same.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve is steep. I have not yet managed to get "Hello World" to run in any language (including Python). Ease of use gets a D+ at best. It's easy to create a project, edit the project, and save the project, but running the project feels like I need formal training. This is a turn off for me. Hello World in Python especially should be a 1,2,3 task.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep your options open and know exactly what you need and when/how you need it. I found codenvy while looking for a cloud IDE that would allow me to complete Java SE projects while in ChromeOS. I don't think codenvy will be the way to go.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Codenvy provides an IDE environment on ChromeOS which allows me to carry projects across devices.

"Seamlessly code editor"

What do you like best?

Complete cloud base programming environment, it supports top web frameworks, it's well suited for large projects with many coders, seamlessly GitHub integration, code editing and testing.

What do you dislike?

UI is kind of complicated, it runs slowly, a few tutorials about it, it supports a few popular languages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A great editor alternative, you can have many different projects with all necessary tools, if you have a large project with many coders you should try it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Web applications projects, JS/HTML/CSS editing, project management, code testing, you can use it in all different operating systems or low-end computers, you have a complete programming environment without installing any dependencies or frameworks.

"First time user of codenvy"

What do you like best?

This program is versatile and works among many different platforms c++, Fortran, Python, etc. It also was a great addition to my chrome book, considering that the types of applications compatible with the chrome is very limited.

What do you dislike?

I had problems executing simple c++ programs that I developed in my intro to programming class. I'm not sure why , considering that the programs would run fine on visual studio but not on codenvy. This is frustrating since I am not able to practice writing the c++ assignments on my laptop. This means that I will have to either work in the computer lab at or at my home computer vs. being able to write c++ programs on the go. I hope this gets resolved soon since I would like to be able to practice writing c++ programs on my chrome book laptop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Really useful Cloud IDE"

What do you like best?

It's free, robust and brings a bunch of services to the table so you can work with them while away from your desk. I've just met the new version of the IDE and I'm loving it. I can code on a Chromebook without hassle and without worrying about lacking of memory or headaches installing and setting up software in it.

What do you dislike?

Nothing at the moment, it's been an awesome experience in the past, it's way better now with this new UI and IDE structure.

What do you like best?

It works seamlessly and it very easy to understand.

No issues in setting up a project and start coding, good for getting job done.

Truly cloud based IDE with simple interface

Available as app on ChromeOS (another use of chromebook)

Good language support

Stable and does not crash or data loss.

Has GitHub support which is a major plus point,

Template projects available are for good for learning

What do you dislike?

Not many GUI customization options, default black-grey theme and language code color is default and cannot be changed.

FTP/SFTP is always required to update the files directly, however local storage option would be welcome. Sometimes it takes long to download projects while setting up.

Many many pros than cons.

"Coolest Cloud IDE I ever used!"

What do you like best?

- I personally like to having my workspace in the cloud and accesible anywhere.

- GitHub integration is pretty cool. Ability to use git commands in the workspace +1.

- Pretty close to the user experience I have in my local IDE.

What do you dislike?

- I prefer the dark UI to code. But some may prefer light UI.

- Lack of keyboard shortcuts.

- Better if we can have some more code generation options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm currently work as an engineer on WSO2 App Cloud. We integrated codenvy with our cloud platform and I must say codenvy added a huge value to our cloud platform.

Apart from that I personally use codenvy to play with my repos currently in GitHub with the use of its GitHub integration feature. Its pretty simple easy and cool!

"Cloud based IDE to use on my ChromeBook."

What do you like best?

Codenvy packages all of the components of a compiler, and IDE into one, online product. They do so in a well organized, polished product. Although this is all impressive, the real key point to understand is that they do it for FREE. The ability to type code on one computer and seamlessly access it on any other computer by signing into your account is also a great benefit of choosing to use Codenvy.

What do you dislike?

The program itself is not the most user-friendly, for someone who is just learning how to code, it can be a bit of a challenge to understand all of the options and components of a program. Loading times on projects can also be quite long (depending on what is in your project), but as an online IDE, this is probably to be expected. One other thing I have noticed is that while attempting to allow user inputted data, this IDE does not allow for user input in the console (or I just haven't found out how to do it yet, so this may be an incorrect dislike).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This program has allowed me to write C++ code on my ChromeBook, something that I was very concerned about not being able to do. It is nice to be able to write code on my main, home computer, and then take my ChromeBook out with me and be able to work on that same code while I am elsewhere.

"Truly able to code from anywhere!"

What do you like best?

I would say it is one of the easiest cloud IDEs to setup. It gives on demand real-time collaborative IDEs and it's quicker than Cloud9 in this department. It also has a fully functional free tier unlike most other similar cloud IDEs which is very important for someone like me who doesn't need heavy power while being in a learning stage. Also, it provides a terminal with root access which makes life very easy. So all in all, I would put it at the top of cloud IDEs list.

What do you dislike?

Lacks drag and drop support and could also provide SSH, FTP kind of access which is crucial for many projects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using it with my project on Heroku and it has helped me be more productive and also not worry much about the stack on local machine.

"Great way to keep the coding going. "

What do you like best?

A while ago, it was just the code you could access wherever you are. But now with Codenvy, even the environment is not required. You open the browser, you login and bam! You're good to go. It's has really taken programming to a new era.

What do you dislike?

The overhead of the page loading is a bit slow. But again, it has all these options to be taken care of. But I would really appreciate it if the loading speed was a bit faster.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was struggling to set up maven repositories in my localhost. It was not clear to me when thee are so many options. Do I go to maven? Gradle? Groovy, xml... But with a click of a mouse I was able to setup a spring rest mvc project in no time.

"It brings my chromebook back to life!"

What do you like best?

I can easily deploy anything web-related within the software, use live previews and some awesome syntax highlighting.

What do you dislike?

I might've had a problem or two connecting to Bitbucket, yet anything else besides this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It might look overwhelming at first sight, but give it a try. You won't look back to any web-based IDE.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using a chromebook for development is a hell with the low amount of development software available in the chrome webstore. But Codenvy have saved my life in so many ways when using it that i can't just use anything beside it.

"Amazing tool"

What do you like best?

I have a few different computers that I use. Instead of setting up the environment across different systems, Codenvy gives me a platform I can access anywhere I have access to a browser with the same set up.

What do you dislike?

Since its a cloud based IDE it's a bit slow but then again it's working amazingly to solve the problem it's trying to solve.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am working on a personal project.

"Enjoyable to use an online coding IDE that actually works. "

What do you like best?

Able to update server side code that readily updates without having to use and application like Filezilla to upload to the server. Also there are several launchers to test out an application.

What do you dislike?

It was a bit difficult to understand how exactly to work with the IDE at first but became easier as I began to understand the layout.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently I am using this for school to test out applications for assignments. As I said before this is a lot easier than using another application to upload my code to a server.

"A handy tool to write and debug code"

What do you like best?

Codenvy targets me as a java software developer to run and debug applications in their hosted cloud IDE, while being able to share and collaborate during development and finally publish to a repository – e.g. Git – or a number of deployment platforms – e.g. Amazon, OpenShift or Google App Engine.

What do you dislike?

Always need internet. Also, hard to change mindset if using traditional IDEs for long time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Write code and collaborate

"User friendly interface for a novice developer."

What do you like best?

This online developing portal provides a User friendly interface for a novice developer. My initial experience was wonderful with this free facility.

What do you dislike?

There are definitely few things and glitches which a novice like me needs to over come in initial phase. I believe that this is because of lack of expertise and experience on my side.

Recommendations to others considering the product

May give it a trial with confidence.

"Codenvy - great option for kids learning to code on Chromebooks"

What do you like best?

I am looking into using Codenvy to help kids learn to code in Middle and High school. So far, it is looking like a great option for us!

What do you dislike?

So far the only negative is no obvious way to use BASIC, which is the language our teachers and students have been using for years.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We want kids to learn to code. So far, it is looking like a great option for us.
