We are proud to announce today the launch of the first cloud platform to create scalable web apps and collaborate directly in your browser. Codesphere offers a powerful solution by combining:

  • code editor
  • git-ops and
  • cloud services

Codesphere boosts the productivity of every developer and is now available for all to use. Our vision is to develop the best and fastest solution for programming scalable Web Apps for developers like you (and us). If you want to develop the new YouTube or Spotify, Codesphere will be your first and best choice!

Until today, it has been hard for developers to…

As we were recently asked how Codesphere differentiates itself from Codespaces, an online editor for Github, we thought we could help clear some things up. If you were ever wondering what makes Codesphere unique, continue reading to find out!

Codespaces is an online code editor powered by VSCode specifically designed for Github. With the click of a button directly in your GitHub repository, it starts a remote VM, downloads the code, and lets users edit it with a special version of VSCode, which can be used from the browser.

This is really useful for making quick changes in some repo…

We’ve all probably seen the face detection box that pops up around people’s faces when you go to take a photo on your mobile camera. If you’ve ever wondered how our phones detect human faces, then this article is for you! We are going to be building a web app that recreates just that — an app able to recognize any human face in any image.

What is a facial recognition and how does it work?

To start off, a facial recognition system is a technology that is able to match a human face from a digital image by using…

Codesphere is a simple and powerful development platform that combines a collaborative IDE, GitOps, and cloud services to streamline the development of scalable web applications.

Nowadays it’s hard to imagine development without using git. That’s why in today’s article we’ll show you how to use Github in Codesphere.

Cloning from Github

Once you are signed in, navigate to the My Apps menu, and press the New App button. You can then click on Clone Repository, where you will be prompted to enter the Repository URL for the Repo you want to clone.

For GitHub, the URL for a repository can…

We have exciting news.. we read your feedback and listened, we just released v1.7.0 as the latest version of Codesphere!

What’s new?


  • We added Github integration support
  • We added ESlint code assistance


✓ improved overall sign-up and sign-in process

In addition, our team is currently working on allowing users to sign in with third-party accounts like GitHub and Google to ensure that our users can get started with Codesphere as quickly as possible. We will be adding more frameworks and soon you will be able to connect your own domain and so much more. Stay tuned for future releases!

Happy Coding!

With our recent launch, we’ve received a number of questions about Codesphere already. Happy to share our answers with all of you.

  1. What is Codesphere?

Codesphere is a simple and powerful platform that seamlessly combines a code editor, GitOps, and Cloud Services so that developers can build scalable web applications without wasting time setting up infrastructure. Codesphere provides automatic CI/CD and managed infrastructure with zero-config.

2. How can I use Codesphere?

We recently posted a video to help our users get started with Codesphere. Check it out:

3. Why should I use Codesphere?

Infrastructure management continues to be one…

We’re pleased to announce that the Codesphere IDE now supports sudo!
If you’ve ever worked in a Linux operating system, you’re probably familiar with the “sudo” command.

Sudo is a program for Unix-like systems that allows users to run programs with privileges of another user.

In the following article, we will show you some common sudo commands that you may come across as a web developer.

Updating the npm version globally

command: sudo npm i -g npm

Run sudo npm i -g npm in your terminal to update the npm version globally.

The Coronavirus pandemic has made video chat the primary method of communication that we rely on. Whether it’s for school, work, or just talking to friends and family, we end up video chatting almost every day in the age of Coronavirus. Contrary to popular belief, building your own video chat app is not too difficult.

In this tutorial, I’ll be outlining the structure of building a basic chat app with the following technologies:
* Node.js
* ExpressJS
* WebRTC(w/ PeerJS)
* Codesphere

If you’d like to follow along line by line, you can find the source…

At Codesphere, we want our users to be able to start coding without having to deal with a long and confusing setup process for their project. This is why Codesphere allows you to start coding and deploy your app within a matter of minutes!

To help explain how easy it is to get started with Codesphere, we recently released a tutorial video:

Check it out! Which other tutorial videos shall we make for you? Reach out to us and let us know.

Happy coding!

Codesphere is a development ecosystem that combines a collaborative IDE, GitOps, and cloud services to streamline the development of scalable web applications.

Nowadays it’s hard to imagine development without using git. That’s why in today’s article we’ll show you how to clone your git project from GitHub and open it in Codesphere.

Clearing the working directory

At the moment, when a new app is created, Codesphere clones a default project from GitHub. To quickly clear out the working directory we can run the following command in the terminal:

rm -rf ..?* .[!.]* *

Cloning a GitHub repository

To clone a GitHub repository, we first need to find the…


NO CONFIG — just code, run and scale web apps in your browser. #justcode
