Codenvy provides a container-based development environment whose goal is to remove the need for developers to configure or maintain local or VM-based developer environments for their projects. Primary elements of the developer environment include:

Codenvy's platform is hosted on a microservices architecture that provides isolated workspaces for developing, compiling, and executing applications.[1] Codenvy is available as SaaS or as downloadable software for on-premises installations and is based on the Eclipse Foundation's Che project.[2]

Codenvy offers pre-defined build/run/debug environments for over 30 programming languages including Java, JavaScript, PHP, Android, Python, Ruby, C++ and Go. Alternatively, users can create custom environments using a JSON-based recipe and Dockerfiles (which can also be sourced from Docker Hub).[3]
