Satisfy security and regulatory requirements related to development environments.

Benchmark group and individual performance

Benchmark group and individual performance

Quantifying development velocity and productivity is hard. Which projects are consuming the most build resources? What are the projects with the highest degree of sharing? Correlate group or individual performance against benchmarks to help everyone improve. We track, correlate, and report on activity across users, groups and administrators with embedded BI.

Improve efficiency with Jira and Jenkins bridges

Plug-ins for the Browser Era

Download the Codenvy SDK

The Codenvy SDK is a Java framework for building modern Web client applications that look great, perform well and make your users happy. It’s similar to the popular Eclipse RCP, but optimized for the Web.
Create packaged extensions

Create Web client apps packaged as extensions

Create extensions packaged as bundles and deployed into different runtimes. Extensions are packaged as WAR files that run in any servlet environment such as Jetty or Tomcat. You can also deploy them into Codenvy Enterprise or as an add-on to making them available to different users.
Provide a seamless update experience

Provide a seamless update experience for your users

Codenvy’s cloud architecture eliminates interoperability and update issues that plague downloadable Web applications. Your extensions are server updated and transparently provided to users.

Extend editors, languages, frameworks, or runtimes

Our APIs let you quickly build business and developer tooling by providing smart abstractions (like editors) with rich windowing components, HTML5 support, and stylish looks. There are abstractions for server- and client-side components with support for teamwork, your preferred Java development tools, and code re-use.
Browse the Codenvy SDK APIs


Browser compliant and secure

Write extensions in Java, GWT, and Guice and our compiler generates JavaScript for popular browsers. Break through the server abstraction, when needed, to include GWT, JavaScript, and HTML5. With fast rendering and modern Web technologies, you can move the most demanding developer applications to the Web platform with ease. No need for installations or plug-ins.

Port your Eclipse plug-ins

Our SDK is Eclipse-like, making the transition to cloud development easy. Data bindings, windowing APIs, and lifecycle development are modeled after Eclipse RCP best practices.

Track engagement and usage

Combine your extension with Tracked Factories to capture events, activity and usage metrics. We generate analysis, reports, history, and dashboards. It’s like Google Analytics for your extensions.

Open source freedom and support

The Codenvy SDK is a rock-solid base to build your developer tooling on. With many years of development, 40 open plug-ins, an open source license, commercial backing, and a growing community, you can trust the continuity of the Codenvy SDK.

The Codenvy Platform


The Codenvy Platform is constructed of modular blocks of functionality called Plug-Ins. Plug-Ins are packaged extensions that either add new capabilities or extend existing ones. Extensions are authored in Java with access to a rich set of APIs that provide helper capabilities across the development cloud. From windowing to builders to extensions for your own Web client applications, the only limits imposed on plug-ins are the extent of your creativity.
  • Packaged extensions authored in Java.
  • Build extensions for editors, builders, projects, runners, windows, accounts, and environments.
  • EMF, GME, GEF extensions for modeling and rich web applications.
  • Create client and server-side extensions.
  • Full development lifecycle including building, unit tests, debugging, packaging and updates.
Example Plug-ins: GitHub Repository

Codenvy SDK

The free and open Codenvy SDK is a Java Web Framework for building, packaging, and deploying Web client applications. The Codenvy SDK packages plug-ins into an application that uses GWT to generate optimized, cross-browser JavaScript. The SDK runs on our Web Client Platform, a lightweight runtime supported across many Java servlet containers. The WCP is similar to the Eclipse RCP, but optimized for the cloud. Included within the SDK are dozens of plug-ins, a default IDE, and tools for building, packaging and deploying your own plug-ins.
  • FREE & Open!
  • Single server and lightweight runtime for plug-ins.
  • Similar to the Eclipse RCP, but built for the cloud.
  • Leverage the WCP and deploy your application into any Java servlet.

Codenvy Platform

The Codenvy Platform is a continuous development cloud that provides scalability, security, manageability, and tenancy to populations of developers who are simultaneously developing, building, and debugging applications. The Codenvy Platform runs the Codenvy SDK at its core, and virtualizes access to plug-ins across a user, developer, and administrator population. We optimize the developer experience by virtualizing developer sessions across different physical nodes that service unique functions such as editing (I/O intensive), building (CPU intensive), and debugging (memory intensive). The Codenvy Platform provides multiple management points including API access, CLI, and system administration. Activity and access are logged in our intelligence and analytics system. The Codenvy Platform is optimized to deploy anywhere, whether it’s your raw VMs, private IAAS clouds, or hosted IAAS services.
