Cross-IDE support means everyone stays in the environment they know and love—
whether a different version, or even a different IDE.

Live share your IDE for real-time collaborative development

CodeTogether is the perfect blend of functionality and simplicity, designed by a team of remote developers that rely on collaborative development. Whether you are on an Agile team that uses pair programming as part of your regular software development flow or you just like to live share your code in the occasional troubleshooting session, CodeTogether is the best tool for pair programming, mob programming, code review, and more! If you’ve been using screen sharing or an online code editor for collaborative coding, you’ll be amazed at the difference! Seeing is believing—watch this video to see CodeTogether in action.


Instant Live Sharing

Host or join a live coding session from Eclipse, IntelliJ or VS Code. With IDE to IDE support, guests can live code with others directly from their local IDE—even if it’s different. True collaboration without repository cloning or a learning curve.


Browser Optional

Share a link and teammates can join a live sharing session from any modern browser. No registration, download or install required—they just select the theme and key bindings of their preferred IDE and start typing!


4% CPU of Screen Sharing

Get a nice IDE-like experience without the resource drain you get from screen sharing tools. CodeTogether requires minimal network bandwidth and consumes only 4% of the CPU load associated with screen sharing.


Corporate Level Security

Projects remain on your computer—only required data is relayed to participants and our backend using full end-to-end encryption. An on-premises version that keeps all source behind your firewall is also available.


Host-Provided Intelligence

Much more than a shared code editor! The host provides language smarts so everyone gets key functionality, like content assist and validation, whether joining from a browser or IDE, regardless of configuration.


Stay Together or Code Alone

The host controls driving and editing privileges for the session. If the host permits, guests can code or explore on their own or with any group, and even simultaneously edit files just like in Google Docs. 

A Tale of Two Coders

The best of times with CodeTogether, the worst of times with screen sharing

Host a session in seconds

It’s nice to get a little help from your friends, but not if it means disrupting your flow. After adding CodeTogether to VS Code, IntelliJ or Eclipse, it only takes seconds to live share your code with others. Simply click a button, define access privileges, and then invite others to join. Invitees join from their IDE (even if it’s different from yours) or a web browser (with the theme and key bindings of their preferred IDE).

Host a live share session in seconds
Language smarts

Host-provided language smarts

For real pair programming, you want more than a simple collaborative code editor. The host’s IDE provides language-smarts for a superior coding experience that includes content assist (aka IntelliSense), as-you-type validation across the workspace, and rename refactoring. You’ll also appreciate the multitude of ways you can navigate and visualize your code, including call and type hierarchies, open symbol, full file content searchOutline viewminimap, inline definitions and references to symbols, and much more.

Keep the code flowing

CodeTogether makes it easy to switch between groups of developers coding together, or even code on your own when you live share a coding session. Same-file simultaneous editing lets developers edit files at the same time. With the CodeTogether view, you’ll never get lost—providing a nice overview of the session so you can quickly see who’s doing what, and jump into a new group or branch out on your own. 

Keep code flowing


It’s wonderful!!

working great

You rock!

Very good tool!

This is sick

Absolutely fantastic 

Thank you!

Awesome job guys!

Wow great 🙂


Our Customers Love CodeTogether

Thank you for this brilliant tool. This is the first one that makes nearly instant sharing possible . . . overall a wonderful experience.

Astrid Sawatzky  Lead Developer, Thera-Pi

Between its editor-agnosticism and collaborative flexibility, CodeTogether now looks like the best option for many real-world teams.

Joel Falconer  Managing Editor, SitePoint

I just did a quick trial run of CodeTogether and I liked it. Used it with an Eclipse Java project, and really liked how easy it was to switch drivers and still communicate as the navigator with mouse selections.

Shane Currier  Software Developer, Phoenix Labs

My students have been using CodeTogether this semester to help work at a distance. They have uniformly and overwhelmingly enjoyed the experience. Many of them have Eclipse experience, and have reported being able to do significantly more together using your product than with Eclipse alone.

Jason Hemann Lecturer, Northeastern University

super impressed!

very helpful



very useful!

very fun experience!!


just awesome, thx

great tool


It’s damn great

Integrated Communication

New in CodeTogether 5.0—built-in communication tools including audio, video, text chat and screen sharing. Anyone in the session can start an audio/video bridge via a simple toggle, which can easily be joined by anyone in the session. You can also invite guests who only have access to the communication tools and not the actual code—perfect for getting customer feedback. A toolbar with basic capabilities is included in the IDE, however, the audio/video bridge is managed in your browser to keep your IDE uncluttered. Access cool features like polls and reactions from the browser.

Share servers, terminals and consoles

Shared servers, terminals & consoles

Hosts can share servers—great for testing web apps without deploying, or even relaying a remote debug session, database connections or web sockets. A shared terminal allows guests to observe commands the host is executing in the terminal view with the corresponding output. The host controls access to servers and terminals, with the option to grant write access to terminals if on a Teams or On-Premises plan. Another handy feature lets the host share consoles so participants can view the output of programs and unit tests.

Run Tests & Launches

A good test suite is a great way to catch bugs early and improve productivity. Guests can now remotely run tests and analyze the results. They can even write tests, allowing test-driven development (TDD) in a remote environment. JUnit, TestNG, PHPUnit and pytest support are currently available, with support for additional frameworks coming soon. Guests can also execute run configurations from the host IDE, remotely launching applications with the ability to stop and monitor the invocations.

Live share with teams

Exceptional support for teams

CodeTogether Teams delivers a superior user experience. Start your team and everyone enjoys direct join—no need to send invite URLs each time you start a session. The CodeTogether view becomes command central with an overview of all teams and remote sessions, and lets team members quickly add/join teams and sessions, as well as invite others to host or join sessions. Add an extra level of security by only allowing team members to join a session, or if you invite non-team members, you can prohibit them from driving or editing files.

Keep source behind the firewall

For organizations with strict security measures that require all code to remain on-premises, we offer an Enterprise version that allows you to roll out CodeTogether internally and keep your source 100% behind the firewall. The On-Premises version of CodeTogether is located on your server and does not connect to any external servers. Single sign-on (SSO) can now be configured using standard OAuth providers. If your team would like to try the on-premises version, please contact us to obtain your free trial license.

Live share behind the firewall

End-to-end encryption

CodeTogether is designed to keep your code safe and secure by keeping the full source code on the host system and only relaying necessary information using end-to-end encryption. When you start a CodeTogether session, a unique key is generated for the session. This key is used for AES-GCM encryption at the host and all participants. Our servers never receive this key. The Edge backend server has the responsibility of routing requests between edge clients, using TLS 1.2/SHA256 encryption.

I have been using #CodeTogether by @Genuitec for a couple of weeks now and it is awesome, it is a must for remote teams. Honestly it is better than pair programming in person.
