Open Source And Web-Based IDE For Coding Remotely – Codiad

Codiad is an open source web-based IDE application for writing and editing code online.

The application is built with PHP and doesn't require a SQL database but stores the data in JSON formatted PHP files.

Its interface has 3 panels:

  • project/file manager
  • code editor
  • menu/actions 

where the left and right panels can be hidden on request for maximum coding space.

Codia Web-Based IDE

Codiad is capable of handling multiple projects with a single installation and any number of users can login to the application.

It removes the need of creating a local test/development environment and enables anyone to keep all data + the development process in a remote server.

Even though the application is still in an early development phase, it is mentioned to be stable and has an API for further improvements.

    Any good idea, how to configure codiad to use it for online editing every file of a website?

    In Codiad’s Google Group there is Q&A. I chaged the path of the projects.php and the path in the user.php file to a directory above Codiad’s installation.
