code-server is VS Code running on a remote server, accessible through the browser.

Try it out:

docker run -it -p -v "$PWD:/home/coder/project" codercom/code-server
  • Code anywhere: Code on your Chromebook, tablet, and laptop with a consistent dev environment. Develop on a Linux machine and pick up from any device with a web browser.
  • Server-powered: Take advantage of large cloud servers to speed up tests, compilations, downloads, and more. Preserve battery life when you're on the go since all intensive computation runs on your server.
