Remote Development

At the heart of Diploi lies remote development, allowing you to easily work on any of your projects without the need for software installation or maintenance on your local machine, or dealing with containers. With just a single button press, you can begin your work without hassle.

You only need two things locally to get up and running:

VS Code

We recommend using VS Code for remote development, but you can use any IDE which supports connecting remotely via SSH.


Once you have created a deployment, simply click the “Open in VS Code” button visible on the “Overview” tab.
If you do not have the remote development extension installed, VS Code will prompt you to install it.


Your local VS Code configuration will be used for all remote environments, but certain features (like extensions) need to be configured on a per-deployment basis.

Other IDEs

Diploi supports any IDE capable of conneting to a remote machine via SSH. This includes terminal based IDEs like Vim.

Terminal Based IDEs

Simply open an SSH connection to your deployment, and install your favorite IDE.
