Configure your IDE/editor

There are many ways to refine your IDE/editor experience in Gitpod.

Configuring an IDE preference

Per Project

There are multiple ways to configure an IDE/editor per project. Via the .gitpod.yml file, e.g. by installing default VS Code extensions, or by adding custom scripts. You can also use Docker as part of your per-project IDE/editor configuration.

Per User

To configure an IDE/editor as a default user preference for all new workspaces, you will need to update your user preferences. Please note: If you’ve already started a workspace already with a preference for a given editor/IDE, you’ll need to restart your workspace for the changes to take effect. If you want, you can also configure your own personal dotfiles repository.

Per Team

There are currently no ways to configure IDE/editor’s on a per-team basis.
