IDEs & Editors
In line with our ambition to “remove all friction from the developer experience”, Gitpod currently supports many popular IDE/editors e.g. JetBrains and VS Code through both the browser and on desktop. You can even use the command-line directly for editors like Vim (via SSH). There are many ways to configure your IDE/editor in Gitpod to match your preferred workflow or setup.

The three main ways to edit code or access a Gitpod workspace:
- Browser - Using VS Code Browser.
