Installing Che

This section contains instructions to install Eclipse Che. The installation method depends on the target platform and the environment restrictions.

Che is available in two modes:

  • Single-user: Non-authenticated Che, lighter and suited for personal environments

  • Multi-user: Authenticated Che suited for organizations and developer teams

Prerequisites
  • A Kubernetes or OpenShift cluster to deploy Che on.

To use Che as a service, see: Eclipse Che hosted by Red Hat.

Installing Che on a local single-node cluster

Single-node clusters are suited only for testing or single-user development. Do not use such clusters to run Che for organizations or developer teams.
