URL parameter for the workspace IDE

If the URL for starting a new workspace doesn’t contain a URL parameter specifying the integrated development environment (IDE), the workspace loads with the default in-browser IDE, which is Microsoft Visual Studio Code - Open Source.

The URL parameter for specifying another supported IDE is che-editor=<editor_key>:

https://<che_fqdn>#<git_repository_url>?che-editor=<editor_key>
The workspace IDE might be already set for a remote Git repository in the che-editor.yaml file of the repository.
