Overview: Using Codewind as a hosted application on the cloud

Codewind can be used in one of three ways - locally, hosted as an application on a cloud, or remotely.

By using Codewind hosted as an application on the cloud, you can develop, build and run your code all by accessing Codewind via a browser window from your local desktop.

Follow the instructions to get started with using Codewind as an application hosted on the cloud. This will guide you through:

  1. Installing Eclipse Che to use with Codewind or preparing to use Codewind with an existing Eclipse Che installation
  2. Creating a Codewind connection by (i) adding an image registry and (ii) creating a Codewind workspace in Eclipse Che
  3. Creating a Codewind workspace in Eclipse Che
  4. Creating your first Codewind project

Next Steps

Install Eclipse Che to use with Codewind, or prepare to use Codewind with an existing Eclipse Che installation.

A quick way to try out Codewind before installing Codewind as a hosted application in your cloud is to use Codewind locally In this fully-local configuration, you create, develop, build and run your containerised applications on your local machine using your local IDE. See Getting Started with Codewind for local IDE options and step-by- step instructions.

Using Codewind Remotely If you want to use the other cloud-based configuration of Codewind, you must first follow the steps to install codewind locally. By using Codewind remotely, Codewind is configured for making code changes on your local IDE but building and running your application in the cloud.
