"A cloud-based IDE and developer workspace server: all in one"

What do you like best?

It allows multiple users to access various workspaces and resources. This has a huge impact on organizations with large scattered human resources.

Multiple team members can collaborate efficiently on a single workstation.

While working remotely the collaboration should be smooth. Which is very well insured in Eclipse Che. A team or a user can use their workspace from local IDE as well as the browser.

Administration can control what permissions for the workspace should a given user can have. Which is also a very good feature.

The user interface is easy to understand.

Also, you can deploy from Git.

What do you dislike?

Eclipse Che comes with Online IDE as well which is slow as compared to desktop.

The user interface is good but I feel sometimes it can be improved.

Setting up the IDE and opening it take some time that other IDEs.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are well likely and suitable software IDE's. It depends on what are your requirements, and necessities for the project. Shortlist few which fits your want. If you want to use collaborative and remote work done, then I would recommend to go for Eclipse Che.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

To collaborate on projects amongst the teammates we use Eclipse Che. Because of its Web-based interface, it is easy for us to collaborate regardless of OS and compatibility.

"Eclipse Che is a good IDE for Java developers looking for a cloud platform."

What do you like best?

Eclipse Che is closely tied to Eclipse. It’s still a powerful albeit sometimes slow, free IDE. It has the same quirks Eclipse often has and more often than not gets the job done. Eclipse Che is based around the cloud, allowing multiple users to access the code at the same time. Standard eclipse also offers this feature but at a different scale - it just allows file sync between clients.

What do you dislike?

Eclipse Che has all of the drawbacks standard Eclipse does too. On slower systems it’s auto-completion runs sub-par compared to some other IDEs, namely, IntelliJ. It does give the big advantage of being able to work completely on the cloud, meaning the time for a project to go live is minimal and isn’t a hassle, but fails utterly short when it randomly crashes or hangs, sometimes resulting in data loss. Its heavy reliance on the server that runs it results in catastrophes when LAN connection breaks for any reason.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Eclipse Che isn’t the beefiest developer workspace out there. It doesn’t handle Gradle or Maven the way Eclipse does. Its feature set is rather disappointingly lackluster compared to Eclipse’s competition - but Eclipse Che doesn’t have any competition in its exact league. It’s unique and can save you if you’re tight with time or resources, but it can be glitchy and unreliable from time to time.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Eclipse Che is again, a slightly niche product. It’s full potential is unleashed in rushes, where there’s no time to go live and everything has to be built right on the cloud. It’s drawbacks are a big reason not to use Che as a standard IDE, as it really isn’t one. It’s sure a helpful tool that a lot of us love, but has it’s quirks!

"Excellent IDE"

What do you like best?

I enjoy the customizability of the workspace and the dynamic structure of the IDE. Being able to run customized Linux commands with a single click has proven to be very helpful. Not only is it dynamic, but it also has a very clean aesthetic.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the inability to have custom workspace commands when running a file, such as being able to run the current open python file and what not. Setting up the IDE takes a little more effort than it should, and the IDE has a very long loading time, as opposed to others.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have a language or module that is not immediately available as a quick option, using an empty project and having custom commands in the Linux command line will act as a custom project. Using Eclipse Che is extremely easy and requires minimal setup. The built-in file linter is very helpful when meeting format standards, such as PEP-008 for Python.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I no longer need to look for a platform or IDE on the cloud to edit from and can run anything due to the advanced Linux shell. I can install packages and other tools depending on the language and external modules for specified projects.
