Gitpod Goes Open Source with its IDE Platform; Launches Self-Hosted Cloud Package
Gitpod, a leading online IDE platform* for GitHub projects, is now available in open source. Sven Efftinge and Johannes Landgraf announced that Gitpod met Github’s open source criteria under AGPL license, allowing all Gitpod developers to create and analyze Kubernetes applications in a collaborative manner within their workflows.
*IDE stands for the integrated development environment, an automated software development.
Gitpod has been leading the front with its Kubernetes application for the past 10 years. It has created Theia, Xtext, Open VSX and many other projects as open source applications. Before going open source, Gitpod was closed to community development since its inception.
