Create an Environment

This article will walk you through the process of creating a new environment.

To begin, log in to Coder. You will automatically be redirected to the Environments page.

If this is your first time using coder, you'll see a Create Environment button in the middle of your screen; otherwise, you'll see a list of your existing environments.

Click either Create Environment (if available) or New Environment in the top-right to launch the creation window.

When prompted, provide the following information for the environment you want to be created:

Environment Name A friendly name for your environment
Image The Docker image you want to use as the base for your environment
Tag The version of the Image you want to use

By default, a new environment will be allocated resources (CPU Cores, Memory and Disk) based on its parent image. These values may be changed by configuring the Advanced section:

CPU Cores The number of CPU cores you'd like for your environment
Memory The amount of memory you'd like for your environment
Disk The amount of storage space you'd like for your environment

When done, click Create to proceed. Coder will redirect you to an overview page for your environment while it builds.

🚧

Image Resource Allocation Defaults

Coder displays a warning if you choose resource settings lower than the image-recommended default, but you can still create the environment.

.gitconfig files

Please note that if the image you're using to create your environment does not include a .gitconfig file, Coder will automatically generate one for you using the details found in your Coder Enterprise account.

You can modify the .gitconfig file, but we recommend using a dotfiles repo instead to customize your environment.
