The day my ping took countermeasures

Self-Hosted Spotlight: Atheos

Meet Atheos, a self-hosted, web-based IDE framework forked and completely rewritten from the inactive Codiad project. And while popular, similar-featured alternatives like code-server already exist, Atheos' bragging rights come in the form of minimal requirements and a low resource footprint – something not commonly found in modern IDEs.

Atheos supports many of the features one might expect from an IDE, including extensive language support, a plugin marketplace, real-time collaborative editing, multiple user support, error checking, and more. Its interface is minimal as well, consisting of two primary panels (project manager and editor) with a hidden third panel for system options.

It can be installed locally through cloning the software's GitHub repository or via Docker.
