Pair Programming simultaneously the same way that Live Share VSCode


I would like to know if PHPStorm has a plugin that it works to pair programming simultaneously the same way that the plugin Live Share for VSCode IDE.





Unfortunately, no, we don't. Please leave your vote here:


That "issue" is 15 years old. Voting would be a waste of time at this point.


It wouldn't. We can't share any details currently but the feature request isn't abandoned or trashed.

Is it enough to release feature? (ᵔ.ᵔ) 


Well guys, considering that now more people are working from home than ever, I think this is an issue to quickly overcome. 


The best solution I could find is Floobits. It's a plugin that supports .

The Floobits for IntelliJ IDEA plugin is available for nearly all current IntelliJ IDEA based editors. Our plugin has been tested in WebStorm, RubyMine, PyCharm, AppCode, Android Studio, PHPStorm and IntelliJ Ultimate and Community Edition.

They have a free plan, but it's not free if you need private workspaces. Their plans.

More info: 

There's another Plugin called TeamHub you might want to compare.

I think the point is, it'd be nice if this functionality was built-in and free.


Last time I looked at it though Floobits required you to upload your code to their server to enable the remote pair programming. This is a deal breaker for many people. There's no chance the security folks at my company will ever allow that. Live Share in VS Code and the sharing in Atom do not require you to upload your code. 


Well if it is not happening now it never will


There's no certain ETA, but the Rider team (who are developing this feature) shared an internal demo video showing how it works, and it looks pretty neat. Considering the whole virus situation, I suppose we are going to see it soon.


CodeTogether just released a plugin for all IntelliJ-based IDEs, and you should be able to find it in the marketplace from within PHPStorm. Participants join using a browser, which provides a fast, IDE-like experience with all the capabilities you would expect, from IntelliSense and validation to analysis and navigation. Eclipse and VS Code are also supported, so in a team using different IDEs, anyone can host a session and your participants will get the same consistent experience. Here's a quick overview video.


Gitduck has just launched their IntelliJ plugin that lets you pair program with any IntelliJ IDE (2019+) and with VSCode. It's P2P (so no code upload to their servers!) and includes audio/video (no need for zoom/meet), while being pretty resource/bandwith light. Here is the plugin page.
