Jetbrains gateway on Android?

Hi,

I'd like to know if Jetbrains has plans to deploy the new Gateway service on Android and/or IPadOS.

That would be the perfect use case. Hopefully this time they didn't pick Java/JRE to develop Gateway otherwise we'll never have it on tablets :(

Do you mean the Gateway itself which provides connection settings/management to the remote servers or using these OSes as a backend for remote IDE?

The gateway client, the backend would still run on a regular linux/windows server

Thanks for reaching out! Could you tell us a bit more about your use case?

JetBrains Client is in fact JVM based, so unfortunately this isn't something we can deliver soon.

My use case is that sometimes when I'm in a hurry I just take my Android tablet with a detacheable keyboard with me and go for the day with it. I know the tablet has plenty of battery for the day and 4G connectivity so I can use it in the middle of a park for instance. The only thing that lacks is the proper tools to do my work, in that case, the Jetbrains IDE suite. Jetbrains Gateway would have been the perfect tool since I could have my work env in the cloud that is shared between my main computer and my tablet, but I can't run it on either Android or IPadOS so that's a bummer. IPad with M1 chips has plenty of processing power but with Jetbrais gateway my hope was that it would work everywhere, even on Android tablets with a less powerful SOC like Samsung galaxy tabs.

That feature would be so great, literaly meaning having access to our dev environment remotely using the JB Gateway on Android, definitely something i could pay for it.

Same here, I will end up buying a MacBook Air instead of an Android tablet JUST BECAUSE this feature is not available on Android.

An IPad pro or Galaxy S7 ultra would have been the perfect fit for me, but not at the cost of not being able to use Pycharm on them.

I would also love to see this feature.

I could go out and write code wherever i want! My S8 Ultra has enough power to run such small applications like gateway ...

Another solution would be to host the ide on a server and access it via the browser (like vscode!!!)

would be awesome if i could use jetbrain tools on the go.

@jetbrains - pleaaassseee provide us a solution - i dont want to use vscode. 😝
