We're spending too much time managing environments, not code.
When a contributor adds a new development tool, updates an environment variable, or adds a package — everyone needs to update their local machine.
This only gets more complicated as the complexity of your application and the number of contributors grows.
A good tool doesn't force you into a new pattern, it should extend your existing experience.
The solution isn’t coding in a web app. It's something baked into the background that lets you use any of your existing tools — whether you're rolling your own Emacs config, using your preferred VSCode extensions, or rooted in JetBrains IDEs.
We built Brev to let you just code. Use your local tools, connected to a cloud computer.
Don't do anything differently — use your tools like you normally do. But behind the scenes, we're connecting those tools to a powerful computer in the cloud.
