OpenDevin: Code Less, Make More

Check out the documentation Evaluation Benchmark

Welcome to OpenDevin, a platform for autonomous software engineers, powered by AI and LLMs.

OpenDevin agents collaborate with human developers to write code, fix bugs, and ship features.

⚑ Getting Started

The easiest way to run OpenDevin is inside a Docker container. It works best with the most recent version of Docker, 26.0.0. You must be using Linux, Mac OS, or WSL on Windows.

To start OpenDevin in a docker container, run the following commands in your terminal:


When you run the following command, files in ./workspace may be modified or deleted.

docker run -it \
    --pull=always \
    -e SANDBOX_USER_ID=$(id -u) \
    -e PERSIST_SANDBOX="true" \
    -e SSH_PASSWORD="make something up here" \
    -v $WORKSPACE_BASE:/opt/workspace_base \
    -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
    -p 3000:3000 \
    --add-host host.docker.internal:host-gateway \
    --name opendevin-app-$(date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S) \

You'll find OpenDevin running at http://localhost:3000 with access to ./workspace. To have OpenDevin operate on your code, place it in ./workspace.

OpenDevin will only have access to this workspace folder. The rest of your system will not be affected as it runs in a secured docker sandbox.
