Code Ocean's starter environments attempt to cover the majority of scientific use cases. If you need more than one language, you can set that up starting from a pre-existing starter environment.

Code Ocean can also support languages that don't have a pre-existing environment. To do so:

  • From Code Ocean's dashboard, click 'New Compute Capsule'
  • In the Environment tab, under 'Starter Environment' select 'Ubuntu Linux 18.04'. This will initiate a compute capsule with no scientific programming languages pre-installed. This will install just the basics, such as git and curl, so you can customize your environment. 

Code Ocean provides setup instructions for a number of additional languages, as well as examples. For instance:

If you have additional languages that you would like us to support, please reach out through live chat or by emailing support@codeocean.com, and we will be happy to help.
