While Alnoda workspaces offer many important benefits, such as project isolation and workspace portability, they also have some constraints which limit their usage.


Users engage with workspaces through a browser-based terminal and the workspace applications' browser-based interfaces. The speed of a browser-based integrated development environment (IDE) and browser-based terminal tends to be slower than a native system terminal or native IDE.

Resource consumption

Workspaces are running within Docker containers, and this can consume more computer resources, such as CPU, memory, and disk space.

Limited GUI support

Alnoda workspaces are primarily designed for command-line applications and browser-based applications. The current workspace design doesn't support running desktop applications with a graphical user interface within the workspaces. As a result, this restricts the potential to develop desktop applications or install them within the workspace environment.
