Hi! Maybe I'm missing something here, but if what you really need is:

a cheap and steady web ide solution to have an identical environment from many machines

couldn't you use the service directly? It's totally free, steady, and allows you to configure any environment you like via YML config files and/or Dockerfiles.

Plus it works out of the box, with hosting, security and access control already figured out for you.

Gitpod is a great solution, indeed. Even though the 8 or so euros per month are a reasonable amount of money to pay, if you are serious about the tooling you use, the 100 hours capping are not.

Thats why I prefer to self-host in a cheap VPC.
