Codespaces uses VS Code, which is a great editor but not as open source as many believe... Its foundation is open source, but none of the extensions in the Marketplace can be installed in another editor based on the open source code used for VS Code.

For true open source, I use Theia (theia-ide.org) hosted in the cloud.
