  • openvscode-server

    Run upstream VS Code on a remote machine with access through a modern web browser from any device, anywhere.

  • I wish they had a cloud offering, it's something I'll look into setting up one of these days as I've been getting more and more motivated to move some of my lesser used/stable projects to the cloud so I don't have them on my main machine and can access them quickly if I'm away or a client needs some change. I've heard good things about https://www.gitpod.io/. Also funnily enough I have a m1 mac and I use lando on it without any issues whatsoever, other than starting docker I don't interact with it at all.

  • rootfs_builder

    Extract rootfs from a Docker image

  • FWIW it's not too difficult to convert a docker image to a VM rootfs. See rootfs_builder[0] for example.

    I'm currently working on a wrapper for QEMU that has docker-like semantics for pull/run/start/stop/exec/etc, but it will pull docker images from docker registries and convert them to qcow2 for you and run them in QEMU. It works on Linux and Windows and should work on MacOS and BSD eventually.

  • multipass

    Multipass orchestrates virtual Ubuntu instances

  • Maybe canonical's multipass is a good option. It creates Ubuntu VMs very quickly using hyperkit, has as they were containers with docker. It has some limitations but works pretty well overall.
