  • The is no escape from Microsoft
    https://github.com/cdr/code-server was around long before Microsoft started playing with an online vscode.

  • Is there a decent way to develop android apps using dex?
    Proot using andronix/termux/other ways is generally a bad idea and gives very poor performance, beside android sdks don't exist for arm yet, afaik. Even if they do, theres no guarantee you can have it on android for obvious reasons. But if your "getting into development" is learning a new language, you can root your device and get linux deploy(chroot) running and have a more native-like experience (linux). Then you can get vscode (code-server) running. Some extensions will not show up on the extension marketplace because they either 1. Doesn't support code-server 2. Doesn't officially support code-server 3. /And doesn't support arm.
  • Does anyone use Intellij's "code with me" feature for interviews? Is it fair to ask the candidate to download the plugin for it?
    What about running an online editor like code server? It's been a while since I used it but I think it let's you just give them a link to the environment. That should be enough for a basic interview. I can say that it will feel closer to an IDE and that alone might help the interviewee with feeling more comfortable.
  • Pocket dev station
    You can run code-server on the phone itself after using Termux and proot-distro to install your favorite distribution. Then you just open your browser to localhost:8080 and you're up and running.
  • Friendly PSA: Open a Github Repo on VSCode all in the browser
  • ZF3: Whats a computer? (from an ex-iPhone user)
    Thanks for the info! When they took away Linux on Dex a couple years ago, the alternatives were all pretty hacky - looks like they've come a long way since then. This led me down the rabbit hole to Termux and proot-distro, which should do the trick. Combined with code-server I think I can accomplish pretty much everything I need.

    Another tool I love on a similar vein is running code-server https://github.com/cdr/code-server on my server. Gives me a full IDE on my iPad.

    I wonder why coder.com[0] is not mentioned, the ide is also open-source[1].

    As for cloud9 they closed their source and license when they moved to v3, but there is still a v2 descendant called Pylon IDE[3].

    I'm using code-server running in home server and use vpn to attach to it. It seems fine if you don't code for GUI.

    Hmm. $0.18 per hour for 4GB of RAM is a rather steep. A c6g.large on AWS would run you less than a half of that, for the same number of CPUs and memory. A quarter if you're happy to use spot instances. Might be neat to have an OSS tool that spins up an EC2 (or Azure or GCP) instance running Code-Server[1] (VS Code running natively on the server, but presenting the UI in the browser), given a git repo and credentials.

    Admittedly, the storage costs would be higher.

    If you don't want to tie in with GitHub, there is also a vscode browser version called "code server"

    https://github.com/cdr/code-server

    I've been using it for the last couple of weeks on a development VPS and really love it. I'm considering moving my dev environment over to the server and just open a browser to do all the work.
