Web based Visual Studio code
Good morning!(this was writer at 6pm but shush) Okay so a lot of the coding community LOVE visual studio code as it is just a 50mb code writing software which while still basic is full of power. Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could take it on the go and edit stuff on your server?!
This is where the open source coder software comes in! This project is based in Austin, TX and can current as of the 15th of April 2019 run on linux and OSX systems with planned support for Windows soon.
I use a windows PC/Server, how do I use this?
Welp.. you don't... Okay that was a lie.
In order to get this to work there are a couple ways to approach this.
Windows has the ability to run linux in the background of windows itself.
In order to install linux under windows you need to open a powershell window and paste this line of code:
Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux
Sudo apt update
Sudo apt install docker.io tmux
wget [url from github]
cd /code-server[press tab to auto complete here]
sudo ./code-server -p 8443 -P [password to login]
