VSCode with Sessions

Visual studio code is a source-code editor made by Microsoft for Windows, Linux and macOS. Features include support for debugging, syntax highlighting etc.

Step 1: Create and add the SSH Key

Create an ssh key from the computer you'd like to connect from (skip this step if you already have a key)

# make the ssh key (if you don't have one)
ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -C "[email protected]"
# add the keys to grid
grid ssh-keys add lit_key ~/.ssh/id_ed25519.pub

Step 2: launch the session

grid session create --name fun-bear-259

Step 3: login to the interactive session

grid session ssh fun-bear-259

Step 4: Install remote ssh extension

Step 5: Click the remote tab and find your session

Step 6: Ready

Clicking on it will open VSCode in the remote IxNode. You can use VSCode with any of its features.

You can clone any Github repositories into a Session using the HTTPS cloning method (SSH will not work).
