Here's how to install a browser version of Visual Studio Code.

Installing

bone$ sudo apt update
bone$ sudo apt install bb-code-server

Changing port number

VS Code defaults to listening to port 3000, the same port as cloud9. To change the port

bone$ cd /opt/bb-code-server/

and change the 3000 in start.sh to 3001. Then

bone$ ./start.sh

You can also modify start.sh so that it opens with cloud9 examples. Here's my start.sh

#!/bin/bash
/opt/bb-code-server/app/bin/code-server --auth none --disable-telemetry --disable-update-check --user-data-dir /var/lib/cloud9 --config /var/lib/bb-code-server/config/config.yaml --extensions-dir /var/lib/bb-code-server/extensions/ --bind-addr 0.0.0.0:3001

Updating with apt

If you try doing an apt upgrade to update VS Code from the VSC terminal things will get into an unknown state. Therefore bb-code-server is on hold by default and won't upgrade. Here's how to unhold and update. Login via ssh (not through the VSC terminal) and run:

bone$ sudo systemctl stop bb-code-server.service
bone$ udo apt-mark unhold bb-code-server
Canceled hold on bb-code-server.
bone$ sudo apt update
bone$ sudo apt update

Then set things back.

bone$ sudo apt-mark hold bb-code-server
bb-code-server set on hold.
bone$ sudo systemctl start bb-code-server.service
