  • Upvote this GitHub issue. VSCode Marketplace should be open source, or at least documented. That will only mean good things to us (developers).
    Eclipse theia is that alternative, almost same as vscode but even better (more extensible, portable, etc), and even the fsf regards the eclipse license as free software, and in any case, if you're not happy with the eclipse license you can have it under the GPL anyway, it's dual license Source: over 1 year ago

    Theia (, it's vscode in the cloud / your container. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Just Release SvelteStorm 4.0!
    I wonder why not a VS Code plugin? Or starting with a better base platform for this like Theia. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • How to keep my bot running when my computer is off?
    You can install code-server or theta IDE to use a lightweight and quite well made version of VS Code right from your browser for development on any device.

  • The Future of the Gitlab Web IDE
    Yeah, especially when they could use something like Theia[0], which I believe was built for this kind of purpose? They both still use Monaco under the hood AFAICT.

  • Is it possible to host a discord bot 24/7 on GitHub Codespaces?
    Github Codespaces is intended for development in the cloud, not hosting. If you're looking for a low cost or free hosting option, you should get a VPS to host your bots and other apps on. A VPS would run 24/7 on a server in the cloud, even if you close your connection to the VPS. You can also develop on the same VPS using a web IDE such as VSCode Web or Theta IDE.

  • Fleet, a Lightweight IDE from JetBrains
    That's a very fair point to make, but as a consumer, that's probably a good thing - having a healthy competition in the industry, it seems that even the likes of Eclipse are attempting to branch out somewhat: The next decade in tooling will hopefully be promising! - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • CS50 vscode - how to install the back end?
    I don't know, but you could use something like to run inside the container. There are a lot of tutorials and guides, but it's getting complicated, especially since all you need is just the dependencies. Source: over 2 years ago
    It seems to be like Theia which is based on vscode and runs in the browser. It's used by this project to give a full lab/workspace and ide in the cloud: (it's actually closer to vscode even though eclipse is in the name). - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
