Explains how to setup a virtual VS Code IDE on a remote server.

INSTALL

On your remote machine (or where ever you want to run the IDE):

$: curl -fsSL https://code-server.dev/install.sh | sh

RUN

Once installed, the install script will print out further instruction. Typically, running the code-server is:

$: code-server --link

This will use GitHub to authenticate over HTTPS. Running this command will print a authentication URL that will take you to a GitHub auth page and then back to your secure URL to use the IDE.
