1. Using DevContainers in Visual Studio Code

Please ensure that you have Visual Studio Code and Docker installed before proceeding.

1.1. Getting Started

To start using DevContainers in Visual Studio Code, follow these steps:

  1. Open your project in Visual Studio Code.

  2. A devcontainer.json file in the root of your project in .devcontainer directory

  3. A configuration similar to the following one is available:

    	"name": "Feel++ Dev Jammy",
    	"image": "ghcr.io/feelpp/feelpp-dev:jammy",
    	"extensions": [
  4. Customize the configuration based on your project requirements. In the example above, the configuration sets the name of the Dev Container as "Feel++ Dev Jammy" and specifies the Docker image to use as "ghcr.io/feelpp/feelpp-dev:jammy". Additionally, it includes a list of extensions to install inside the Dev Container.

1.2. Opening in DevContainer

To open your project using the DevContainer, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Command Palette in Visual Studio Code by pressing Ctrl+Shift+P (or Cmd+Shift+P on macOS).

  2. Search for and select "Remote-Containers: Reopen in Container".

  3. Visual Studio Code will build the Docker image specified in the devcontainer.json file and open a new window inside the Dev Container.

  4. Once the Dev Container is loaded, you can start working on your project within the containerized environment.

1.3. Benefits of Using DevContainers

Using DevContainers in Visual Studio Code offers several benefits:

  • Consistent Development Environment: DevContainers provide a consistent and reproducible development environment across different machines, ensuring that everyone works in the same environment.

  • Isolation and Dependency Management: DevContainers isolate your project dependencies from your local machine, reducing conflicts and simplifying dependency management.

  • Easy Extension Installation: DevContainers automatically install the specified extensions, making it easy to set up the required tools and configurations for your project.

Make sure your Docker daemon is running and accessible from the terminal to use DevContainers in Visual Studio Code.
