Docker - Visual Studio Code Server Setup
Here I describe my setup of the Visual Studio Code Server container.
I run this Docker container on a Ubuntu VM that runs via [[ Proxmox VE ]]. I perform the following on the CLI.
Since I use vs code server to edit yaml files of Home Assistant I have created a volume mapping to the configuration folder of Home Assistant
Docker pull command:
docker pull linuxserver/codeserver
Within my home folder I have created a Docker folder where I create a subfolder for each container:
cd ~ mkdir -p docker/codeserver cd docker/codeserver
Also create a folder where the config files can be stored:
I use the Nano text editor to create a shell script:
sudo nano codeserver_run.sh
With this shell script we are going to create the container.
Copy the following into
IDu=$(id -u $(logname)) # Saves the logged in user id in the IDu variable IDg=$(id -g $(logname)) # Saves the logged in user group in the IDg variable docker run -d \ --name=codeserver \ --hostname=codeserver \ -p 8833:8443 \ -v $PWD/config:/config \ -v /home/USER/docker/homeassistant/config:/homeassistant \ -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro \ -e TZ=Europe/Amsterdam \ -e PUID=$IDu \ -e PGID=$IDg \ --restart unless-stopped \ linuxserver/code-server
If necessary, adjust the following:
Choose a port that is still available, I chose
8833. Check this with netstat
Choose the location for the code server config files. In this example it is the config map we created
(OPTIONAL) Create a mapping to a location with files you want to edit with code server. In this example it is the configuration folder of Home Assistant
It is also possible to set a password with the environment variable PASSWORD or HASHED_PASSWORD. See the description of the image
Exit Nano (CTRL-X) and save the changes.
Now create the container:
sudo sh codeserver_run.sh
Check if the container is running properly.
See also my notes about updating containers with Portainer or via the CLI. With Synology’s Docker Application, updating a container is also very easy.
Using Visual Studio Code Server
Visual Studio Code Server can now be accessed via the following URL:
http://<IP DOCKER HOST>:8833/
To use the mapping to the Home Assistant configuration map:
Open Folder..., empty the command palette and type
/homeassistantand press Enter. Now it is possible to edit the yaml files of Home Assistant.
