VSCode in browser

Some folks created a docker container that contains a VS Code instance and you can access it [VS Code] in your browser. That looks interesting. If you missed it, here's the link to the Github repo:

Isn't this "Inception" ? An editor which runs on top of a browser accessed by a browser so that you can write code that runs in a browser.

We need to go deeper. Let the container run in a browser, too!

I'm sure you could do that. There are some projects that emulate an OS (with WASM I guess), so technically you could install a Linux distro and docker inside it.

With how hype VS Code is today, this might really take off.

Edit: It didn't sync with my clipboard for a long time, even after giving it the permission and then reloading the page in a new tab. It works fine now.
Too bad they don't remove the title bar when you do "window.menuBarVisibility": "toggle", takes up too much space.

I'm fairly sure Microsoft is gradually implementing VSC in browser so you can work directly on the source in Azure hosted apps.
