Using gitpod for your Scala projects


Recently, I’ve had to use a remote developer environment. I’ve landed on gitpod. The ease of use and setup makes it really easy to get started. It works for Github and Bitbucket, I needed that.

But when you hop into a OSS project, chances are that gitpod is not configured (no .gitpod.yml file.). This is unfortunate and it means that sometime you won’t have your usual tools.

This oneliner is useful for me to setup everything you need quickly using coursier.

curl -fL | gzip -d > cs;  chmod +x cs; sudo mv cs /usr/bin/cs; cs setup
