Part 2. Installing remote extensions

In this part, you’re going to connect to a remote server, mcnulty, using Visual Studio Code and install the ShellCheck, rust-analyzer, and CodeLLDB extensions.

Your task

Start by reading the Remote coding page.

Follow the instructions on the Remote coding page for Visual Studio Code to connect to mcnulty.

At this point, follow the steps in Part 1 to install the three extensions. This time, rather than an install button, you should see an Install in SSH button.

In the future, you’ll be able to connect to mcnulty from an installation of Visual Studio Code on your own machines, even if you’re not in the lab. All of the files on your lab machine should also be available on mcnulty.
