in the first place i couldn’t understand the statement above. Coz i have little knowledge in source control and theia editor. I thought i can just sign in GCP > turn on the editor and just code right away.
When you say re-produce does it mean i have to linux machine and install theia IDE in my localhost?
Perhaps a little bit of background information would be useful.
Theia is a framework to build cloud and desktop IDE-like application which GCP among other products are based on. I’m not familiar with GCP as I’ve never used before but I’d like to identify if the issue is with the framework or the product itself. The product for example can extends the framework and customize it to suit their needs as well as provide their own extensions to implement additional features. The way the product is deployed can also influence it’s performance (for instance if runs on a shared server, or runs out of file handles).
When I referenced if the bug can be reproduced on
master this is to identify if the issue is in the framework itself. This can be achieved by building the example applications present in the Theia framework repository and trying to test a similar use-case.
Without confirming if the bug occurs on
master (the framework itself), it’s difficult for the community to help as we do not know GCP, how it is customized, it’s internals or how it is deployed.
It is similar to the previously posted question on GCP: Google Cloud Shell's Theia IDE upgrade.
