Setup for all of the listed projects is completely automated with the help of Gitpod. So within seconds, you get a fully working development environment, including a VS Code-like interface and a cloud-based Linux container configured specifically for the project. All you need is a browser!
For getting started with the project of your choice just hit the blue

This will launch a ready-to-code environment with everything setup (like the dependencies pre-installed and the web server running) as shown below.
Now you can make your contribution and once you’re done you can do all sorts of cool stuff from within the full-featured Gitpod IDE like reviewing the changes that you made in the diff editor or making a Pull Request.
