Deno in Gitpod
It’s easy to set up Deno in Gitpod.
Setting up the Dockerfile
Add a Dockerfile to your project as .gitpod.Dockerfile:
FROM gitpod/workspace-full RUN curl -fsSL https://deno.land/x/install/install.sh | sh RUN /home/gitpod/.deno/bin/deno completions bash > /home/gitpod/.bashrc.d/90-deno && \ echo 'export DENO_INSTALL="/home/gitpod/.deno"' >> /home/gitpod/.bashrc.d/90-deno && \ echo 'export PATH="$DENO_INSTALL/bin:$PATH"' >> /home/gitpod/.bashrc.d/90-deno
And configure this Dockerfile in your .gitpod.yml:
image: file: .gitpod.Dockerfile
It’ll run the latest Deno version and install the Bash completions.
Here are a few Deno example projects that are already automated with Gitpod:
|fake-log-generator||Generator for fake log files as CLI application|
Here is a useful extensions that you’ll likely want to install in your Deno project.
To add this extension to your repository, simply open Gitpod’s Extensions panel (see left vertical menu in the IDE), then search for “Deno” and install it “for this project”.
Next, simply commit the .gitpod.yml configuration file that was automatically created (or updated) by Gitpod.
