Head over to select gitpod from the dropdown and follow the steps.

Interesting things to keep in mind:

  • Make sure your browser is not blocking windows/tabs from opening from the gitpod workspace URL (maybe add * to your browser's whitelist)
    • The GitPod tasks will run automatically and further instructions will be printed out right in the terminal
    • VNC tab will open automatically if not just click in the left icon Remote explorer and click 6080. You will see a tab completly black, that's normal.
    • As mentioned in those instructions if you are not using the VS Code desktop and if you are only relying on your browser please:
      • Do not try to click the URL from the make run out put instead copy that URL and execute firefox [paste URL here]
      • Head over to the tab where the VNC is opened (black page), you will see Firefox opening there, maximize and have fun.
      • You can also run cypress tests via GitPod but you will need to use Firefox, for that just prepend CYPRESS_BROWSER="firefox" to the desired command. Example: CYPRESS_BROWSER="firefox" make check for every test or CYPRESS_BROWSER="firefox" make check-desktop spec=impress/scrolling_spec.js for one specific test on desktop
