A VSCode Example for Fly

VS Code Remote is the latest example in fly-examples. The example creates a SSH accessible, Ubuntu running app instance, ready for you to connect in with Visual Studio Code’s Remote SSH features so you can develop on a remote Fly system where ever you are.

What’s more, the example also shows how to import your own templates for applications, how to use Dockerfile build-args in Fly and other neat ways to work with Fly.

You’ll find the example at fly-examples/vscode-remote


This one is super handy with flyctl suspend and flyctl resume, especially since disks stick around!


to clarify, does this use the new experimental feature of permanent storage?

Yep! The persistent disk is handy for caching builds, Docker images, etc.
