Gitpod Cloud IDE is now allowing sudo in runtime
Gitpod is now allowing sudo in runtime. After waiting for quite some time, now they give it. What does it mean to users? We don’t need to create a new workspace to add one or two small packages we need. It saves our hours. How to activate this feature? Please keep in mind this feature is still in beta. Here’s hoping they’ll launch it as a standard feature soon. Unfortunately, they don’t give any estimate on how long we have to wait for its release.

It’s an ideal approach. Unfortunately, the web development project is not that ideal. One of my client’s project is still requiring Ruby 2.3.6 for various reasons I can’t describe here. So, how to install Ruby 2.3.6 on Gitpod IDE?

Got nice surprises from Gitpod team
Gitpod is the only cloud IDE that integrates seamlessly with Github. At least that’s what I know when I am writing this. Here’s how I got nice surprices from Gitpod team. How I found Gitpod I found it almost a year ago. At that time, Amazon acquired Cloud9.io, the cloud IDE I used to work. I used its free plan since it’s already provided me with one private workspace. However, I predicted that some days, they’re going to change it.
