A couple of ways you can follow me around on the internet.

Did anyone try something like that with PHPStorm before? I’m tempted…


Philipp Strube

I work similar to that. I have a 12core/64GB back-end and a 4core/32GB front-end. The front-end runs 4 browsers (Firefox, Chrome, VS Code, Slack) and VS Code runs all its workspaces as remotes via SSH on the back-end. Each client has an individual ecryptfs home on the back-end.

yes, VSCode might be able to do that. I’m specifically wondering about all the fancy IDE functions. (Auto-complete, code validation, etc.)

Yeah in VS Code’s case, the plugins are installed locally and on each remote. It will show update notifications for localhost and each remote individually, which is a bit annoying, but not enough yet to figure out if there is a way to avoid this.

I use remote development with VS Code a lot but even with paid plugins (Inteliphense has some premium features) it is still not in the same league as PhpStorm when it comes to bigger projects with lots of dependencies. For smaller projects this setup is amazing though.
