Using CodeSee in Gitpod

@Sky020, will CodeSee work if I’m using Gitpod to view the fcc code? Thanks!

@joanmdavis Yes, CodeSee works in GitPod.

Note: CodeSee is not related to the editor, but is a script added to the client code in the browser.

Thanks, @Sky020. I have a followup question since I don’t really know what I’m doing. :slight_smile:

These are the steps I’ve taken so far:

  1. In GitHub, forked the freeCodeCamp repository.
  2. Followed the CodeSee installation instructions to link CodeSee with the fcc repository in my GitHub account.

Installation was successful and CodeSee created a map of the repository.

I think the next step is to set up my freeCodeCamp repository in Gitpod, using Is that correct? Or am I misunderstanding the repository-CodeSee connection?

@joanmdavis I have just moved this into its own thread :slightly_smiling_face:

This is all you should need to do:

  1. Create a CodeSee account
  2. Open your fork of freeCodeCamp in Gitpod (if you want to use Gitpod)
  3. Change the .env file environment variable CODESEE=true
  4. End the automatically started terminals, except for the mongodb one
  5. Reinstall the dependencies: npm ci
  6. Develop the client and server again
