Coding on a Chromebook – headmelted


"Crouton is quite a creative way to utilize the developer shell on Chromebooks to provide a Debian chroot that can launch Linux apps on Chrome OS effectively side-by-side. It does this by broadcasting a framebuffer into a new window or tab, so that the user is interacting with the X11 application as if it were a Chrome window.

NOTE: Crouton is also what my Visual Studio Code for Chromebook builds and scripts are using under-the-covers to create the side-by-side scenario you see there, as I believe it currently offers the best trade-off for flexibility, compatibility and performance."
