Article proposal: DevPod

Microsoft’s own .devcontainer support for Visual Studio Code is really neat stuff but doesn’t work well on Fedora because of some deep and troubling dependencies on Docker and proprietary code.

The concept is great, though! So, I set out to write an implementation that works out of the box on Fedora Silverblue and in only a couple minutes on Fedora Workstation. The DevPod project is free, open-source software built on top of Podman and (to a much lesser extent) GNOME Builder.

I’m also working to get deeper support directly into Builder.

That sounds awesome. +1 from me.

+1. And please don’t skimp on the directions for getting it to work on Fedora Workstation. :slightly_smiling_face:
