Installing code-server on Termux Android 5

I understand that alternatives exist such as vim / neovim, but this doesn't fufill what i need so I was wondering if anyone has anywhere I can look or things I can do to get this working. Spent a fair bit of time trauling through Google to no avail

i can't seem to use any of the google solutions to get code-server to run on this legacy termux version and i came here hoping someone knew how haha

pkg i tur-repo && pkg i code-server

install tur-repo first
DukeOfCheese

yeah so that part works, telling me it's all up-to-dated but then code-server can't be foun

i was asking what feature vim lacks that made you try code-server can you do pkg search code
DukeOfCheese

it's not from a lack of feature, it's just i already have my vscode setup in a way that makes my life easier, yk, so when i shifted to termux and code-server was the issue, yk came up with a heap of repos but not code-server 😭

OH WAIT i'm dumb i get you i get you bit of a status update we have android 7 now so imma try default code-server ok so weird question the ip that termux has now being a private one seems inaccessible from other devices on the network e.g. vnc viewer times out

tomikun3mo ago

DukeOfCheese
DukeOfCheese3mo ago
