Building Visual Studio Code on Jetson Nano

Here are the steps for building Visual Studio Code on Nvidia Jetson Nano.

Install nodejs

Visual Studio Code needs node version between 8 to 10. To install node 10 and yarn:

curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_10.x | sudo -E bash -

sudo apt-get install -y nodejs

curl -sL https://dl.yarnpkg.com/debian/pubkey.gpg | sudo apt-key add -

echo "deb https://dl.yarnpkg.com/debian/ stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yarn.list

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install yarn


Install libraries 

We also need some libraries:

sudo apt-get install libx11-dev libxkbfile-dev libsecret-1-dev 


Clone and build Visual Studio Code

In a working directory, clone the source code and build.

git clone https://github.com/microsoft/vscode

cd vscode

scripts/npm.sh install

To run Visual Studio Code:

scripts/code.sh
