Last week, I was working on a C++ application on a remote machine in the cloud, and I didn't want to install all the compiling and debugging tools/libraries/dependencies on the host OS, but I wanted to have all of them in a container. I found that VSCode has the capability to target a container for application building and/or debugging :).
This article is a documentation for me that I will use every time that I need to compile a C++ application. The steps are divided in three main groups:
- You need to build a Docker image with the tools/dependencies/libraries etc.. A container will be started...
