@seancorfield You said you use your Atom / VSCode with WSL. How do you configure to work? Is your Editor in Windows or in Linux XWindow?

seancorfield20:11:25

VS Code has a Remote-WSL2 extension. I just followed the VS Code docs for that.

seancorfield20:11:13

With Atom, I ended up installing the Linux version on WSL2, and using VcXsrv (Xlaunch) on Windows to render X11 UIs.

seancorfield20:11:47

When I run Reveal, I run that on WSL2 -- because that's where I start my REPL -- and its UI is rendered on Windows via VcXsrv.

fabrao20:11:55

do you use docker in WSL2 too?

seancorfield20:11:21

Originally, I ran Atom on Windows and the REPL on WSL2, relying on the smart mapping in Chlorine to detect the cross-platform file paths.

seancorfield20:11:02

Yes, I run Docker on Windows via the backend WSL2 integration. I use it to run Percona (MySQL), Redis, and ElasticSearch.

fabrao20:11:03

hum, that´s because I´m asking you about it. I wonder to use something like that. But don´t you have problems interconnect containers?

fabrao20:11:31

I had problems using dockers in Windows

seancorfield21:11:07

It all works perfectly as far as I can tell.

seancorfield21:11:32

My entire dev env is on WSL2, just as it was on macOS before. Everything works exactly the same way.
