Remote Development

Lapce has remote development feature, which you can connect Lapce to a remote machine via SSH. After connecting to the remote machine, all the plugins, and commands will be run from the remote machine. You would have exactly the same experience as if you are woking on a local workspace, without feeling any differences.
To use it, click the blue remote icon on the top left
It will pop up the input box for you to put in the SSH connection details. You can use the hostname you configured in your ~/.ssh/config
After it's connected, it will show a green connected status on the remote development icon. Then you can start to Open folder as if you are opening a local folder.
Remote development only works with key based SSH authentication at the moment. So it doesn't connect if you normally put a password for connecting to the SSH host.
