[LINUX] Install and develop Git, VSCode, Docker on Chrome OS


On Black Friday this year, Google Pixel Slate will get a $ 350 discount with a genuine keyboard + Pixelbook Pen for free. As a Google believer, I decided to buy it because I couldn't afford to miss this opportunity. The Pixel Slate is a Google Chrome OS tablet that's 12.3 inches, a bit larger for a tablet, but a good size for a 2 in 1 tablet. It weighs about 700 grams, which is heavier than the iPad Pro, but can be said to be easy to carry. As the name implies, this Chrome OS is a very lightweight OS that is supposed to work mainly on the Chrome browser, but you can also use Android and Linux apps. So I wanted to develop it lightly with Chrome OS, so I will summarize the work contents at that time.

--Processor: 8th Generation Core i5

** OS version **

Linux setup

You can install Linux command line tools, code editors, and IDEs on Chrome OS. However, it is off by default and must be enabled in the settings.

After a while to set up, a terminal window will pop up so you can use Linux. At the moment this feature is in beta and may cause problems, but I think it's something you can solve yourself.

Settings for the terminal itself

With the terminal up, press Ctrl + Shift + p to display the setting screen. Screenshot 2019-12-23 at 12.25.37.png

Package update

Run the following command to keep the package up to date.

$ sudo apt update -y
$ sudo apt upgrade -y
$ sudo apt full-upgrade -y

Update Git to the latest version

The version of git installed by default is 2.11.0, so update to the latest version.

There are two methods, one is to download the source and install it, and the other is to clone the repository and install it. The installation location is specified by prefix = / usr / local, but there is no problem if you install it in any location you like (*** if it is in the PATH).

[Common] Install dependent packages

$ sudo apt install -y autoconf gettext libcurl4-gnutls-dev libexpat1-dev libghc-zlib-dev libssl-dev make

1. Update from repository to latest version

If you always want to update to the latest version, you can easily install and update by cloning the repository.

** Install git **

$ git clone https://github.com/git/git.git ~/git
$ cd ~/git
$ make prefix=/usr/local all
$ sudo make prefix=/usr/local install

** git update **

$ cd ~/git
$ git pull origin master
$ make prefix=/usr/local all
$ sudo make prefix=/usr/local install

2. Download and update the source

If you don't want to use the latest version of git, you can use this method to specify the version and download the source. Check the latest version from the git release page. The latest version ** v2.24.1 ** is used here, but other versions are fine.

Run the following command to download the git source.

# v2.24.Replace 1 with the downloaded version
$ wget https://github.com/git/git/archive/v2.24.1.tar.gz
$ tar -zxf v2.24.1.tar.gz
$ cd git-2.24.1

All you have to do is install it using the make command.

$ make prefix=/usr/local all
$ sudo make prefix=/usr/local install

Install Visual Studio Code

Since I usually develop with Neovim and Visual Studio Code (VS Code), I will make it available on Chrome OS. You can start VS Code by running the Debian installer (.deb) downloaded from the Official Site.

Install Docker related tools

Even though Linux on Chrome OS runs on a VM, I want to run it with a minimum of applications, and Docker is indispensable for development, so install Docker and Docker Compose.

Install Docker

If you install it according to the Official page, it will not fail.

#Uninstall if you have previously installed Docker
$ sudo apt remove --purge docker docker-engine docker.io containerd runc

$ sudo apt update -y
#Install dependent packages
$ sudo apt install -y \
    apt-transport-https \
    ca-certificates \
    curl \
    gnupg2 \

#Added Docker GPG key
$ curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/debian/gpg | sudo apt-key add -
$ sudo apt-key fingerprint 0EBFCD88

#Stable version of Docker(stable)Add repository for
$ sudo add-apt-repository \
   "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/debian \
   $(lsb_release -cs) \

#Install Docker
$ sudo apt update -y
$ sudo apt install -y docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io

#Confirm that it was installed
$ sudo docker run --rm hello-world

Run Docker without sudo

If this is left as it is, it is necessary to sudo every time Docker is executed, so add a docker group to the current user so that it can be executed with the privileges of a general user.

#In the current group of users`docker`Add
$ sudo usermod -aG docker `whoami`
#Restart Chrome OS
$ docker run --rm hello-world

Install Docker Compose

This is also installed according to the procedure on the Official Site.

#Download the latest version of Docker Compose
$ sudo curl -L "https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.25.0/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
#Change permissions to run
$ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
#Confirm that Docker Compose has been installed
$ docker-compose --version

in conclusion

I touched Chrome OS for the first time, but it is very interesting that I can use the Android application and operate it intuitively with the Pixelbook Pen. Linux is also a beta version, but it is not bad to use, and I felt that it could be used as a development environment without any problems. However, since the storage is only 128GB, it will be necessary to use external storage or cloud services.
