Gitpod installed extention update new version

how can I update extention upgrade new version if new version available

I guess you mean a VSCode extension? If this extension is in Open VSX you can just search in the extensions view (on the left) for the extension and hit Update like this:

If it’s not in Open VSX, you can drag and drop a new version in the extensions view.

Remark: There are currently 2 bugs:

  • The Update buttons is only visible when you search for the extension.
  • After update you probably get something like this in your .gitpod.yaml:
image:
  file: .gitpod.Dockerfile
tasks:
  - command: sbt ~run
vscode:
  extensions:
    - scalameta.metals@1.7.8:oixMSF1r3cXQPfOQ34+sTA==
    - scala-lang.scala@0.4.1:o7gEBqmwcQFD8H6w8TvPqQ==ports:
  - port: 8212
    onOpen: ignore

There is a newline missing. Change the .gitpod.yaml by hand to add the newline again fixes this:

image:
  file: .gitpod.Dockerfile
tasks:
  - command: sbt ~run
vscode:
  extensions:
    - scalameta.metals@1.7.8:oixMSF1r3cXQPfOQ34+sTA==
    - scala-lang.scala@0.4.1:o7gEBqmwcQFD8H6w8TvPqQ==
ports:
  - port: 8212
    onOpen: ignore

how can I install open VSX

You don’t need to install Open VSX in Gitpod. Just click on the extensions icon on the left …
