Now, I am aware this will come somewhere down the bottom of random feature requests, but, hear me out
I was playing around with IntelliJ Projector last night and it works pretty well, I’ve got a pattern that I could mostly reuse across a wide range of projects. The biggest issue/annoyance is having to reconfigure IntelliJ every time.
So this time, I added the .jetbrains folder to Git as a LFS folder so that it wasn’t just committing absolutely gob fulls of data to the git repo itself. This works pretty well, the start up times are pretty quick and I’m happy with it, but I get the feeling over time that solution would probably become suboptimal.
So then I messed with NFS but found that docker/kubernetes unprivileged containers etc and failing to mount the NFS mount.
Now of course if this was self hosted I could just mount the NFS drive to the pods or whatever myself, but it does defeat my plans of paying you guys money to do it for me. So I wonder if it would be possible to add “NFS Mounts” to the Gitpod yaml, and then have them added to the podspec when the container tries to come up so that Gitpod users have the ability to persist arbitrary data outside of Git.
Or have I missed something obvious?
