Codespaces while using vim in terminal

I love codespaces so far. However I am a dedicated vim user. I have been happily using codespaces + vim through the VSCode terminal without any real issues with one exception.

It doesn’t seem that the terminal interaction is counted as interaction in spaces, and eventually I am suspended (most times without notice). Is there some way we can support this methodology? VSCode Vim just doesn’t quite cut it for me.

Hey there! This seems like a bug! Typing/clicking anywhere within the codespace should count as activity. I’m letting our engineering team know so that they can investigate!

Thanks for letting us know.


It would be awesome to be able to natively use vim/neovim on Codespaces :pray:
