There was a lot of excited clamour yesterday on Twitter (mainly prompted by a Nat Friedman tweet) about the ability to browse to a repo in the GitHub web UI, press ‘.’, and the repo would open up in an instance of VSCode running in the browser. Unfortunately when I tried it, it didn’t work. This is what got displayed:
and the error I received in VSCode’s notifications pane was:
Unable to open ‘dataplatform’: Unable to resolve resource vscode-vfs://github/myorg/dataplatform
Note that this is not an open-source repo, it is not publicly available (we keep it private by virtue of being GitHub Enterprise customers).
Does anyone know why this might be the case? I’m assuming its because its not an open-source repo but wanted to check.
