I was attempting to setup a self-hosted Codespace over on Visual Studio Codespaces when I found out about the migration to GitHub, and that self-hosted Codespaces aren’t part of the migration plan.
My use cases for this were:
Allowing developers to quickly spawn a development environment on production hardware (on the same VM instance type, in the same datacenter) to debug complex issues that aren’t replicating on local hardware.
Using my desktop to host codespaces for my Surface Pro X, without incurring any additional monthly costs.
I therefore wanted to register my vote to port this feature over to GitHub Codespaces, and to see if there is interest from anyone else.
Note that I haven’t actually managed to try these scenarios yet due to an open issue with the Codespaces CLI, so I’d also welcome feedback on why my use cases wouldn’t be appropriate.
