Chomeos Crouton Chrx
Chromebooks / ChromeOS is the bomb! My daily driver and what I do all my development on currently!
Here is a couple of tips/tricks to get you going:
Screw something up? Need a fresh start?
From login screen: Ctrl + Shift + R
note: may have to do this twice because of reasons....
From login screen: esc + [refesh(F3 on my model)] + Power
When machine reboots, press space to toggle development mode!
If you like chromeOS but want to do "Dev-y" things but don't want to deal with drivers:
To get to shell:
Ctrl + Alt + T crosh: shell
crouton will create some start scripts for you:
chronos@localhost / $ start startcode starti3 startxfce4 startcli startgnome startidea startxiwi
They are found here:
chronos@localhost / $ which startcode /usr/local/bin/startcode
I made the startcode and it looks like:
chronos@localhost / $ cat $(which startcode) sudo startxiwi -T code
chronos@localhost / $ startcode
This forwards your xsession using crouton integration extension to display your GUI IDE in a tab. Toggle fullscreen to hide the url or launch in window mode:
chronos@localhost / $ cat $(which startcode) sudo startxiwi code
Personally I love the tabbed workflow of having three tabs: docs/jira ticket, ide, localhost.
Want more of a linux feel while still being able to use ChromeOS without a reboot:
