Install Code Server on Artix

Install Code Server on Artix

Same as installing code-server on Arch, except you need an OpenRC script.

Install using yay

yay is a convenient AUR helper.

yay -S code-server

Install using makepkg

git clone
cd code-server
makepkg -si

Download and configure OpenRC script

The script is pretty generic and should work on most OpenRC-based distributions with minimal tweaks. You just need to download it, make it executable and put your username in line 3.

cd /etc/init.d/
sudo wget -c 
sudo chmod +x code-server

code-server reads configuration from ~/.config/code-server/config.yaml. It is better than sending arguments directly to code-server using the script.


Start on boot with default runlevel

sudo rc-update add code-server default

Start the service immediately

sudo rc-service code-server start
