If your codespace fails to pick up configuration settings from dotfiles, you should work through the following debugging steps.
Enable dotfiles by selecting Automatically install dotfiles in your personal GitHub Codespaces settings.
/workspaces/.codespaces/.persistedshare/dotfilesto see if your dotfiles were cloned.
- If your dotfiles were cloned, try manually re-running your install script to verify that it is executable.
- If your dotfiles were not cloned, check
/workspaces/.codespaces/.persistedshare/EnvironmentLog.txtto see if there was a problem cloning them.
/workspaces/.codespaces/.persistedshare/creation.logfor possible issues. For more information, see Creation logs.
If the configuration from your dotfiles is correctly picked up, but part of the configuration is incompatible with codespaces, use the
$CODESPACES environment variable to add conditional logic for codespace-specific configuration settings.
