Dev containers support

There was talk about dev containers support coming soon in the discord channel before. Any news on this? It’s the one thing blocking me from using cursor at the moment.


No news yet.

I just learnt about dev containers today and i was disappointed that i got errors trying to use this feature in cursor when it worked in vs code. I am enjoying cursor a lot so i hope to see this soon! Going to have to hold up on cursor use till then.

I really can’t use this project until it has devcontainer support, and i’m so disappointed, as it sounds amazing. Unfortunately my entire workflow is based on devcontainers.

I would love to see devcontainer support as well. Critical for everything we do.

Forgot to respond to this thread. Dev containers should be supported as of over a month ago! Let us know if you run into any issues.

Using Cursor on ARM Mac and getting this for 0.31.3 (latest atm).

I am still unable to use DevContainers.

When I click the dev container option in this popup

I just see the “Installation Extension” loader hang infinitely.

The window output from my terminal includes this error message.
