Prototype Kit requirements (Linux)
You'll usually need admin access to your machine to install the software.
If you do not have admin access, ask your IT team to install the software for you.
GDS staff can install the software themselves with the Self Service app.
Linux comes with a terminal application.
You'll need to use the terminal to create, start and stop prototypes. Using a terminal is sometimes called ‘using the command line’.
You'll need a code editor to make changes to your prototype. VS Code is a well established and fairly accessible code editor.
