IDE Integration

HPE Machine Learning Development Environment shells can be used in the popular IDEs similarly to a common remote SSH host.

Visual Studio Code

  1. Make sure Visual Studio Code Remote - SSH extension is installed.

  2. Start a new shell and get its SSH command by running:

    det shell start --show-ssh-command
    

    You can also get the SSH command for an existing shell using:

    det shell show_ssh_command <SHELL UUID>
    
  3. Copy the SSH command, then select Remote-SSH: Add new SSH Host... from the Command Palette in VS Code, and paste the copied SSH command when prompted. Finally, you’ll be asked to pick a config file to use. The default option should work for most users.

  4. The remote host will now be available in the VS Code Remote Explorer. For further detail, please refer to the official documentation.

PyCharm

  1. PyCharm Professional is required for remote Python interpreters via SSH.

  2. Start a new shell and get its SSH command by running:

    det shell start --show-ssh-command
    

    You can also get the SSH command for an existing shell using:

    det shell show_ssh_command <SHELL UUID>
    
  3. As of this writing, PyCharm doesn’t support providing custom options in the SSH commands via the UI, so you’ll need to supply them via an entry in your ssh_config file, commonly located at ~/.ssh/config on Linux and macOS systems. HPE Machine Learning Development Environment SSH command line will have the following pattern:

    ssh -o "ProxyCommand=<YOUR PROXY COMMAND>" -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -tt -o IdentitiesOnly=yes -i <YOUR KEY PATH> -p <YOUR PORT NUMBER> <YOUR USERNAME>@<YOUR SHELL HOSTNAME>
    

    You’ll need to add the following to your SSH config:

    Host <YOUR SHELL HOSTNAME>
    HostName <YOUR SHELL HOSTNAME>
    ProxyCommand <YOUR PROXY COMMAND>
    StrictHostKeyChecking no
    IdentitiesOnly yes
    IdentityFile <YOUR KEY PATH>
    Port <YOUR PORT NUMBER>
    User <YOUR USERNAME>
    
  4. In PyCharm, open Settings/Preferences > Tools > SSH Configurations. Click the plus icon to add a new configuration. Enter YOUR HOST NAME, YOUR PORT NUMBER, and YOUR USERNAME in the corresponding fields. Then switch Authentication type dropdown to OpenSSH config and authentication agent. Save the new configuration by clicking “OK”.

  5. Use the new SSH configuration to setup a remote interpreter by following the official documentation.
