Running Continue without Internet

Continue can be run even on an air-gapped computer if you use a local model. You'll have to make a few adjustments for this to work.

  1. Download the latest .vsix file from the Open VSX Registry and install it to VS Code.
  2. In VS Code settings, search "continue" and check the box that says "Manually Running Server". This will stop Continue from trying to kill and redownload the server binary.
  3. Follow instructions to run Continue manually.
  4. Open ~/.continue/config.json and set "allow_anonymous_telemetry": false. This will stop Continue from attempting requests to PostHog.
  5. Also in config.json, set the default model to a local model. You can read about the available options here.
  6. Restart VS Code to ensure that the changes to config.json take effect.
