Are you still stuck using a VM and NFS to edit your website code?
Did you know you can run a fairly simple process inside a running VM that will convert it to an LXD container?
It took a bit of figuring out, but the reduced memory usage, increased speed and easier directory sharing make it will worth the effort.
This assumes an existing VM which you can already log into. The approximate steps required are:
1. Install lxd - I initially installed with apt, but its an older version, so probably better to install the snap instead.
