Setup for an Acer Chromebook

I'm a newbie to Phaser, hoping to learn enough to use it for a 'summer camp' for high-school programmers.

 

We plan on using the Acer Chromebook.  It is a low-cost little powerhouse, but not the most intuitive box to set up.

 

I will be scouring this forum as I learn, so wanted to 'pay ahead'.   Attached is a step-by-step guide to setting up Phaser on the Acer Chromebook.

Thanks.   After playing with the Chromebook, I've backed off Linux.  I'm just using the native Chromebook and Chrome Dev Tools.  https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chrome-dev-editor-develop/pnoffddplpippgcfjdhbmhkofpnaalpg Runs Phaser like a charm.   I know these kids free can have free C9 accounts but not sure they will all have access to internet (this is in a Community Housing project).    Currently there is no internet in the community project room, I am using my phone as a hotspot.

 

DevTools provides a chopped down version of ACE editor, provides syntax marking but not auto-completions.  It's like programming 30 years ago in BASIC (which may not be a bad thing for getting these kids started).  DevTools is functional and has full integration with GitHub, I've written my first 'game' without problem.
