Vscode/Workbench on an Arm system?

To work on my project on the road (limited to an iPad), I am trying to use Vscode/Workbench on a Raspberry Pi5.This for a P2 device, nothing to do with the Pi other than hosting the development environment, using the iPad for monitor/keyboard. I am getting an error on compile saying cannot execute binary file: Exec Format error. Is this due to error between earpods or the Arm? I am running Linux Debian 12 on the Pi.

You cannot do a local compile on a Raspberry Pi. You can, however, use the cloud compile and cloud flash features.

Thanks, will do. Was hoping to use when off line.
