The default environment in CoCalc actually does come with GRASS GIS 7.4,
just without GUI. It works fine in the command line and notebooks. You can
use it also from QGIS which is there with GUI, but the experience, at least
with the trial, is not good.

This may not be ideal for the "Try GRASS GIS", unless there are some
additions streamlining the start, but it is hopeful for actually using

Note that you can run CoCalc on your own, but I have not tried that yet
(needs 15 GB just to get started). At least significant part of it is open
source (it is not clear to me if 100%).
