Asynchronous responses to on-demand requests.
This is an extension for Atom that serves as interface to a system that enables more effective task hand-off between end-user developers and remote helpers by allowing asynchronous responses to on-demand requests. With this plugin, developers can request help by speaking their requests aloud within the context of the Atom IDE.
To start using Codeon you will first need to take care of some prerequisites to install the plugin. Below there is a guide that will take you through the requirements for Codeon the installation process.
The Codeon plugin requires that you run the latest version of Atom. You can download it from the following link:
Note: If you already have a version of Atom in your system that you wish to keep rename the application launcher to something else so you don’t overwrite the existing app.
Open the Settings view
Packages > Settings View > Open
In the Core Settings disable the Automatically Update option.
Note: If you have more than one version of Atom, they will be sharing the same settings files, so be careful not to enable this setting accidentally while using the latest version.
The Codeon plugin uses
npm to manage its
dependencies, so you will need to install NodeJS to have access to its
Get the latest version of NodeJS for your platform in the following link:
Open node-vX.Y.Z.pkg to start the installer.
Follow the installer instructions to finish the install
Verify the installation by opening a terminal window and typing the following command and pressing enter (search “Terminal” in the spotlight to open it).
$ node -v
Note: the dollar sign ($) represents the terminal prompt, you don’t have to type it when you’re executing a command.
This is the actual plugin that provides the requester’s interface in Atom. Follow these steps to get the package and load it into Atom.
Note: if you are planning on developing the application you should review the section for developers at the end.
Open a terminal window and execute the following command.
$ apm install https://github.com/cromaLab/atom-codeon
Now you should either setup a local server to manage the requests or configure Codeon to connect with a remote server. You can find more information in setting up your local server in this repository.
Failed to activate the atom-codeon package: Cannot find module 'socket.io-client'
socket.io-parserare stored in
atom-codeon\node_modules\socket.io\node_modules(the directory that was cloned) and need to be moved up two directories. If this persists, confirm that the symbolic link worked and that the same change was made in
If using Windows: There may be an issue with the server due to filepath name differences on Mac and Windows (backslashes vs. forward slashes)
You can toggle request list using CMD + SHIFT + V.
You can start recording using CMD + SHIFT + E.
Now open Atom, and try it!
If you plan on collaborating with this repository, you will have to clone this repository, and create a symbolic link from the local repo to Atom’s packages directory so that it loads using the latest version of the code. This can be done with the following command:
$ ln -s /path/to/this/repo ~>/.atom/packages/atom-codeon
If this doesn't work, try to make the link by giving the full path to each directory, for example:
$ ln -s C:/Users/path/to/repo C:/Users/User/.atom/packages
Changing the paths as needed.
Alternatively, you can make a symbolic link to the standard installation by switching the locations in the previous command.
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
