CodeStream puts team chat into Atom (and other IDEs) so that developers can discuss code where they code. Conversation threads automatically become annotations that live with the codebase forever, so your codebase gets smarter over time.
NOTE: CodeStream is currently in beta. Visit codestream.com to learn more.
Make sure you have the atom shell commands installed. From the atom command palette, run
Window: Install Shell Commands. Then from the command line, type:
apm install codestream
Once installed, toggle the CodeStream view via the Packages menu, or hit Cmd + Opt + O (Mac) / Ctrl + Alt + O (Windows). You can also click on the CodeStream logo that now appears in Atom’s statusbar.
If there are issues installing the plugin dependencies:
sudo xcode-select --install
brew install libgcryptor you by means of another package manager. Once installed, re-run
libssl-dev. On ubuntu, you can use
sudo apt install libssl-dev.
Select a file in your source tree and you’ll see a chat stream in a new pane on the right. In fact, each source file has its own contextual chat stream.
To talk about a specific block of code, just select the code in your buffer and then click on the “+” button that appears.
