Collaborate with this solid addon. It works so fast and so stable. You will love it! :)
Collaby is working with socket.io and the internal atom methods.
It is possible to start a server. The server will listen on the port written in the settings (default: 80).
Then it will be possible to join as a client. The client is only able to connect to existing servers. He has to input an ip-address to join. After successful connection the client has to input a working directory, where all the server directories will be synced.
The base is always the server. Every project opened on the server will be synced to the client's working directory. There are also multiple projects from different directories possible. They will all synced as subdirectories in client's working directory.
Example: Server projects:
After syncing with the server, the client will sync all the opened projects. Example: User's working directory: C:/Software/Collaboration/
At every sync process, collaby checks if - File exists on client - File size is different - Change date of server's file is newer than client file's date
If one of this file is an image or any other binary file, the created file on the client is not readable.
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
