hello dear opensuse-experts,
after musing about the best Editor to get started i have found out that Sublime & ATOM are quite very well. I think ATOM has a many many extensions and a quite very well GIT-support.
Now i am tryin to install Atom on OpenSuse (with the zypp-method)
i am going to to install Atom Editor on my openSUSE that use the Zypp package manager,
add i want to use the Atom official package repository to my system by running the following commands:
sudo sh -c 'echo -e "[Atom] name=Atom Editor baseurl=https://packagecloud.io/AtomEditor/atom/el/7/\$basearch enabled=1 type=rpm-md gpgcheck=0 repo_gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=https://packagecloud.io/AtomEditor/atom/gpgkey" > /etc/zypp/repos.d/atom.repo' sudo zypper --gpg-auto-import-keys refresh
i will try to install Atom using the great zypper-way
# Install Atom sudo zypper install atom # Install Atom Beta sudo zypper install atom-beta
Now - i will show some additional methods: Alternatively, - well i think that i can download the Atom .rpm package and install it directly:
sudo zypper in -y atom.x86_64.rpm
btw: besides this method we also have the option to run it in a Portable Mode on USB-device**
This is just great: Atom stores all the configuration and state in a so called .atom directory usually located in my home directory .
Well - with that - i can however run Atom in portable mode where both the app and the configuration are stored quite close together such as on a removable storage device. This is just a great option, isn ´t it!?
Some remarks regarding the setup: To setup Atom in portable mode. we are able to download the zip/tar.gz package for our system and extract it to your removable storage.
After this is done - we then create a .atom directory alongside the directory that contains the Atom binary, for example:
Some additional remarks - to the **Portable version: **
We have to take care for the settings - in order to make it running well:
Some of the settings are written down beliow:
The .atom directory must be writeable - if not - it is not working correcty
But sure thing: we can move an existing .atom directory to our portable device; This is working also very nice
Portable mode installations will not automatically update - sure thing.
