Announce: Project Plus


#1

From the README…

Project Plus

Simply awesome project management in Atom.

You may be thinking… Yet another project manager (for atom)? Atom contains a
lot of piping to make project management awesome. It’s missing those few bits
that expose that awesome to users. This is that package.

  • No configuration — atom was already keeping track of your projects

  • No mess (project files) — atom already knows about your projects and their needs (and is planning to know more)

  • No weirdness — switching between projects (in the same window) is done correctly and does not corrupt state (unlike every existing project package I’ve seen)

  • Fully supports projects with multiple paths

Usage

  • ctrl-alt-p (linux/windows) or ctrl-cmd-p (mac) to open the project finder
  • enter will open the project in the current window
  • shift-enter will open the project in a new window

Is there something else lacking in project management that you can think of? Let me know.


#2

Does this package provides an UI to manage projects? I’ve not seen any project manager that provides an useful UI that’s as simple as open-recent.


#3

What do you mean by manage?

project-plus:switch is a command – it opens up a finder to search through your existing projects and can switch to another project (within the same window).


#4

I’ve made the package now work in 1.5+ (it required 1.7+ before which is currently unreleased). This was due to me relying on the new serialization (which makes the task of finding and switching projects easy, I had to shim a lot and will be very happy when 1.7 gets released).
