I previously created a package using
$HOME/github/language-caople . However, when I tried to edit files in that package, nothing changed even when I reloaded the Window, because it appears that Atom made a copy of the package in the
packages folder that was not being kept up-to-date.
Following other advice I went to the
github/language-caople folder and run
apm develop language-caople, it creates a junction at
$HOME/.atom/dev/packages/language-caople leading to the same directory. However, when I run Atom, the package appears in the Development section but does not work. An Install button is given for the package, but clicking it gives the message “Installing firstname.lastname@example.org failed. Request for package information failed: not found”
Can anyone tell me what is wrong and where I need to put the package for it to work?
