Clearly I am not doing something correct. Here’s what I did:
- $ mkdir ~/Desktop/temp
- $ cd ~/Desktop/temp
- $ git clone email@example.com:ltconwell/dash-hack.git
That’s just an example project, I’ve tried it with multiple different repos.
- Open Atom
- File -> Add Project Folder…
- Desktop -> temp -> dash-hack
- Make changes to code
Nothing happens - git & github tabs remain blank. The file will change colors appropriately in the tree viewer and the individual lines of code will change colors appropriately. Also, there is no option available to change branches in the bottom status bar as shown in the images of the git integration as seen at https://github.atom.io/
In the image on that website, the status bar shows:
README.md 2:17 show-pr v ^ 0 files
Showing an option to switch branches and presumably push/pull
init.sh 1:1 CRLF UTF-8 Shell Script 0 files
Just indicating the line ending types. There is no information about git.
So it appears that it’s not integrating git at all. I have Atom 1.18.0 and git 2.13.0 installed. Git works correctly as long as I do everything manually through the term. Atom seems to do nothing with git other than show color changes in the tree viewer.
