How to test a language-* package?


#1

Hi, I am creating a language support package and would like to know how can I do test on language in question.

Also when I list the installed packages mine don’t appear, so if I open a new window I can’t do any test with my new package.

Thanks.

Hey, what I ended up doing was moving the entire folder of my package to ~/.atom/packages/ then look for it in the Settings window in Atom.

You can have your package anywhere in your system, then inside your package folder you can run apm link --dev and that command is going to create a symbolic link of you package to ~/.atom/dev and then you can open Atom with atom --dev and start testing your package, when you finish just run atom unlink --dev to remove your package from the dev folder.
