How to update Atom?


#1

I know that Atom will automatically update when a new release is available (at least on OS X and Microsoft Windows, currently), but I’m using the master branch (as my main/default text editor). Is it enough to use the following commands to update Atom (on OS X)?

$ cd /path/to/atom && git pull
$ script/build
$ ctags -R /path/to/atom # I add this command because I often read/search the source code of Atom

(Instructions for GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows are appreciated, too.)


#2

Yes, those are the commands I use. They should work on Windows too except for the final path on the ctags command.

I see. Thanks for your reply.
