I wanted to try out a demo of the editor-framework, but I’m having trouble getting it to work. (This is my first real attempt at doing anything with Electron, so I could easily be doing something wrong.)
First attempt: Clone fireball-x/editor-framework. Run
npm install, as directed.
npm install fails - it gets as far as the
install-builtin Gulp task, but that gave me a permission denied error while trying to clone one of the repositories. (Unfortunately, I failed to make a note of which one.) npm+gulp+git’s prompts to confirm SSH keys were also not interacting well with my PowerShell window. To fix all of this, I changed the gulpfile to clone over HTTPS instead of SSH.
Second attempt: After getting
npm install to work, the next step (I thought) was to run the demo. From the
editor-framework local copy, I ran
gulp run, but that didn’t work either:
 Error: Can not find function “init” in your App
Third attempt: I thought that maybe I needed to download something else to get the demo. After poking around some, I found the web site (it might be nice if editor-framework’s repo linked directly to this). I hoped to find a nice simple “Download” link, but I didn’t see one; I did see a “Project Source” link under Demo, so I followed that. Here I ran into another problem: Project Source > docs -> step 1 (step-1.md) -> Get Fireball -> dead link.
I’m not sure where to go from here. Any suggestions?
