I’m completely new to both Atom and programming so this might be a very basic (translation: dumb) question.
I’m starting out with learning Ruby and I’d like to be able to run the scripts I’m writing within Atom. Is this possible without installing a new package that allows you to run scripts?
I didn’t think it was, so I went off in search of a package that would serve my needs. I found two: atom runner master and atom script 2.3.5. My problem is that I’m unsure how to actually install them.
I’ve tried searching for them (after moving the packages into the /.atom/packages folder) via the Preferences > Packages tab, but they can’t be found there. I also tried opening my Mac’s terminal and typing in the apm install but my terminal is saying it doesn’t recognize the apm command (I was trying to follow the instructions on the following post: http://joshbranchaud.com/blog/2014/02/27/Installing-Packages-In-Atom-Editor.html).
Any guidance would be much appreciated.
