Plan for Nightlies?


#1

Is there any plan to have a nightly or alpha release?


#2

:+1: I would love this.


#3

I agree, nightlies would be a great addition. :thumbsup:


#4

Having a dev channel or nightly builds would be great to have. In the meantime, the editor is pretty easy to build from source (at least on a Mac), so it’s not too bad to just git pull and ./script/build to get master.


#5

Then input:

cd /path/to/your/atom/clone
git pull origin master
script/build

No ? :slight_smile:


#6

@abe I was able to build my own nightly that way, is there a build setting to force dev builds to be somewhere other than /Applications/Atom.app? I would like to be able to build custom versions without overriding the current release from Github.


#7

To change the Atom install path you’ll have to edit this line in the build Gruntfile. You can probably automate the process but it’s likely that it’ll break at some point.

@abe Thanks for the info.
