1.1. Intro


Hacker guide - optional steps

The following steps are optional and you can skip them. They are here to make Atom more friendly and it is something the CityOS team does. Have fun!

  • Open your terminal (Mac OS shell) by typing "terminal" in your spotlight search:

1.2. brew - package manager for macOS

  • First we will install a package manager for macOS called 'brew'
  • On the Homebrew website, copy the line of code that appears under 'Install Homebrew' and paste it into your terminal. Or just copy & paste the code below:
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

in your terminal. It is a good habit to keep brew updated:

brew update

1.3. npm - package manager for JavaScript

Now let's install npm (if you don't have it already), the package manager for JavaScript.

brew install npm

1.4. uncrustify - source code beautifier

Then we will install uncrustify - a source code beautifier to keep our code formatting pretty on every save.

brew install uncrustify

1.5. atom-beautify

Using atom installer apm we will install two plugins atom-beautify that works with uncrustify and cleans our code

apm install atom-beautify

We recommend that you enable beautify on save.

1.6. symbols-tree-view

Now install symbols-tree-view which will give us a very useful right menu with all "symbols" (functions and other important things) we can quickly jump to.

apm install symbols-tree-view
