Floobits plugin for Sublime Text 2 & 3

Real-time collaborative editing. Think Etherpad, but with native editors. This is the plugin for Sublime Text. We also have plugins for Emacs, Vim, and IntelliJ.

Development status: Reasonably stable. We dogfood it daily and rarely run into issues.

Installation instructions

  • If you have Package Control, go to Package Control → Install Package and search for Floobits. Select the Floobits package and install it.

  • If you don't have Package Control (or you prefer to install the plugin manually), clone this repository or download and extract this tarball.

  • Rename the directory to "Floobits".

  • In Sublime Text, go to Preferences -> Browse Packages.

  • Drag, copy, or move the Floobits directory into your Packages directory.

If you'd rather create a symlink instead of copy/moving, run something like:

ln -s ~/code/floobits-sublime ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 3/Packages/Floobits

Once the plugin is installed, you'll be asked whether you want to create an account or sign in. If you choose to sign in, a browser window will open allowing you to enter your Floobits credentials.

For more help, see our Sublime Text help page.

Configuration

All configuration settings are stored in ~/.floorc.json. If you don’t have a ~/.floorc.json file, the plugin will create one. It will also open a web page showing the minimal information you’ll need to put in your ~/.floorc.json. After saving the file, restart Sublime Text.

Using Floobits to Collaborate

After creating your account, you’ll want to create a workspace or two. A workspace is a collection of files and buffers that users can collaborate on.

See https://floobits.com/help/plugins/sublime/#usage for instructions on how to create workspaces and collaborate with others.

Errata

Windows

Sublime Text 2 on Windows requires Package Control 3.0 to be installed to function properly. This is due to a bug in the select module that ST2 ships by default.

Linux

On Linux, Sublime Text 2 and 3 ship without the _ssl module. Installing Package Control 3.0 will install the missing elements. Otherwise, we try to work around it by running an SSL proxy using the system Python.

OS X

Our plugin doesn't work on 10.6 and earlier. This appears to be a bug in OS X. Please upgrade to a newer version.

Help

If you have trouble setting up or using this plugin, please contact us.
