Install Atom

See website (or scroll to bottom of releases page for downloads on github)

For linux ignore any distro version and download latest version (at least 1.9.0) and:-

sudo dpkg --install atom-amd64.deb # debian, mint, ubuntu

Mac/Windows users could just download direct (or homebrew on Mac)

Tough luck if you want the 32 bit version on linux

Install Packages

From the atom editor install the project-runner and atom-k9 packages.

To explore JRubyArt examples open k9_samples folder, select project-runner from the menu, then choose the run from the sub-menu, launches sketches in a random order per folder.

What’s it look like

Using the atom-k9 package you can run even bare sketches from the atom editor just like jEdit and vim.
