[SOLVED] install offline ATOM editor

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to install ATOM offline

Is atom install file is in Devuan repo ?

i've looked here -> https://pkginfo.devuan.org/cgi-bin/poli … m&x=submit

but it seem not (not sure It's necessary in order to have it running correctly ?)

1. Does this version match the version in your repo? Devuan is basically Debian without systemd (plus some tweaks AFAIK). That means Debian rules will likely apply: "One cannot simply..." install a random .deb. You need to a) meet the correct versions of the dependencies and ensure the same of related software. That is why we have package managers. And b)ensure said random .deb is stable.

Yes, that's correct to search a package or application by enter his name to the box and hit enter/submit, apparently atom it's not in the Devuan repository.

I just checked even at Debian tracker, atom does not exist.
https://tracker.debian.org/search?package_name=atom
The causes can be different ie conflicts with Debian policies or somethingelse that you can ask the author of the application.

There is no other way but to compile it or find a snap, flatpak for it.

Re: [SOLVED] install offline ATOM editor

Thank you @Nili,

If it appear that ATOM is not in line with the Debian\Devuan policies then no ATOM for me either.

I will have to find an alternative any ideas ?

BTW

I wanted to reach the authors of this .Appimage but unfortunatly no contact info on the website hmm too bad.

To obtain a root shell use su -. Using just su will result in "command not found" messages.

But Atom takes longer to start up than emacs. This is  because of the dynamic architecture of the app. The majority of code is written in JavaScript as opposed to C or C++, which is important for Atom’s extensibility, but makes it more challenging to ensure that the app starts quickly. Atom currently uses more memory than emacs.
