Tux Machines (TM)-specific
There seems to be a common belief that programmers usually work alone. This is completely untrue. Most of them create applications in teams exchanging ideas and sharing the source code through the Internet (or the Network in the office). There are some complex version control systems but they are suitable for large projects. What if you have a small project? Here comes is Gobby. With the help of this little app you can edit files together with other people or create new ones. Everything works remotely.
Firstly you have to run the editor. Probably you will find it in the system menu. If it isn’t there, you can run it by typing “gobby” in the terminal. Gobby works in the centralized environment where one copy of the program runs as a server, and the others are clients which have to connect to the server. To create a new server session you have to click on the “Create session” icon.
