Raspberry Pi WebIDE Update to 0.3.3 #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

We have a new alpha release of the Rapsberry Pi WebIDE ready to go.  This latest version includes a few bug fixes as well as some new settings that allow you to customize the editor.  The biggest new setting is one that allows you to manually git commit and push to Bitbucket when you’re ready.  You can also add a comment when doing so, to make it easier to track your changes.

The new changes for the 0.3.3 version of the WebIDE are as follows:

  • Add four new settings to the Settings Page
    • Use Soft Tabs (on or off)
    • Tab Size (2, 4, 6, or 8)
    • Show Invisibles (on or off) (shows whitespaces, tabs and spaces, etc)
    • Manual Git Commits and Pushes
  • Add ability to manually commit and push file changes. This includes adding comments.
    • Do a git status on the file to check if it is in need of a commit and push, and populate editor bar.
  • Set editor defaults to use soft tabs with a setting of 4 tab size, and show invisibles off
  • Add a default .gitignore file to reduce chance of .pyc files getting pushed out to bitbucket.
  • Fix for the terminal getting out of sync with the editor
  • Prevent overwriting of Adafruit project files
  • Update manual installation instructions
  • Install node.js as part of installation again.

Upgrading from 0.2.0 and higher

You can upgrade from 0.2.0 and higher from within the editor.  If you’d like the increased speed using the new node binaries, you’ll want to uninstall/install again.

  1. Ensure that your code is safely saved in your repository at bitbucket.org.
  2. Login to the editor.
  3. Click Update in the upper right.
  4. Update should take about a minute.

Upgrading From 0.1.9 and lower

To install this new editor, you’ll want to completely remove your old editor, and run the installation script again.

  1. Ensure that your code is safely saved in your repository at bitbucket.org.
  2. Uninstall using the following script
    1. curl https://raw.github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-WebIDE/release/scripts/uninstall.sh | sh
  3. Either make sure there are no rogue node processes running, or restart your Pi.
  4. Install the new and improved WebIDE
  5. curl https://raw.github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-WebIDE/alpha/scripts/install.sh | sudo sh
