Linux Tools

  • Ubuntu for Windows - This provides a self-contained Linux environment on a Windows 10 computer.
  • Intro to Bash - Bash is the command line interface used in Linux environments. Meeting recording with Chris Sharp.
  • Intro to Vim - Vim is the primary text editor used in Linux environments.

Git: Git is a software version control system designed to track software code changes. Evergreen's code changes are tracked at https://git.evergreen-ils.org/. Git is almost always used from a command line interface, but there is a free 'Git for Windows' application that offers basic functionality (https://git-scm.com/download/win).

Launchpad: Launchpad is the bug / wish list tracker that the Evergreen community uses. See: https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen

Text Editor: Any plain text editor can be used. Notepad++ (available from https://notepad-plus-plus.org/) is a simple open-source code editor. Visual Studio Code Editor is free code editor available from Microsoft (https://code.visualstudio.com/) that has the advantage of a built-in console so that you can update and compile code, plus view console output when testing the code, in the same window.
