About TeleType for Atom

Teletype for Atom lets developers share their workspace with team members and collaborate on code in real time.

  • Teletype for Atom wires in keystrokes of remote collaborators directly into the code editor. Provides conflict-free, low-latency collaboration. One of the most loved features and a must-have if you use Atom.

  • Teletype(beta) for Atom lets developers share their workspace with team members and collaborate on code in real time.

  • Teletype introduces the concept of real-time "portals" for sharing workspaces. When a host opens a portal, their active tab becomes a shared workspace. There, invited collaborators can join in and make edits in real time. As the host moves between files, collaborators follow along with the active tab automatically.
