Using Atom to code remotely

Modified 2018-06-22 by Andrea Censi

With Atom, you are able to remotely code on files located on your Duckiebot with a GUI. The benefit of using Atom is that you are able to install extensions such as an IDE for Python, a Markdown previewer, or just use custom themes to avoid coding in the terminal.

Follow these instructions:

Install remote-atom

laptop $ sudo apm install remote-atom

Now, we need to edit our SSH config so that any data send to the port 52698, which is the port remote-atom is using, is forwarded via SSH to our local machine. Edit the file “~/.ssh/config”. There, you add “RemoteForward 52698 127.0.0.1:52698” to your host. The resulting host will look similar to

Host lex
    User julien
    Hostname lex.local
    RemoteForward 52698 127.0.0.1:52698

Now, we need to connect to our duckiebot via SSH and install rmate (and simultaniously rename it to ratom)

duckiebot $ sudo wget -O /usr/local/bin/ratom https://raw.github.com/aurora/rmate/master/rmate
duckiebot $ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/ratom

Now, you just need to launch Atom on your local machine, go to Packages->Remote Atom->Start Server.

You can now edit a file in a terminal connected to your duckiebot via SSH by typing

duckiebot $ sudo ratom filename

And atom will automatically open the file on your local machine. In the settings of remote-atom, you can also set the package to start the server automatically on launching atom on your local machine.
