Teletype for Atom vs Visual Studio Live Share: What are the differences?
Teletype for Atom: Code together 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; Visual Studio Live Share: Real-time collaborative development. When you start a live share session in Visual Studio 2017 or Visual Studio Code, your teammates get instant and secure access to your code in their own tool – no need to clone, copy, or configure anything.
Teletype for Atom and Visual Studio Live Share can be categorized as "Realtime Code Collaboration" tools.
Teletype for Atom is an open source tool with 2.16K GitHub stars and 186 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Teletype for Atom's open source repository on GitHub.
We're doing weekend hackathons with customers to help them implement our API faster. So, I'm searching for a great remote pair programming tool with seamless onboarding/set-up. Want it to be as close to a Collison Install ("hand me your laptop, and I'll install Stripe right now") experience as possible.
Has anyone used GitDuck, Tuple, etc. for something like this? I would love suggestions.
Gitduck is multiIDE (VSC is obviously not) and includes video/audio conferencing, so it solves several issues at once. Installation of the plugin is not difficult (search in the IDE plugin store, install, then click on a link you send them to join the pair programming room).
Hope it helps!
