$ apm develop <package-name> $ atom -d
apm develop will clone the repository on
~/github/<package_name> or in the directory defined by the variable
$ATOM_REPOS_HOME. It will also install dependencies and create a link from
~/.atom/dev/packages/<package_name> to the repository directory.
atom -d opens atom in development mode with the cloned package installed. Since
$ apm develop creates a link to the cloned repository opening Atom in development mode will automatically load the package. Note that the cloned package won’t be loaded outside development mode.
If working on a PR go to the repository directory and update origin to point to your fork:
