allow being able to share an opened file for pair programming
It would be nice being able to share a file for pair programming. I don't how hard this might be. I found it's called remote pairing.
I love this request!
Implementation does seem though at first sight.
But then again: once the viewports are synchronized, Redcar would simply receive two input streams instead of one..
I think the easiest way to tackle this would be to use the Google Wave API: http://code.google.com/apis/wave/wavedata/
Simultaneous editing is a hard problem.
Luckily Wave has a Java API.
This is a crazy idea and I like it.
I've been using virtual desktop software to teach friends to do some stuff and it *sucks*. The response was slow and what I was looking at was ugly, due to maximum compression.
This feature might be tough to develop, but maybe there is someone who has the skill, time and is crazy enough to do it.
To make this interesting, I put $50 as a reward.
Criteria to collecting the reward:
- the feature must make it to redcar release
- it must allow two people to be able to write into one file
- it should be fast
- bonus points for being able to change between files
Others can join me, to make this a real reward :)
