What is Coala ?
Need to make Coala Newbie friendly !!
Coala is an excellent tool for a newbie coder to check and correct his code. It could save him a lot of hassle if he can run Coala without having to know much detail and write complex commands. Coala needs to aspire for ease of access and it could become a shining dagger in the armory of a newbie coder.
How easy using Coala (with default settings) should be?
It should be as easy as a pip installation. For those of you who do not know, pip is a python command that lets you install software. You just need to open the command prompt (python should be installed on the system) and just type:
pip install <software name>
pip install is supported by almost all softwares and is very user-friendly.
Installing coala by pip install !
How is Coala run (on default settings) presently?
Right now the command to run Coala is unnecessarily complex and confuses a newbie coder.
coala -S python.bears=PEP8Bear python.files=\*\*/\*.py \--apply-patches --save
Advantages of simplifying the process
- Higher adoption.
- Increased user-friendliness.
- Increases interest in Coala software development.
