in utopian-io •  last year


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

  1. Higher adoption.
  2. Increased user-friendliness.
  3. Increases interest in Coala software development.
