cse154 Working Directory
First and probably the most important thing: create a directory that you will do your CSE 154 work in! A new subdirectory will be created for each assignment. We recommend the following structure:
path-to-school-folders/cse154/ practice-work/ cp1/ hw1/ cp2/ hw2/ ...
Atom is our recommended text editor. Follow this tutorial on how to set up the Atom editor for this class.
- The easiest way to use Git in this class is with Atom. You can find a walkthrough for getting started with Git and your first CSE 154 CP1 repository in the following tutorials based on your operating system:
- If you don't want to use Atom with Git and you don't have Git installed on your computer:
You will need a Chrome browser on your machine for debugging and checking the level of accessilibity of your web pages using the Lighthouse tool. Please make sure this is on your computer.
Note: You only need Atom, Git, and Chrome for the first few weeks of the course. But soon we will be working with local servers using MAMP. We recommend installing these as early as possible to "complete" your CSE 154 development environment, though it's not required until later.
Set up the Windows or Mac version depending on your system:
If you have a text editor, Git and your first CSE 154 repository cloned, a browser, and MAMP, then congratulations! Your CSE 154 web development setup is complete!
