apm install atom-leap
(Experimental) Leap Motion support for Atom!
This package is being built more as an experiment into what is possible with gesture-based controls in a text editor rather than a tool to be used daily (Although if you are able to then that’s a bonus!).
The intention is that it will replace the need for mouse input for Atom thereby reducing the distance needed to travel from the keyboard.
Installation can be performed within the Atom editor or via the command
apm install atom-leap.
Before use you will need to follow the instructions to set up your Leap Motion. Once set up you should be good to go!
To toggle the Leap Motion controls you will either need to select the menu option under
Packages -> Leap Motion or press
ctrl + alt + L.
Currently the only controls are swiping to scroll (as if you were swiping on a touch screen). It’s fairly temperamental so don’t expect it to be perfect yet!
