This package is pretty new. Issue reports and PRs are welcome.



  1. install the Perforce CLI utilities or P4V (which should come with the CLI utilities)
  2. ensure at least one of the following is true:
    • you have installed the p4 command in its default location
    • the p4 command’s location is in your PATH environment variable
    • you have set that location in the atom-perforce settings
  3. ensure that you can login to perforce via CLI and execute p4 commands from your project’s directory, as the plugin does not (yet?) attempt to manage perforce authentication
  4. use Atom’s command palette (shift+cmd+p or shift+ctrl+p) then type either “perforce” or “p4” to see and execute available commands and/or use the keymappings
