Seamlessly edit files together in real-time

VS Code JetBrains Android Studio

Overview

GitLive’s real-time editing allows you to open a teammate’s file and start editing it exactly like you would in a Google Doc. This feature will undoubtedly boost your productivity when you want to fix code issues with a teammate.

Pre- Requisites

In order to collaborate with a teammate you need to have access to the same repository as the teammate you wish to collaborate with. If they open a file from another repository the live session will pause until they return to a common repository file.

Instructions

Step 1

Access the feature by clicking the pen icon next to your teammate’s name and selecting “Collaborate on their files” (you will be the guest).

Click on Collaborate

Step 2

You will then get a pop-up notification that you have sent the request to collaborate and are waiting for your teammate to accept.

Step 3

The teammate you are looking to collaborate with (the host) will then get a pop-up notification that you request to collaborate.

As with all GitLive features, real-time editing works interoperably between supported IDEs!
