I'm new here and I've just installed ECF to do real-time collaboration for the first time.
I studied it for 2days and now it's "Sharing Editor" function is perfectly working!!
But, I realized that I can only share editor with one person. Not more than 2.
The function that I needed was Share Editor to all of my teammates
I just wondered is there a function that shares editor to more than 2 people, or if there is any plan to make it possible in the future:)
(I saw similar project called "RT Shared Editing" but whenever I try to share the editor to my teammates, it sends open command to all of my teammates and if there's no matching project or file in their local eclipse, it fails. So I like the way that current docshare does)
There were plans to extend the shared editor to more than 2 people, but the committer that started/did much of this work (Mustafa Isik) is no longer contributing to ECF. Here's a very nice video demonstration he did at the time: https://vimeo.com/1195398.
I'll send Mustafa an email to see if we can re-engage him. I agree it would be nice to have multi-user docshare (and extend docshare in other ways), but lacking contributions or direct support the project currently doesn't have the resources to do this.
If you would like to get involved and start a coordinated effort to add this functionality and revive work on docshare/cola, I would be willing to participate and assist.
If you would like to do this, or get involved/help with ECF in other ways, I would suggest that you join the ecf-dev mailing list at: https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/ecf-dev
Thanks for your interest and use of ECF!
