Remote collaboration using the Saros Plugin

Remote collaboration is a hot topic

These days many people use Google docs or other online collaboration suites. Not only you see your own cursor and text updates in a browser window. Also the cursors and text updates from remote collaborators are visible while they happen. Wouldn’t it be cool to have this in your Sigasi Studio too? With so many engineers working from home these days, that could be very helpful. It can replace hopping over to the desk of a colleague to discuss code changes or to do actual pair programming.


Recently, a customer contacted us with a question about the Saros Eclipse plugin. We hadn’t heard about this plugin before. After investigating we learned that Sigasi Studio is compatible with this plugin since the Sigasi Studio 4.5 release.
