Install package modules for Linter package in Atom
I’m using the Atom text editor, and have installed the the ‘Linter’ package so I can get realtime debugging/error reports when editing.
Atom has an UI for auto-installing packages – one-click installs, so I have no idea how to do it manually.
I’m very new to Git, and coding in general, so the installation instructions in the documentation for this package are not very helpful (for me).
Basically, I’m trying to install/run/get PHP validation going when I’m using Atom text editor. How can I do this?
