    It appears that there's a bug preventing the Edit button from appearing on markdown files (extensions . md and .markdown in my repo). That's a real drag because my use case involved collaborating on markdown files in Stash repos. https://bitbucket.org/atlassian/stash-realtime-editor-plugin/issue/25/readmemd-not-supported

    This is broken in the most recent versions of stash. Great idea thought, and a much needed addition. A feature like this should be a core feature of Stash.

    More details

    Have you ever wanted to quickly edit a file in a repository without having to clone it? Or pair with another developer across the world in real-time?

    Meet the Stash Realtime Editor, edit files in realtime directly from the Stash interface - no cloning, no local editor.


    • Stash 3.0.0 or later
    • an internet connection (the Stash server and any collaborating clients must be able to communicate with https://stasheditor.firebaseio.com to use the collaboration features of this plugin)

    A note on security

    The Stash Realtime Editor uses a secured Firebase instance to store temporary deltas while your code is being edited. Only users with the Share URL generated for each editing session are able to access those deltas.

    This Firebase integration can be enabled on a per-repository basis. But if your company restricts whether code fragments can temporarily exist in the cloud, and you do not trust repository administrators to disable collaboration, the Realtime Editor may not be for you.
