Editing an article in Gobby.

Gobby is a first-class, GUI-based text collaboration tool. You can use it, in conjunction with a collaboration server, to work together in real time with an unlimited number of people on any text based file, code or content. Fedora offers a server for Gobby running infinoted to maximize your online experience with your collaborators.

Runing Gobby

If needed, install the gobby05 package on your Fedora, CentOS, or Red Hat Enterprise Linux system:

su -c 'yum install gobby05'

or

su -c 'dnf install gobby05'
  1. Select Applications > Internet > Gobby Collaborative Editor from the main menu.
  2. Select the Direct Connection field at the bottom left, or File >Connect to server from the File menu.
  3. In the Connect to server dialog, enter infinote.fedoraproject.org in the Host field.
  4. Adjust your username and color in the preferences dialog.

Using Gobby

To see a document list, ensure that Window > Document list is selected on the Gobby menu. To see a list of online users, ensure that Window > User list is selected. You can also view a Chat window which allows you to talk to other participants.

To participate, select a document from the list and Subscribe to it. All participants see each other's changes as they are made. If you need information or want approval before making a large change, use the Chat window.
