Can we run run two plugins at a time by using atlas-run command

I installed confluence 5.6.5 and created a plugin named Adddraftbuton then I go into root folder where it is created and run atlas-run then it confluence on localhost:1990 and Iam able to see the plugin.

Than I created another plugin named macro and went into the root folder and run atlas-run and again confluence started on localhost:1990 and Iam able to see macro.

IF I need to see both draftbutton and macro do I need to run atlas-run command from which folder?Can I see both at a time?

I have created all these plugins from tutorials.

Another doubt is I installed confluence on port 8090 but when I do custom code changes are taking place and starting confluence at 1990.Do I need to run atlas-run everytime to see my plugin on conluence GUI?

Please answer

There are several options.  atlas-run starts up a Confluence server on a specific port (1990 by default). So you could run two Confluence servers if you changed the port, you can see params here:

but you don't want to do that! smile


yellow-star What makes the most sense in your case (and how I develop) is to run a single Confluence server from another directory (like a directory called 'atlassian-servers') is using the command:  

atlas-run-standalone --product confluence

This will download, install, configure and start up a Confluence server.  Its one of the best commands in the SDK!

Once that is done continue your development in each of your other directories. Then you can use atlas-cli + the pi command will install your AddOn directly to the server.  Or atlas-package and then atlas-install-plugin


The problem with running atlas-run in the directory where you are developing is that sometimes you want to blow away the "target" directory for a completely clean build. But when you do that the entire Confluence must again be downloaded (even if local) and installed before starting up. 



Another option to consider is:

  1. Launch Confluence from one your projects (using atlas-run as usual). That plugin will be auto-installed.
  2. Build the other plugin with atlas-package, then deploy the plugin JAR using UPM (uploading the JAR to Confluence).

It has the advantage that you don't a third Confluence.
