Hi Gonzalo,

I'm not sure what you mean by 'how to use an editor on my own console'. Usually when developing, you will have both your terminal (or command line if you are on Windows) and your preferred editor open. Some IDEs even offer a built-in terminal so you can use that one instead.

If you don't want to use workspaces, all you need to do is clone the repository to your working directory on your own machine. There are lots of videos out there on cloning remote repos like this one for instance. If you want to create your own repo, navigate to the desired location on your machine and then use the git init command. After you've cloned/created a repo you can open/create the files in your editor and make your changes, which you can then commit to the remote you've set up.

Hope this helps!

trio interactive, thx for your answer, in fact, my question is super simple, but annoying for me, i'm complicated trying to find out how to write the @ (at symbol in the Unix console, even on treehouse workspace doesn´t appear just using the classic ctrl+alt Q = @ on my laptop) so if you can help me with this "maybe silly question" i´,ll be happy..

hello, I find out how to write : the tilde ~ using Linux console, you can use the "AltGr " fallow by the symbol you want to use. "AltGr"+"+" =~

for the "at" symbol @ on the Linux console, you can "AltGr"+ Q = @;

this maybe looks super basics, but I have some struggle trying to find out how to deal with this.... lol.
