Install Light Table IDE in Ubuntu 16.04 via PPA

Light Table is an integrated development environment for software engineering developed by Chris Granger and Robert Attorri. It features real-time feedback allowing instant execution, debugging and access to documentation. The instant feedback provides an unusual execution environment intended to help developing abstractions.

The development team attempted to create a program which shows the programmer what the effects of their additions are in real-time, rather than requiring them to work out the effects as they write the code.Though the program began by only supporting Clojure, it has since aimed to support Python and JavaScript due to their popularity. The developers claim that the software can reduce programming time by up to 20%.

To make it easy to install Light Table IDE in Ubuntu, there’s now a PPA that contains an installer script, which automatically downloads the official Linux package from its website, installs and creates a launcher shortcut in your system for better Ubuntu integration.
First download the script from the link:Light Table Installer (.deb)
Select download the package "lighttable-installer_xxx_amd64.deb", the click install via Ubuntu Software.

Or open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run command install the downloaded package. The script starts automatically after installation:
sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/lighttable-installer_*.deb
If everything goes OK, you’ll be finally able to launch the IDE from Unity Dash, or other Application Launcher.

(Optional) To receive future updates of Light Table along with other system updates, you may add the PPA repository so to get updates via Software Updater once a new release is made into PPA.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:dr-akulavich/lighttable
You can then disable, remove, or edit the PPA via System Settings -> System -> Software & Updates -> Other Software.
