Atom Editor

Atom Logo

I have been using the Atom Editor by GitHub as my primary programming text editor for a few months.

Here’s a list of packages that I use, and would recommend if you want to try it out.

These are not Atom specific packages. Most other text editors have them too. It makes for a better experience compared to using the Atom without any packages.

As an editor, Atom is still rough around the edges. The start up time is slow, opening and closing Atom multiple times for quick file edits is not feasible.

Overall, I’ve been happy with it so far and don’t see myself switching to another editor any time soon.
