I’ve been using GitHub’s Atom editor for the past couple
of months. I don't completely love it (there are elements that I miss from my
experiences with Vim: startup speed, maturity of some core editing components,
not being able to run it in a terminal) but I'm using Atom though because the
way the editor is built (built on Electron)
allows for some very cool and unique experiences.
By default Atom comes with a few built-in extensions/packages available.
However, for the purposes of development you will definitely need other
packages and the community has been quick to fill in that gap.
In this post I have picked some useful and/or "most interesting" Atom packages
I've found. Interesting in this case means that they really only could have
been done as they are in Atom or a similarly flexible editor.
