A tool you can customize to do anything, but also use productively on the first day without ever touching a config file. Atom is modern, approachable, and hackable to the core
Atom is a desktop application based on web technologies. Like other desktop apps, it has its own icon in the dock, native menus and dialogs, and full access to the file system.
Atom is composed of over 50 open-source packages that integrate around a minimal core.
Atom comes loaded with the features you’ve come to expect from a modern text editor. Here are a few of them:
– File system browser
– Fuzzy finder for quickly opening files
– Fast project-wide search and replace
– Multiple cursors and selections
– Multiple panes
– Code folding
– A clean preferences UI
– Import TextMate grammars and themes
Atom will automatically update when a new release is available.
