Atom for Mac

14 January 2021

A hackable text editor.

What is Atom for Mac

Atom is a desktop text editor 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. Open the dev tools, however, and Atom's web-based core shines through. Whether you're tweaking the look of Atom's interface with CSS or adding major features with HTML and JavaScript, it's never been easier to take control of your editor.

At GitHub, we're building the text editor we've always wanted. 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. We can't wait to see what you build with it.

I have been using it as an editor for HTML/JS/PHP. It does what it promises. The extension for Live Server work well too (only for HTML, not yet for PHP files). This is a great backup editor for Visual Studio Code.

I'm not a coder but I tried it out as a text editor for writing large files. Unfortunately it is *much* slower than BBEdit or IA Writer or Ulysses. Considering that it's coded as an Electron app I shouldn't be surprised by the slowness (or the bloated size of the app) but I'm disappointed. Probably great for coding but for writing I'll stick with the free tier of BBEdit.

Visual Studio Code has utterly and decisively defeated Atom and Sublime Text in the past two years. I tried the latest version just to see how it progressed since the time I switched to VSC 1.5 year ago. I am disappointed that the performance has not improved much at all. VSC is MUCH faster to launch and use.

great code editor, here's hoping Microsoft doesn't kill it, as I prefer it to Visual Studio Code.

I gave this a try mostly for advanced text editing features (the multi-line cursor feature), but lots of other cool stuff in here even if you are not a programmer. Looks snazzy as well.
