What scope is my current document?
I don’t know, run Editor: Log Cursor Scope.
- symbol-tree-view for bearable navigation between definitions.
- remote-atom allows you to edit files on remote servers that you don’t want to use vim on.
- teletype enables generic live collaborative document editing
- Not an extension, but be aware the pending pane feature is handy but will confuse the crap out of you if you expect Atom not to try to guess whether you want to look at a file temporarily or permanently. tl;dr if a pane has an italic header, double click on it to keep it to hand.
Atom as a platform
People can and do build whole IDEs in atom.
