a text editor made by Github,
very extensible because
much like emacs,
it’s mostly written in a dynamic language
Unlike emacs, it’s not an evolutionary cul-de-sac.
Probably the hottest hotness at the moment.
Powerful. Slow and RAM-hungry.
I use it a lot despite this, because it is vibrant.
remote-atom allows you to edit
files on remote servers that you don’t want to use vim on.
Not an extension, but be aware the
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
tl;dr if a pane has an italic header, double click on it to
keep it to hand.
