Sluggish with large files

With too many tabs & large files, it becomes quite sluggish even on new machines. Maybe native UI would help.


Consumes a lot of resources

Needs a lot of space and system resources to do something way slower than others that I've tested.


Very good text editor

about Atom · ·

One of the best text editors, use it a lot. Quite big file size but I can work around it. Sometimes package manager can get buggy too.

Not good editor

about Atom and Sublime Text · · -2 Helpful

Atom editor is a copy of sublime text, we know this, but this editor isn't good editor.
A big problem of this editor is that not have a intellisense autocompletion of your code.
Impossible to have an autocomplete of your php class and other.
Not good.
I stay on sublime text he is better than of atom, no doubt.

I'm pretty sure that you can use the package that has that functionality. Hence one of the main features of the editor.
