      Atom vs Brackets opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Atom is a great alternative to Brackets.
      Szubxero Atom is among the members of the "Visual Studio Code" family of IDEs/editors. These applications are feature-rich, extensible and semi-lightweight solutions that are language-neutral for the most part, not as large as a full IDE yet much more powerful than a simple editor. The various members of this family (e.g., Atom, Brackets, VS Code, etc.) are IMHO nearly equal in quality and utility, and which one decides to use is largely a matter of taste.
