A hackable text editor for the 21st Century. 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.
- What should be a simple application is implemented in the extremely bloated Electron framework. No thanks, I'll take something native.
- Despite sometimes high demanding (for an text editor), good as an Editor/IDE.
- Amazing UI, large variety of useful plugins, nice features like multiple cursors, open source and free to use
