    Similar interface and functionality of a code editor, but Atom uses a lot of resources being that it is written in JavaScript.

    It seems that Atom is better supported by developers and community. It receives updates faster.

    Really slow editor, flashy but not an alternative to Sublime which focuses on speed and versatility. It has many plugins like sublime though.

    I dont like Atom as alternative of sublime text because it is much bigger then a sublime (about 200 mb against about 30mb) so it is bloatware.

    While Sublime is more like an editor, Atom is more like an IDE. A slow and bulky IDE.

    This is my favorite code editor. It is open source and portable, you can get a portable version that will fit onto a flash drive if you want. It is just as configurable as Sublime Text and has a large community producing great plugins. it has GIT support built in and excellent support for Javascript, HTML, CSS, and Python, and others of course. It has an integrated debugging system.

    As an Atom fork it has the same problems like Atom being more an IDE than an editor and the usage of the Electron Framework results in extremely more RAM usage (more than factor 10), CPU usage, loading time and disk usage.

    It is not really lightweight. It uses Electron which eats RAM and CPU!
