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.
- Atom is very similar in feel and functionality to Sublime Text, but much easier to extend. Even the source code of the editor itself is a breeze to read.
- It seems that Atom is better supported by developers and community. It receives updates faster.
