GitHub Atom is a cross-platform, open source text editor. It can be used to open various text file formats, provides helpful editing features, and allows users to customize the text editor by installing packages to add functionality.
Atom supports various file formats, including .HTML, .CSS, .PHP, and .XML. The text editor features smart autocompletion for writing code faster and find and replace for finding, replacing, and previewing text in a single file or across projects. It enables users to share their workspace with others and collaborate in real time with Teletype. It also comes with a file system browser for working with projects and multiple panes to compare and edit code.
One of the best features of the text editor is its built-in package manager. You can search and install or create your own packages to add functionality to the editor. These packages can be anything from syntax highlighting improvements to support for new programming languages to a customizable clock in the status bar.
Atom is a text editor that comes with many of the same features as basic text editors. However, its extensibility, through the use of packages, is what really sets it apart from other editors. If you are looking for a completely customizable text editor, GitHub Atom is a great option that rivals the best text editors.
