What is Atom?

Atom is a desktop application built with HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and Node.js integration. It runs on Electron, a framework for building cross platform apps using web technologies. Atom download links available.

The app offers support for languages such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Ruby, Java, C, C ++, C #, Objective-C, CoffeeScript, typescript, and SQL. Using the app you can write pages and web applications, as well as desktop software or mobile application. Atom is equipped with a number of useful features, among which we find syntax mechanism, editing files in tabs, creating code snippets, displaying text minimap, intelligent syntax auto-complete and integrated file manager.

The biggest advantage of Atom is the packages manager with which you can freely modify the possibilities of the program. Atom offers currently access to over 2000 packages among which we find functions responsible for managing files, auto-save documents, launch terminal functions directly in the app and much more. There is a option to split your Atom interface into multiple panes to compare and edit code across files and find, preview, and replace text as you type in a file or across all your projects.

In addition, Atom offers easy and convenient personalization options. You can change themes, select different fonts and colors, etc. The program database offers currently over 600 graphic themes to choose from. Atom helps you write code faster with a smart, flexible autocomplete.
