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.
New features and improvements added to the newest version of software are available in Atom changelog where you can find all highlights from the official release notes.
