"ATOM"

What do you like best?

What I like the most about ATOM as a programmer is that its interface or personal desktop is very easy to manage and it can have all the necessary tools to develop, such as the directory structure, where it can locate the files to be programmed very easily. depends on the program You can install the compatible add-ons, and you can count on the help of the commands and the syntax in line, which facilitates the life of the programmer and increases his productivity. Another thing that pleases is that the documentation and the videos to learn to use this tool exist a great variety. And it's completely free to install on Linux, which is the operating system platform that is used on the computers of the Ministry's developers.

What do you dislike?

Although the interface is very practical and pleasant, when it comes to developing a project code, we also have to have an account that is not easy to adapt and use its tools, which requires time for the programmer to use efficiently all the resources offered by ATOM, causing loss of productivity at the beginning of the use of the program. Another thing that I do not like about ATOM is that it is very uncomfortable to install and configure its complement in the Linux operating system specifically in Linux Mint. It is really complicated and requires technical knowledge to install this editor.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend it for those companies that develop large projects that require efficient organization and access to their code. This software facilitates and guarantees the reorganization and better management of your projects. This editor also allows to strengthen teamwork, since it has add-ons to integrate the code into a cooperative tool such as Git and Gitlab, without having to abandon the application or use another tool for that purpose. Definitely, it is a nice and complete tool that facilitates the life of the programmer and increases the productivity of the programmer for the benefit of the company.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Atom allowed developers to better organize the code, since it is structured in a project consisting of a folder, which facilitates access to programs by the programmer who owns the code and is easy to locate for another programmer who inherits the responsibility to administer said code. It also made life easier for novice programmers who were learning and developing in Codeigniter, as this editor offers a very good online help of the language with which it is being developed. Also the variety of documentation and videos on how to use the editor, facilitated the apprenticeship and use of the application

"Atom Text Editor Review"

What do you like best?

I have been working with Atom for sometime now and I have no regrets. Atom comes in handy with its endless customization. I guess it is because it was developed purely with developer at the center.

It has limitless packages that helps one extend its features to his/her liking or preference.

Atom is developed and supported by the GitHub. Who doesn't love GitHub.

What do you dislike?

I guess the only aspect of Atom that pulls it down is its learning curve. One may need to spend a few more hours to learn it but the moment you learn it, you won't go anywhere.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For those who are looking to customize their editor easily, and beyond what others provide, then to you Atom is a greatest tool you can have. As a web developer, the freedom to tweak, add, and extend your editor gives an incredible feeling of power.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using Atom editor for developing application in PHP Applications in Codeigniter. It helped me a lot in developing the applications faster and better way. Its code wrapping and auto-complete features help in rapid development and limited errors in the applications.

"Atom"

What do you like best?

I like the Atom text editor because it is cross-platform, compatible with Mac, Windows and Linux. Among the attractions of this editor I can point out:

1.-Free software which allows to minimize development costs.

2.-Lightweight and fast installation, ideal for those who use the linux operating system.

3.- Compatible GitHub, Javascript, HTML, C ++, Python, PHP, CSS, among others.

4.-Friendly interface and attractive and modern design.

5.- The projects developed in Atom are synchronized with the Git repository, because this software was developed by members of the GitHub community.

What do you dislike?

My experience with Atom is just beginning in the field of web development and I have observed that one of the problems is performance, to navigate between the tabs or when opening a file the response time is more than expected especially in the case of finding us in full development task this makes ideas disappear.

It cost me a bit to adapt to work with it, despite its friendly interface where it centralizes its functionalities and resources. The installation of pluggins was a little complicated, I think it obeyed my little experience with this software.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend it because despite some details that I mention regarding what I do not like, it is a good tool that provides ease to the web developer.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my country Venezuela, the government decreed the use of Free Software for public administration, which is why, in compliance with this decree, the use of Adobe Dreamweaver was replaced by the use of Atom and Sublime Text. allowing free choice while the software to be used is open source.

"Good text editor for developing web application"

What do you like best?

One of the best and fast text editor for developing any javascript frameworks especially in NodeJS. It gives very good amount of features by just installing plugins. It has a vast amount of plugins which helped me in developing the application much faster and better way. It has a in-built support of Git version control system which can be very useful as you don't need any extra Git client software to execute their commands.

What do you dislike?

Even though it has lots of plugins, sometimes it becomes difficult to find the right kind of plugin which will help you. Apart from this, there is nothing much which I don't like about it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to develop application using javascript especially in NodeJS and you are not sure which IDE/editor to use then this is the best editor to start with. It is very easy to use and get used to it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using this editor for developing application in NodeJS. It helped me a lot in developing the application faster and better way.

"It's more than an editor"

What do you like best?

The best thing which I like about is that even if it is a text editor, it gives good amount of features which an IDE can give by simply installing packages. It has wide array of packages which helps me in developing the application much more better way. Another important thing which is very useful for any developer or organization is that it has a very good support of Git version control system. You can easily execute Git commands very easily through Atom only.

What do you dislike?

If your project has large amount of files then it takes a lot of time and memory to load those files in the editor. Apart from that, it doesn't have good support for languages like Java and C++. It doesn't have proper debugging tool as well which is very essential for any developer.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend to everyone who wants all-in-one features like text editing and application development in Nodejs. This is the best text editor available for JS development.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was new to Nodejs and wasn't sure that which IDE to use. Atom helped me in developing my application in Nodejs, much faster without even using any specialized IDE. It has very very good support of it.

"Atom, ein großartiger Open-Source-Editor"

What do you like best?

Was uns an Atom am besten gefallen hat, war, dass es ein Editor war, dem wir vertrauen konnten, da der Code Open Source ist und von den Erstellern von GitHub angeboten wird. Auch Atom ist ein Texteditor (obwohl er auch als IDE bezeichnet werden kann), sehr mächtig und leicht.

Wir verwenden Atom zum Programmieren, Bearbeiten einfacher Textdateien oder Einstellungen und es funktioniert immer wie erwartet. Optisch gefällt es dem Auge und ich persönlich lasse das Thema standardmäßig als Standard.

Mehr über Atom:

- Es ist sehr hackbar, Sie können praktisch alles vom Editor aus ändern, von etwas Einfachem, um es wie ein völlig anderes Programm aussehen zu lassen.

- Gute Standardthemen

- Unterstützt viele Programmiersprachen

- Verfügbar in Windows, Linux oder Mac

- Verwalten Sie große Dateien sehr gut (wo Editoren die App sonst einfrieren könnten)

What do you dislike?

Ich möchte, dass es etwas weniger RAM verbraucht, aber in einem Editor, der so viele Dinge enthält, ist es verständlich, dass er viel RAM verwendet

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Wir empfehlen die Verwendung von Atom, wenn Sie nach einem Texteditor suchen, der leistungsfähig ist, eine große Anzahl von Programmiersprachen unterstützt und Open Source und kostenlos ist. Ich schlage auch vor, immer die neueste Version zu verwenden, da sie immer neue Funktionen hinzufügt.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Wir verwenden Atom für unsere Programmierprojekte und wir freuen uns, dass wir einen Editor benötigen, der die im Unternehmen verwendeten Programmiersprachen unterstützt, ohne dass zusätzliche Editoren installiert werden müssen. Mit Atom haben wir alles in einem. Darüber hinaus sparen wir Lizenzkosten, da diese kostenlos sind.

"Awesome text editor for Node development"

What do you like best?

The best thing which I like about this text editor is that you can use it for developing application in any javascript programming language like NodeJS. It has very good support of version control system like Git which helped me a lot because I don't have to use any other software for executing Git commands. Apart from it, it has wide array of open source packages which helped me in developing the application better way by installing it. I liked it's customized theming feature as well.

What do you dislike?

One thing I don't like about this text editor is that it doesn't have good debugging tool which is essential for the programmer. Moreover, if you have so many files are loaded then it takes some amount of time to load it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to develop the application in NodeJS and if you are not sure which IDE/editor to use then this is the best editor to start with. It will help you in developing the application faster and better way.

"Being free, a large textual content editor"

What do you like best?

- What I like the most is that it has a clean-looking design. The Atom editor is free and has many themes and packages for most of my needs. The best thing I like about this software is that it is free and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

- One of the projects written in Java that had slowed down a little Atom and its impact on the use of the CPU was something excessive, it must be an error because it has not happened to me with other projects or in other similar programming languages. Magnitude The color scheme is not the most pleasant and could be improved. You should have more color themes to customize the user interface

Recommendations to others considering the product:

- Its lightness and ease of use are its strengths. I recommend using Atom if you are looking for a simple editor but as powerful as any IDE, with no licensing costs and visually beautiful. Especially, I recommend using Atom if you are going to program or edit configuration files and you are looking for a lightweight and powerful editor with support for automatic completion.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- This makes it invaluable in a team environment. It's great to edit on the fly. It's great to edit on the fly.

"Siendo gratis, un gran editor de texto"

What do you like best?

Me gusta que esta aplicación facil de utilizar.

Me llevo mucho tiempo descubrir uno que funcionaba admirablemente con escenarios de Macintosh. Ademas, esta aplicación es demasiado ajustable, incluyendo los paquetes es realmente simple y asegura que usted obtiene todo lo que necesita y podria necesitar de una aplicación como esta.

What do you dislike?

Me gustaria que Atom tuviera mas soporte con telefonos moviles y quizas también en la web.

Algo diferente es que, en el caso de que introduzcas Atom, necesitas ahorrar cada uno de tus ajustes en una unidad, asi que en el caso de que cambies a otro PC, puedes cambiar cada uno de tus ajustes.

Seria ideal en el caso de que hicieran un marco en el que puedas unirte y que coincida con todos tus diferentes PCs Atom, como lo que hace Todoist con el ajuste de temas.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Intenta hacer algunos compromisos fundamentales para percibir como la aplicacion piensa sobre los IDEs convencionales cada vez mas confusos, y percibe la cantidad de la antigua utilidad como un soporte.

Tambien otra cosa que me gusta es que sea un software libre

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Usamos Atom para toda nuestra codificación.

En realidad, es facil de investigar y tiene una potencia absoluta, por lo que puede utilizarlo para trabajar mas comodo en su carrera.

El hecho de que todos los miembros de un equipo utilicen un editor de texto con los mismos paquetes y la misma configuracion significa que el codigo es coherente. Tambien es más facil guiar a alguien a traves de algo cuando esta familiarizado con el espacio de trabajo.

"Good editor for node development and general purpose"

What do you like best?

Best thing I like about this editor is you can share your workspace with your team member and they can collaborate on code in real time. It has been useful to me for one of my project. Another important feature Atom has is it's support for version control system like Git which helped me and my organizer to manage the code and also helped me execute the Git commands through Atom only. So that I do not have to use any external software. It has large amount of packages which gives more advance features and functionalities which I can use for the development.

What do you dislike?

It requires very high resources to run and that's why it freezes and hangs. If you have more number of files loaded into the editor then it takes a lot of time to load those files which is sometimes frustrating. It should also include some debugging tool which will be useful to the developers.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to develop the application in NodeJS and you are not sure which IDE/editor to use then this is the best editor available for it to start working on.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using this for developing the application in NodeJs. It helped me to develop the application faster and better way. And moreover it is very easy to use as well. Apart from that I am using it as a normal text editor as well.

"Best text/programming tool for Developers"

What do you like best?

ATOM is the most powerfull, intuitive and reliable tool i've ever use in my career as a programmer. Studying electronics, i was able to program my embedded systems from Atom in my MAC. Able to program Arduino, PIC, mbed and even STM products from Atom! Not only for electronics but for general programming in C++, Python, JS, etc.

What do you dislike?

It may be to heavy to support in some computers. The accuarcy to found the right add-on is not the best. it should have more colored themes to personalize the UI. In Windows, the UI seems bad thanks to the Windows upper bar "not yet supported" (?)

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Working with ATOM in macOS, i was able to create electronic solutions with STM products using MCU like the Cortex M4 to M0. Able to programm PIC chips and Arduino code from the same interface. Having all the tools from Web development, to IoT in the same program is the best thing ever.

"Gran herramienta para el desarrollo utilizando varios lenguajes de programación."

What do you like best?

Funciona en todas las plataformas, como Windows, Linux y Mac OS. Me gusta ATOM. Es un sencillo editor de texto que me permite organizar fácilmente mis archivos. Hay complementos para muchos idiomas diferentes y estilos de trabajo, para que pueda configurar a su gusto y antojo todo lo que necesite.

What do you dislike?

Encuentro que es mucho más lento que por ejemplo Sublime, las cosas simples como abrir una nueva ventana para un proyecto debe ser instantáneo y tristemente está muy lejos de serlo. Todo se trata de preferencias personales.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Sublime Text, VSCode, IntelliJ son alternativas, todas son prácticamente iguales y solo cambian según las preferencias personales. Vale la pena tomarse el tiempo para aprenderlos porque ayuda con la productividad. Muy liviano para adoptar y probar.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Es la forma más rápida para que cambiemos y construyamos nuestro sitio web. Cuenta con una función de autocompletado que le ahorra tiempo a los desarrolladores.

"The best lightweight code editor."

What do you like best?

I am using Atom as an application for creating simple text documents, especially for configuration and programming files in multiple languages. The application uses as a basis for its creation the programming language Electron, which provides a graphical interface very pleasing to the eye. Atom has a complete car adapted for each programming language so your suggestions are personalized and in most cases are very accurate and useful, which has a very large impact on the speed of programming.

Also in this editor it is possible to modify the internal code of the application to hack certain aspects of the program being able to customize Atom to an incredible level that can even result in a totally new application in the eyes of another person.

What do you dislike?

One of the projects written in Java that I had slowed down a little Atom and its impact on the use of CPU was something excessive, it must be a bug because it has not happened to me with other projects or in other languages of programming of similar magnitude. I also did not like that on certain occasions the use of RAM is somewhat greater than in other text editors, it could be related to the themes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend using this text editor because it is one of the best editors that exist, according to the preferences of each one, but it is definitely in the TOP 3 of the text editors. Especially I recommend using Atom if you are going to program or edit configuration files and you are looking for a light and powerful editor with support for auto completion.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was looking for a code editor that would help me to be more efficient and faster at work, with Atom I no longer need to create the documents and its base manually, since atom has templates for each language time, for example in php it adds the signs < ? at the beginning and at the end.

"Good text editor for web development"

What do you like best?

The best thing I like about Atom is that it has given support for version control system like Git which helps any organizer and developer to make the development in sync with other team members. Another important feature which I like is its packaging which gives ability to add additional features. Moreover it provides different theming and styling which is very cool.

What do you dislike?

It is bit heavy in performance. So it becomes slow while using it specifically when you have lots of files have been loaded into the editor. Apart from it, it doesn't have good debugging tool which you can find it from other text editors now a days.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to develop web application and if you want to use open source editor, then this editor is best suited for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using this for developing web application. Apart from it, I am using it as normal text editor.

"The best code editor so far."

What do you like best?

We have been using this application for 3 years and we are very content with the results. Thanks to the Atom autocomplete we can write the code faster than before because the suggestions are very accurate.

Technically the best of the application we could say that it is:

- Application developed by GitHub, so there is a lot of money to keep updating for a long time

- Constant updates that add new features and fix bugs

- Multi platform, I have used the application in Linux and it works perfectly, some of my colleagues use it in windows and what I have seen is exactly the same in their behavior.

- The quality of the themes by default is very good, one of the few applications to program that is pleasing to the eye and does not tire the eyes, especially the dark theme.

What do you dislike?

The only problem of Atom is that it is programmed in a language (electron) known to be a great consumer of resources, although the recently installed application does not present excessive consumption, as plugins are installed and modifying options, consumption increases. If your computer does not have a good CPU and enough RAM you may have problems to make the editor work.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The Atom application is highly recommended as a code editor regardless of the programming language or even if the goal is to edit common text files. It works very well in all areas and is highly recommended especially because it is endorsed by the GitHub foundation and its team, plus no extra license costs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In our company we are using Atom to a great extent to develop code in PHP (I include here HTML and CSS) and Java. So far it has worked very well since the difference of programming in atom to do it in a normal text editor is very noticeable since atom allows us to accelerate the programming process thanks to its autocomplete and other carecterisitcas as its Java documentation plugins .

"Atom! sehr anpassbarer Editor"

What do you like best?

Endlich ein Editor, der nicht nach einer sehr alten Benutzeroberfläche aussieht! Das Design ist sehr einfach und klar. Standardmäßig sieht es wirklich toll aus. Wir verwenden Atom zum Programmieren, Bearbeiten einfacher Textdateien oder Einstellungen und es funktioniert immer wie erwartet. Optisch gefällt es dem Auge und ich persönlich lasse das Thema standardmäßig als Standard.

- Wir haben es hauptsächlich für Java verwendet, aber es unterstützt HTML, PHP, JS, C ++ ...

- Autovervollständigung

- Sie können nicht nur das Aussehen und Verhalten anpassen, sondern auch eigene Plugins schreiben

- Große Community, die Atom mit Plugins unterstützt, Code-Verbesserungen vornimmt und sich gegenseitig hilft

- Frei und Open Source

- Linux-Unterstützung (ich schätze das besonders, weil ich ein Linux-Benutzer bin)

- Entwickelt von github

What do you dislike?

Im Vergleich zu anderen Editos ist zu viel RAM erforderlich. Dies kann ein Problem sein, wenn Sie über 4 - 8 Gb verfügen und andere Anwendungen im Hintergrund laufen, z. B. Browser, Musik oder Musik. Eines der Dinge, mit denen ich Probleme hatte, ist, dass Sie zwar Pakete hinzufügen können, aber manchmal ist es schwierig, eines zu finden, das genau das ist, was Sie brauchen.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Es ist perfekt, um Änderungen an kleinen Codeänderungen vorzunehmen oder Konfigurationsdateien zu ändern. Sie benötigen mehr als den einfachen Texteditor, den Ihr Betriebssystem standardmäßig bietet

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Manchmal müssen wir einige Fehler korrigieren oder etwas in unserem Code korrigieren, aber wir müssen kein Debugging oder erweiterte Funktionen durchführen. Daher machen wir es mit atom, da es schneller ist, als unsere IDE zu öffnen und warten, bis alles geladen ist. Überprüfen Sie das gesamte Projekt.

"No more IDE, just Atom!"

What do you like best?

I have been using IDE for a long time to program, IDEs are usually heavy, slow applications with high CPU and RAM consumption. Since I met Atom, 3 years ago, I have uninstalled all the IDEs of my system and I only use Atom, even outside the scope of programming, to edit any configuration file, now I use Atom.

Atom is the opposite of an IDE, it occupies little space, is light, stable, consumes few resources, is visually beautiful and does exactly the same as an IDE! I no longer only use Atom at work but also at home.

The best of atom:

- The interface on the contrary that many IDE is simple and visually very beautiful

- It allows to perform all the tasks that a programmer may need such as division by tabs, auto completion, syntax highlighting etc ...

- Multi platform support (At work I use Windows and at home Linux)

- Third party plugin support

- Everything is customizable in Atom

- You have a very important company like GitHub behind, working very hard and constantly getting updates.

- The application is open source and free

What do you dislike?

To say something, the only thing I did not like or miss at Atom is a console or debugger at the VisualCodeStudio level.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend using Atom if you are looking for a simple editor but as powerful as any IDE, with no licensing costs and visually beautiful.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For a long time working with different IDE we always had stability problems because they are very heavy and complicated applications that always give some problem, thanks to Atom we can do the same work in a simple and stable environment...

"Excellent code editor by Github team"

What do you like best?

We have been using Atom for years in the company and I personally use it almost since it first came onto the market and the progress of Atom thanks to the GitHub team has been enormous, it really shows that they are strongly committed to the product with constant updates and improvements.

The graphical interface of the application is one of the best I've seen in any other text editor with the exception of perhaps VsC (its only real competitor). It has several themes by default and many more through plugins, the default themes are excellent, especially the dark theme I love it because it does not bother your eyes when you are programming for hours every day.

Things that I also liked about Atom:

- It is programmed in electron and its consumption of CPU is very small (but RAM is high).

- Visually the theme of icons and fonts are very pleasing to the eye

- Advanced tabs support, you can place each window where you want the editor and it will adapt

- Atom is highly hackable, you can edit anything in the application and customize it according to your preferences

What do you dislike?

As I said before the CPU consumption is low but the consumption of RAM is somewhat excessive even with not very large projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend using Atom if you need a powerful and visually attractive editor without any licensing fees. Although it is not an IDE with Atom, you will be able to handle large projects without problems. I also recommend having 8GB of RAM if you usually have other applications in the background.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Atom we edit a large part of our programming projects for PHP and Java (except Android). The editor behaves very well and we like to use it also to edit configuration files, CSS or HTML.

"Atom, a great open source editor"

What do you like best?

What we liked most about Atom was that it was an editor that we could trust because its code is open source and offered by the creators of GitHub. Also Atom is a text editor (although it can also be called IDE) very powerful and lightweight.

We use Atom to program, edit simple text files or settings and it always works as expected from it. Visually it is pleasing to the eye and I personally like to leave the theme by default.

More about Atom:

- It is very hackable, you can change practically anything from the editor, from something simple to make it look like a totally different program.

- Good default themes

- Supports many programming languages

- Available in Windows, Linux or Mac

- Manage large files very well (where else editors may freeze the app)

What do you dislike?

I would like it to consume a little less RAM but in an editor that includes so many things it is understandable that it uses a lot of RAM

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We recommend using Atom if you are looking for a text editor that is powerful, supports a large number of programming languages and is open source and free.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Atom for our programming projects and we are delighted with the need for an editor that supports the programming languages we use in the company without the need to install additional editors, with Atom we have everything in one. In addition, we save the cost of licenses, because it is free.

- Free and open source

- Linux support (i specially value this because i am a linux user)

- Developed by github

What do you dislike?

It consumes a too much RAM compared to other editos and this can be a problem if you have 4 - 8 Gb and you have other applications running in background such a browser, ide, music ...

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Its perfect to make change on small code modifications or change config files and you need more than the simple text editor that your OS brings by default

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sometimes we need to fix some bug or correct something on our code but we do not need to debug or any advanced features so we do it with atom since is faster than open our IDE and wait until it loads everything, check the whole project ...

"For the price? Cant Beat it! "

What do you like best?

I like that this app is Mac friendly. It took a lot of searching to find one that worked well with mac platforms. Additionally, this app is super customizable, adding packages is really easy and makes sure you get all you need and could want out of an app like this.

What do you dislike?

One of the things that I have struggled with is although you can add packages it is sometimes hard to find one that is exactly what you need. Not to mention, if you find a good one it is developed by someone else and if you have issues with it is is sometimes hard to find the right forum to find a solution.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Like Many applications, this one takes some getting used to. There are great short cut keys and customizable aspects. It is worth taking the time to learn them because it helps with productivity.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One business problem that im solving is being able to connect remotely to multiple host packages and many Ftps with ease. This layout makes it really simple to switch in-between and the autofill makes writing code go much smoother and not to mention faster which is a great benefit.

"Free and open source text editor, Great for data science project"

What do you like best?

it is completely free so you no need to worry about pricing. It is developed by GitHub, so you can easily publish your code into GitHub. we can install third-party packages to customize its features and looks.

It is a great selection for a data science project, good consistency for R and Python programming languages.it also support other languages like Java, JavaScript, JSON, SQL. Atom has default packages to syntax highlighting for these languages, you no need to install any other package.

It has an active huge community, so if you have any dought and issue you can simply post it to the community and you will get a quick response. I is best for small and mediam size projects.

What do you dislike?

I could not found it very suitable for large and dynamic projects. I feel it is little slowler than other text editors.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would strongly recommend the Atom. It is the best choice for Data science and web development projects.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I develop a business solution for Data analysis.there are several financial reports which needs to be published every week. changes are very frequent in these reports to make several changes into these files was very for me.

I developed these reports in a python programming language with the help of Atom text editor. I wrote my complete code in Atom. it is very easy to navigate to project hierarchy and management.

also very easy to execute different report directly from Atom.

"Atom, the best code editor!"

What do you like best?

What I like the best about Atom is that Atom is open source, so there's the flexibility of installing themes and plugins to fit you as a programmer or coder. Atom is also a big supporter of Github so, Atom comes in built with Git panel, where you can manage the commits and push's to the repo as well as change branches, all within Atom.

What do you dislike?

I'd wish that Atom would have more of a cross platform with mobile devices and maybe also on the web. Something else is that, if you install Atom, you have to save all your settings in a drive so if you switch to another computer, you can have all your settings switched over. Would be best if they created a system where you can sign up and it syncs with all your other computers Atom, similar to what Todoist does with syncing themes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You will need time to get use to using Atom as well as reserve time to built your own workflow through Atom, installing plugins, themes and customizing everything; just like you would when you move into a house. But after you finish that, everything else is pretty easy, you can edit a file from terminal by typing: atom file.html and it will open in atom.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem I was solving was that, there is a lot of software for coding / programming, however, it costed money and didn't offer much flexibility with the themes and what I can install with the program. With Atom, I am able to install plugins that Atom themselves made, but also the community has made; for example, there is a plugin to have Terminal built in Atom and access it through a simple keystroke as well as adding live reload, make a server, you can even create your own to work with your workflow. It's all customizable so you can edit how you want it to look like and the fonts you want the editor to use.
