Atom is a text editor that's modern, approachable, yet hackable to the core—a tool you can customize to do anything but also use productively without ever touching a config file. Atom comes pre-installed with four UI and eight syntax themes in both dark and light colors. If you can't find what you're looking for, you can also install themes created by the Atom community or create your own.
Atom helps you write code faster with a smart, flexible autocomplete. Easily browse and open a single file, a whole project, or multiple projects in one window.
Version 1.15.0 notable changes:
- Duplicate selections with multiple lines now behaves in a more intuitive way.
- Added a core option for closing deleted file tabs, while the default remains keeping these tabs open to prevent potentially losing data.
- Show cursor by default on MacOS.
- Disable periodic serialization for large buffers to improve performance when editing large files.
- Remove projects correctly from the Windows jump list.
- Node 6 is now required to build Atom.
- Always reserve horizontal space for two digits on the line number gutter to prevent UI jitter when transitioning from 9 lines to 10 lines.
- Add a setting to apply the Chromium proxy configuration to apm via env vars.
- Show the default value in a tooltip when one is present in the settings view.
