I will show you the most valuable packages for me. And I show you how to install Atom
Atom is the IDE developed by GitHub and it is completely hackable which means you can customize it as you want. I use Atom for programming for more than two years.
A “hackable text editor for the 21st century”
Since I have just installed my default laptop again with Parrot Security OS, one of the first things I always do is install an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) or text editor. Over the years I have tried many other IDE, such as Pycharm, Geany, Sublime and others.
Besides Vim (which I often use for small things) especially when it comes to the terminal. Atom is my main, and for the time being I don’t see why I should change.
Some reasons why I like Atom:
- Easy extensibility
- Cross-platform editing
- Find and replace
- Built-in package manager
- “Smart auto completion”
- Built-in file browser
- Multi-pane viewing
- Customize styling with your own CSS/LESS
In this video, I’ll show you how to install Atom, and which packages are my favorites.
I must say that I left Linter because I have a love-hate relationship with it. It shows you errors in your script. But also mistakes if, for example, you made a space too much at the end of the line. Of course I leave the choice to you 😃
