Github just released a beta version of their new editor Atom, and i must say it looks good.
It has a very clean user interface, and i must say i like what i see.
The editor is highly flexible with loads of packages you can download. A package can be a theme for the editor or new features and functions. A couple of packages highlighted on the atom.io site:
Another small feature i like is that if your working on files inside a git repository, it displays the current branch, and how many lines changed from whats currently in git.
The editor also have a shortcut
cmd+shift+p which opens a search-form that allows you to search in every function available.
For example if your writing markdown you can search for a function that gives you a preview:
My impression so far
I like the possibilities and that there are lots of customization and plugins for it. The one thing i miss most from Coda is the built-in SFTP-file manager, i love being able to open remote files from inside the editor and not have to use another program for that.
I don’t think it has any killer features that would instantly make me switch from Coda, but it’s a great editor and i will absolutely recommend it, you can apply for beta access at Atom.io.
