But there has to be something newer, I’ve tried sublime and I’ve tried slickedit, but I was looking for something more new age. What the heck, I saw Dean ask on Facebook and atom came up quite a lot, so now I’m trying to figure out how to use it. First some great things:
atom foo.txtactually works from the command line. Seems like a small thing, but nice to CMD-W and then get back to the terminal window. Turns out that like Emacs and other modeless editors, Atom does have some big keys like CTRL-SHIFT-W to select a word, so eventually I’ll memorize those instead of
- There is a vim mode so I can still use my favorite keys, although you still can’t those fancy
g/test/s//foo/gcommands at least I haven’t found out how. I normally do this way more than graphical edits.
- They have a zillion packages and a nice
apmmodeled after npm to manage it.
