As you might have heard GitHub is working on a Text Editor based on Web Technologies. It’s called Atom. They justed started the beta period and I managed to get an invite.
It’s definitely inspired by Sublime Text which is perfect for me because I feel right at home and a lot of the shortcuts that are ingrained in my brain just work. So far the app runs smooth and I like it. Sure, there are issues and things missing, but it’s a Beta build after all. So I’m looking forward to it’s future. There are already some packages like Emmet or Zen Coding and Syntax Themes are starting to emerge. So I thought I should convert one of my favourite Themes, the Espresso Soda, over to Atom since it’s very easy to do with the converter tool GitHub provides.
