I use atom in every bit of programming from markup, styling to customised autocomplete for python and JS. Nuclide theme is an awesome tool for React Native which is light version of both Android Studio and XCode.
An interesting and early look at a new tools platform

Atom is clearly an early look at a new code editor and much work remains to be done to produce a good community, a wide array of plugins as well as improving upon the performance of the product.
That aside, GitHub clearly cares about this product and is working hard to produce something that may well be great. Feedback has been responded to promptly and updates are rolling out to address issues.
The process of producing and publishing plugins is very smooth with a good set of tools to assist in the progress. Documentation is still in progress.
There are still performance problems with larger files and really large files can't be loaded at all. However, this is still a beta, so it remains to be seen what happens here.
A very flexible, semi-native code editor for web technologies

Atom is Github's text editor, at the time of this writing it's still in private beta.
It uses Chromium Embedded at it's core, and integrates with node.js. It provides easy access to extensibility features, including an autocompletion API.
Everything you see in your editor window is in a DOM. This is akin to Codemirror or Ace. Meaning you get both the benefit of debugging your extensions with a webkit console, and the harm of having dom overhead everywhere in your text buffer.
Since the main editor is essentially a browser, you can also preview html directly in the same window. At the time of this writing you can live preview your markdown like with other markdown editors based on similar technology. Currently it's not possible to preview other html pages in there, but it's likely that this is in the works.
Ambitious project bogged down by an ill-advised tech stack.

Atom is a great editor that feels very familiar if you're used to Sublime Text. The UI is almost copied verbatim and you will feel right at home.
It comes with a package manager built right into the system, with plugins as a first class citizen.
All of this greatness comes to a screeching halt though:
We use Sublime Text in our screencasts, because it's clean and many new developers love it.
Armed with Anaconda plugin and Seti theme, Sublime Text is a great environment to work on Python projects.
We found Sublime Text as the best text editor on the web. It's fast, reliable, cheap and have tons of extensions available with a big supportive community.
Modify and commit posts using the Git plug-in without ever switching windows.
It's simple and very malleable. You can use it anywhere. You can customise it to behave as you want it to behave, look as you want it to look. And you can use it on any desktop operating system.

my go to editor for all things. been a vimer for over a decade now. this is where all the magic happens. still so much to learn, the most amazing tool i use.
cli 환경에 익숙 해지지 위해 리눅스를 자주 쓰려고 했는데, 많이들 추천 하는 에디터가 vim 이 였다. 맨 처음에는 불편했는데, 플러그인 다는 재미가 솔솔 했다. 결국 플러그인도 많이 안쓰게 되더라...vim 자체를 잘 안쓰게 되는 거 일지도, 항상 잘하고 싶지만 잘 안쓰게 되는 에디터 인것 같다.
Vim lets me edit the Markdown content of the Hugo powered site with ease. The low bandwidth needs means I can remote in and get changes updated without issues.
Our developers use Vim, which is great for remote pair programming. We even have a server—Bruizer—set up to host shared terminal sessions.
Atom is the main IDE/Text Editor that I use for ImmaGuess. It's easy to use and the community packages you can get are super helpful.
Have gone from TextMate to Sublime and now to Atom - in love with it - it's open source, it's got a massive contributor community, and it works well. (A bit slow and bogged down with lots of files, but we'll all make it faster over time)
Atom is an awesome editor, fast to launch (from the shell for any directory or per project), great features and plugins for almost anything the heart desires. The only thing missing are Jetbrain's great tools for refactoring.
I use Atom because it eclipses SublimeText in usability, visual appeal and support for useful coding extensions.
My primary Text Editor. Custom snippets help cut down on boiler plate and keep my work flow efficient.
My main code editor for everything not iOS, including Ghost themes, swift frameworks, etc.
We built Atom, and continue to build it with a group of outstanding open source contributors.
