What is Atom?
At GitHub, we're building the text editor we've always wanted. A tool you can customize to do anything, but also use productively on the first day without ever touching a config file. Atom is modern, approachable, and hackable to the core. We can't wait to see what you build with it.
What is Vim?
Vim is an advanced text editor that seeks to provide the power of the de-facto Unix editor 'Vi', with a more complete feature set. Vim is a highly configurable text editor built to enable efficient text editing. It is an improved version of the vi editor distributed with most UNIX systems. Vim is distributed free as charityware.

An interesting and early look at a new tools platform
February 28, 2014 17:59
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
March 02, 2014 04:12
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:
Full Stack IDE

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.
Hackable but slow

It is truly a hackable editor but along with that it's very slow and takes lots of memory.

I use Atom because it eclipses SublimeText in usability, visual appeal and support for useful coding extensions.
Hushed uses Atom
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.
jflynn33 uses Atom
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 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.

We are using Atom on many of our workstations to be able to have a configurable editor available. It's also provisioned to our Remote Desktops to be able to work with the same tools available as on the Workstations.

저는 코딩할 때 빔을 사용합니다. 이젠 많은 단축키에 익숙해졌고, 다양한 플러그인을 설치해두어서 다른 편집기로 타이핑을 하면 약간 어색하기도 합니다.
rkdgusrnrlrl uses Vim
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.
