Atom is a free, cross-platform, and open-source graphical software that has been designed from the ground up to act as a hackable text editor and programmer's editor application that helps any aspiring developer to write code without too much hassle.

Being build on the Electron framework, an open-source and cross-platform solution that lets developers create modern desktop apps using state-of-the-art Web technologies like HTML5, CSS, Node.js, and JavaScript, Atom offers a powerful, customizable, and extendable user interface.

Features at a glance

Prominent features of Atom include cross-platform editing, which means that you can use it on your favorite operating system, no matter if it's a GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, or Microsoft Windows, and a built-in package manager that allows developers to search and install packages from within the app, or even create new ones.

Another interesting feature of Atom is called "smart autocompletion" and it will help you write code faster than ever before. The application also comes with a built-in file system browser so you can easily locate your projects and start coding immediately, as well as multiple panes for comparing and editing code across several files.

The find and replace functionality could not be overlooked, as Atom lets users find, replace, or preview text in the application as they type in a single file or across multiple one from a big project. You can even find and replace text from files across all of your projects.
