C# Support Optional

The Atomic Editor integrates with Visual Studio, Visual Studio for Mac, and MonoDevelop to provide a first class editing, debugging, and deployment experience on desktop and mobile platforms. Install the IDE for your platform to enable C# scripting support.

License Agreement & Registration

On the initial run, the editor will confirm licensing terms and provide registration for a new Atomic Community ID or to enter an existing one.

During registration you can optionally sign up for updates and anonymous editor usage metrics. Registration is a spam free zone with no information being shared and only notification of significant updates.
