Atom

Build Status Dependency Status Join the Atom Community on Slack

Atom is a hackable text editor for the 21st century, built on Electron, and based on everything we love about our favorite editors. We designed it to be deeply customizable, but still approachable using the default configuration.

Visit atom.io to learn more or visit the Atom forum.

Follow @AtomEditor on Twitter for important announcements.
