open-in-atom

Open a file in Atom from the terminal without lag 🏎️

This package lets you open files from the command line. Atom already lets you do this with their atom CLI helper, but this one is freaking instantaneously fast.

open-in-atom

Installation

Install open-in-atom-cli bin using npm or yarn:

npm install -g open-in-atom-cli
yarn global add open-in-atom-cli

(Alternatively, you can just copy the shell script open-in-atom to your PATH.)

Then install the companion Atom package, open-in-atom-pkg:

apm install open-in-atom-pkg

Usage

Use open-in-atom <file> in your terminal. It will open your files instantly, instead of waiting 5 seconds for the official Atom CLI.

# Open a file
open-in-atom README.md

# Open a directory
open-in-atom .

# Open a directory and some files under it
open-in-atom . README.md package.json

Using with other apps

You can set atom-open as your EDITOR for some apps. Here it is working with ranger (eg, EDITOR=open-in-atom ranger):

open-in-atom-ranger
