Atom.io: is this microphone on?

1 minute to read

Atom.io 1.0 was announced this week, so I decided to install it and play around. It promises to be a cross-platform editor based on web technologies: it uses Chromium to do its rendering. Supposedly you can write plugins in Javascript using HTML/CSS, which sure as heck sounds awesome.

I can’t say much more, though. The first step in pretty much every “create your first Atom package” tutorial is to use a package called package-generator to generate the skeleton of your package. Unfortunately, package-generator currently has a crippling bug that completely prevents it from working. Even more discouraging is the fact that the bug’s been filed for five days without any visible progress.

Not impressed so far, Atom.
