Github’s Atom Editor tried out


I’ve tried out Github’s Atom Editor shortly and I must say, they’ve come up with a pretty cool thing.

If you want to try it out, drop a comment, got 3 invites. At the moment only for Mac OS.

Here a couple of screenshots, thanks to Mikkel for providing hardware so I could try it out 😉


The welcome screen shows some general info and a small disclaimer.


MarkDown Preview ships with atom!


The configuration is saved in a file so you easily can synchronize it to other machines


The keybindings can be altered quite extensively


There’s a vim mode plugin already


The settings tab looks a little rough, but it’s functional


Themes can be written in LESS, which is awesome.
