Atom is the next generation text editor for coders from Github. Github is making the editor for past six years and now the new editor is in the beta. It is available in an invite-only programme for beta testers.
The Development of the editor began as an experiement and it became a good tool for coders. The good news is Atom is completely open source and github is calling developers to fork and extend as much as they want. This is a “hacktable text editor for the 21st Centruy”.
Atom is in closed beta for Mac users right now (with Windows and Linux builds coming soon), but invites will be given out to those who sign up on the website over the next few weeks as the beta is expanded.
