Overview
TL;DR

Atom.io > Sublime > Notepad++ > Cloud9 IDE

Grab it today because it's 100% free!

A few years ago in my review of Notepad++ I said it was the ultimate non IDE code editor. As a long time Notepad++ user I can say this: I never thought I would leave it behind forever!

I want to give a huge thank you to the people at github and the people behind the plugins for Atom.io.

Atom.io is all the best from Notepad++, Sublime, and Cloud9 IDE.

It’s easy to install, portable, and awesome!

My favorite features: (Some via plugins)

  • SSH File Browser
  • CSS Hex Colors applied in editor (Awesome for CSS hacking)
  • Mini Code Quick Scroll Pane
  • Multi Line editing

Lots more, and I wish I had time to go into more detail here. I will create a Youtube tutorial soon on how to quickly get started with Atom.io
