Which editor to use

Atom

"A hackable text editor for the 21st Century". https://atom.io/

Installation:

$ sudo apt install atom

Make sure to define a "project" by selecting File ‣ Add project folder....

Some useful keyboard shortcuts:

  • Ctrl+P open an existing file using fuzzy file name search within all files of the project.

  • Shfit+Ctrl+F find (and optionally replace) a text string in all files (or in some)

  • Alt+Q reflow selection

Useful packages to install:

  • tidy-tabs causes Atom to close tabs that you haven't visited for some time. Useful because otherwise Atom can become a memory waster.
