I have recently moved over to Atom from Brackets. I didn’t want to change IDEs but Brackets doesn’t play well with ReactJS (I talk about that a little more in my Beginners Guide to React).
When I was using Brackets I had it set up the way I thought was perfect. A number of plugins to allow me to add a section of HTML with the press of a key, or auto-correct on a function when I typed in incorrectly in my sleepy stupor. Upon finding myself in a new program, I wanted to replicate that set up. Turns out that was possible!
Here is my current (and probably about to grow) setup in Atom.
Base16 Torromow Dark
Although this is installed as standard with Atom, god I love it. Slightly darker than the theme I was using with Brackets, and a lot nicer on the eyes.
This goes without saying. It allows dynamic snippets, speedy coding and is customizable.
Rather than having boring grey default icons, this packaged added a bit of colour, and made it easy to see what I was working on. A worthy addition.
Autocomplete support for WordPress actions and filters in the Atom editor. A massive help when in the zone.
Designed to make writing documentation faster and easier. Use standard documentation formatting, this just helps you along.
Autocomplete+ Paths Suggestions
Adds path autocompletion to autocomplete+ depending on scope and prefix. Supports custom scopes defined by the user.
I am always looking to make my workflow faster, and easier so if you can suggest any other great Atom packages, stick it in the comments!
