Overall Satisfaction with Atom

We are using this software throughout the systems department of our organization. It is totally free software so it means a significant saving of money when it comes to paying software licenses. Atom is very versatile and adapts to everything since it has a number of downloadable packages that increase the functions that come by default.
  • Supports a large number of programming languages.
  • It has a large number of packages that increase functionality.
  • Has integration with Git. Projects are automatically synchronized with the Git repository.
  • It is very customizable. You can change all styles of editor jobs.
  • It's heavy. The initial load of the software can take a long time.
  • When you open a file or navigate between the different tabs, the reaction time may be a bit longer than expected.
  • If you have a computer with few resources then I would not recommend it.
  • Atom supposes a significant saving of money in the initial investment since it is totally free. It is compatible with Mac and Windows, so compatibility is guaranteed.
  • It has a lot of potential and makes the work of the web developer much easier. This translates into profits since the projects are carried out in less time.
  • Atom is open source and fulfills everything it promises. It is a highly recommended and full-featured editor.
Previously we used Sublime Text but we have changed to Atom because it is open source and has more packages that can be installed. In this way, we saved the money we were paying in licenses and we have invested in improving the hardware of each of the computers in our office.
Atom is one of the best existing code editors on the market. It is very appropriate for any freelance developer or company since it is totally free. I would not recommend it for computers with low RAM, in this case, Atom can be a bit stressful. But in most cases, Atom has an unmatched performance.
