Overall Satisfaction with Atom
Since I am a semi-professional freelancer, Atom is very useful in my exploits in interactive web development. The packages that can be added onto the IDE are very useful, they save time, assist in code structure and development. packages such as HTML Preview help save time between tests as it capture whatever changes I make to the code and displays it in real time, Text Select is another that identifies text of the same name when clicked upon so I can debug my code much more efficiently if need be, Emmit is another that enable short-hand coding which also saves time in terms of tag creations. These a but o few of packages that Atom has to offer to make web development much more efficient and flexible for developers.
- Real-time code previewing.
- Word selection highlights.
- Shorthand coding.
- In terms of processing, if too many packages installed it tends to slow the PC.
- Should also branch out to other languages in terms of ease of use and flexibility.
- Visual Studio IDE
Easy to use. doesn't require registration or activation, you can use right after installation. has the option of packages to give the IDE more dynamics in terms of development and debugging. Its flexibility just gives it that edge over other IDE's.
Definitely well suited if you are a freelancing web developer or student because it is free and is open source. Its ease of use and various functionality, depending on packages, is very helpful for beginners and even experts. it is well suited for any task big or small as long as you have the drive and desire to create.
