I’m a big fan of Atom Editor. In a previous post I have discussed about the editors I use for day to day developement.
Atom is advertised as a hackable editor and It truly is. When you see a missing feature, you can very easily find a plugin for it. The plugins makes atom so great because you can customize the editor entirely for your needs.
Here I’m going list all the plugins I find useful with Atom. Hope this helps you guys as well.
Language Babel: Enhanced ES6 Syntax highlighting.
React: React syntax highlighting.
Docblockr: Write docs faster.
Atom Beautifier: Auto formats the code.
File Icons: Adds icons according to the file type in the file explorer pane. Makes spotting files so easy.
Minimap: Stylish mini code map near the scroll bar. Usefull and cool looking.
Sublime Style Column Selection: Select text acorss multiple lines like a pro. Sublime style.
Tool bar almighty: Very handy toolbar with frequently used features.
Highlight Selected: Highlights the same word in the document.
Minimap Highlight Selected: Same as above but highlight the same words in the minimap.
Autocomplete Paths: If you are doing NodeJs developement or working with ES6 Modules, It would be a pain to figure out the folder hierarchy. This plugin is a god sent in such places.
