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.
