Recommended Atom packages
I switched to Atom as my main editor about a year ago. While its memory footprint is substantially bigger than Chocolat’s, it’s also much richer in terms of features and 3rd party support without some of the issues that made me leave Sublime Text for that in the first place.
Here’s a selection of the more interesting 3rd party packages that I currently use.
Minimap - A preview of the full source code.
Pigments - A package to display colors in project and files.
File Icons - Assign file extension icons and colors for improved visual grepping.
Tree View Git Status - Show the Git repository status in the Atom tree-view.
Git History - self-explanatory.
Linters / formatters
Linter - Base linter.
linter-rubocop - Lint Ruby on the fly using rubocop.
Pretty JSON - Take a wild guess.
React - React language support.
Transform - collection of useful text transformation macros.
Windows Carriage Return Remover - Remove annoying Windows carriage returns.
Project Manager - project switcher.
Ruby / Rails
Rails Transporter - Open related Rails files depending on current context.
Rails Snippets - Useful ROR snippets.
