Surprise editor - Atom

Posted at — Nov 6, 2014

I have not been much of a fan of Atom but as I’m feeling nostalgic for the days when I used TurboPascal for everything I was writing … Atom and it’s Go-Plus and Git-Plus packages are starting to fill the void. It’s far from complete but it feels almost as good.It’s safe to compare Atom to a mythical TurboGolang. (sadly it’s not the same TurboPascal that I saw on youtube. Those are many years after.  You can tell because the text IDE implemented pseudo windows. Sadly there are no Google images either.)I wonder if I could fork Atom and make a Go - only environment? The license is very liberal.PS: the emerald syntax theme makes me feel good.  All someone needs to do is add a yellow.
