Announce - pythonic-atom


#1

pythonic atom is a collection of packages & settings in order to make the most of Github’s Atom Text Editor while writing python.

https://atom.io/packages/pythonic-atom

Please provide feedback or maybe any python featured package that you want to include.


#2

Nice start :slight_smile:, I’ll give it a try. I say “start” because i can imagine a lot of added stuff to make the parts work together more smoothly, add helpful (and optional) key settings, etc.


#3

Indeed, this is my first atom package :slight_smile:
Currently pythonic-atom, installs some python (pip) & atom (apm) packages and sets some settings suitable for python development. (4 spaces according to pep etc)
Any ideas are welcome.


#4

The package is advertised as setting settings that are suitable for Python, but what it actually does is enforce those settings under "*", not ".source.python". If you intend to have the global settings overridden, you should communicate that. If you didn’t intend to override global settings, you’re accidentally sending out false advertising.


#5

Thanks for the feedback,

This is true it’s under * and on the other hand i disable language-python and enable MagicPython which has 4 spaces already by default.
So the tab length does not make much sense, but the invisibles and indentation guide does.

I will see if i can enable invisibles & indentation guide only for python files, hopefully in the next release. :slight_smile:
