Atom vs Visual Studio Code: Features and Comparison


Hello, folks. I wrote a post with review and comparison Atom vs Visual Studio Code. Which features of Visual Studio Code look good for you and don’t have alternative in Atom? Arguments from the VSC users is very liked.


Scope is very different. At least at the start. VS code was made as part o the effort to make 5 more popular, open source and cross-platform. VS code is good at the web and very performant for that precise scope. Atom is good at being a general purpose editor, built arround extensibility.

I hope with the future that distinction will blur: Atom should gain performance and VSC gain, extensibility and package ecosystem…
