I’m a Sublime user trying out Atom and I’m having a hard time choosing which editor to go for based on a couple of features. I feel that there’s at least one feature in each editor, that the other doesn’t have that I don’t feel I can do without.
Atom has brilliant and seamless Git integration, particularly the colouring of sidebar items to display commit status. After a little research I have found that Sublime’s API allows very minimal, if any interaction with the sidebar, hence why there are no plugins/packages available that are able to colour it to display commit status.
Sublime has fantastic auto-completion. Symbols such as
$aVeryLongVariableNamecan be found by simply typing $avl (Typing characters that appear in the symbol) whereas in Atom you would need to type
$averyl(Can’t skip characters).
I’d be totally content switching to Atom if I could find auto-complete functionality that could compete with Sublime’s, particularly in the case of
$aVeryLongVariableName being suggested by typing
So I guess, my question here is, does anyone know of any Atom software/packages that are able to offer similar auto-complete functionality?
