Best advice to use Git in Atom Editor


#1

Hi, I’m new to Atom. I migrated from Webstorm recently and had problems with git. How do I use Git in Atom conveniently ? What plugin do you recommend ?

There are many issues that I face when trying to integrate Git to my project in Atom. I use git-control but so far I can’t make it work with remote git repository (such as Bitbucket or Github).
How to store my username & password to Atom editor ? How to deal with conflicting files in Atom?, is there a merging window plugin where you can compare both version of the file side-by-side?

There are bunches of Git packages for Atom. You can find people’s thoughts on many of them in various topics in the forum:
