Clickable Button/Text overlay in Atom (plugin development)


Hi there!

I’m a newbie when it comes to Atom development and am trying to accomplish something in particular: I’d like to list a series of buttons/text in a div that can allow event handling when clicked. These buttons or text are to be positioned at the very bottom of the screen and will overlay on top of the code that’s in the editor. Any ideas on how I can accomplish this?


If you mean something like the find-and-replace panel, then you can use the Panel API. If you mean actually overlaying the text editor itself in some sort of floating way, then you may want to look at how the autocomplete-plus package does it.


Thank you! I’ll check those out!
