It seems that atom is losing momentum for a while , it still very very active but not as active as it used to be before.
Part of it is due to project become maturing ?
But at electron front it have huge momentum (as electron is a lot more viable for business?)
Below is the comparison of development paces of atom ,vscode, nuclide and electron.
Atom is losing momentum since April. Is github restructuring and management redirection effecting Atom?
Microsoft seems to be very very passionate on VSCode, it is a shame that it is not a fork of atom, only a few atom features are used , and not possible to merge with atom at all.
Facebook is also very very passionate with their Nuclide , and advancement of React seems to contributing very well. Plus side is it brings mercurial integration and many nice stuff to atom.
It seems that all development efforts are now in Electron. Due to the rise of interest in commercial applications . It seems that development direction is shifting to Electron.
Weather focus for atom, stormy days ahead?
