eclipse vs atom IDE. what are the differences?
If you want to do heavy development, you might want to consider Eclipse. If flexibility is valuable, though, Atom can be anything you want it to be. Eclipse is always going to be itself.
I’ve also created a FAQ for the general question:
Eclipse also has tons of plug-ins (see eclipse market place) can be customised/packaged for many different development environments and has been used as a base for a large number of applications (check Wikipedia ‘Eclipse-based software’ for an incomplete list).
Can you completely remove all of the parts that deal with code and use Eclipse as journaling software?
