Edit a zip file without having to close atom to apply/save it #support


When I edit a file which is zipped (using 7zip), the file open as expected on atom. I can edit and save the file in atom, but it doesnt save the zipped file. It probably only save a temp (it’s the same for notepad++ : this doesn’t edit the zip file).
I need to close atom for the change to take effect. Then a popup from 7zip asks me if I accept the change.

(It wasn’t a problem with notepad++, but atom takes 3-4 mn to reopen.)


Looks like there’s an existing request for this here:
