I’m coming from Emacs and I’m trying to fill in the basics I’m accustomed to. One feature which I can’t find in Atom is what in the Emacs world is called bookmarks. (The Atom bookmarks package does something related but it’s more limited.) With bookmarks you can bookmark a file. Emacs remembers the file as well as your location in the file the last time you opened it, but the important thing is that you can open a file with just a few keystrokes, using an assigned nickname. For instance, a file
could be assigned the nickname pvnp. Then to load it, you don’t need to navigate to it in the file system. You just type C-xrb and you are prompted for the nickname. You type pvnp (and there’s completion) and it loads the file.
I use this useful feature constantly on emacs The absence of it in Atom is really a show stopper for me. I can’t believe it doesn’t already exist, but I don’t know what package it would be in.
