Favorite packages and themes?


#1

Hey, Atom community! We’re hopefully going to pick up the ol’ “This week in packages” blog post series again, and I thought a great start would be to ask you folks if there was anything in the package index that you find essential or exciting. One package I find pretty cool is this CSS animation curve editor: https://atom.io/packages/bezier-curve-editor

How about you?


What are your most used / favorite plugins?
#2

Vim-mode anyone? I still find it needs work, but it’s a pretty big deal for a lot of people.


#3

https://atom.io/packages/gist-it is really handy!


#5

I think atomatigit is pretty cool and shows great promise for the future!


#6

The emmet package is also pretty cool, a lot of nice commands for web development.


#7

Atom lint for writing better code !


#8

Zenburn theme ! https://atom.io/themes/zenburn

Aw thanks. Glad you like it.

Personally I’m a big fan of the Base16 Dark syntax theme:

Base16 Dark

I’ve been using it since my TextMate days and I haven’t found a theme I like better yet.


#10

I’d have to say Merge Conflicts, it has simplified something that is generally complex with a nice interface.


#11

atom-jshint - useful for keeping my JS tidy.


#12

Trendy as both UI and Syntax themes is pretty much amazing.


#13

My favourites are the Spacegray theme (ported from Sublime Text) and Emmet. The theme needed a few modifications, but it’s absolutely stunning!


#14

Ask-stack, is now one of my top used plugins.


#15

The two packages I find indispensable are:

  • Project Manager. I need project management and this package is very good (though I wish it supported an assortment of folders for each project).

  • Atom Lint. For Python coding I’d hate to be without a linter. I did disable most of the PEP-8 warnings.


#16

Isn’t that such an awesome idea? I love that thing!
I’m not a seasoned developer so I always have questions, always get stuck at some point, and with this package I can not only query stackexchange right from inside atom, but I can copy and insert snippets from answers there directly into my code…

Once it uses the active theme as well, this is going to be a constantly open pane in my atom.

https://atom.io/packages/preview-plus . Please check it out.


#18

sublime-style-colum-select

I work on a lot of config files and stylesheets where this feature is a life saver. I can still remember when I first discovered this in sublime, it’s like the day they put a man on the moon.
