Note: There are a couple of threads on GitHub and sourceforge with the same question, but none of them has a functional solution.
I’m looking for a good cross-platform editor so I can use the same workflow everywhere, and Atom does seem like a good editor, from trying it out on Windows, but a fundamental requirement for it to be more useful to me than my current system of using three different text editors is that I need to be able to install it on linux systems at work that I don’t, and will not, have root access to. All of the linux install methods mentioned on this site require using sudo. Is there any way to install this that doesn’t require root? (eg. local install to my home directory instead of root, compiled binary for standard linux distros (RHEL Server 6.4, in this case), etc.)
Any advice would be appreciated.
