How to write plugins in js


Is it possible to write plugins in vanilla js instead of coffee script?


Yes, of course. For example, the minimap package is written in plain JS. Also toggle-quotes, which is quite simple. I see linter-eslint also (depending on the linter package). atom-ternjs and atom-easy-jsdoc also seems to be written in pure JS.


Just in case you’ve been using package-generator – in its settings you can define whether it creates a JavaScript of CoffeeScript example.
