Im new to atom and i need a little help


Hello, i’m new to atom and i need some help with the language aspect of atom.
i came from notepad++ and you had this option to choose in what language you wanted to code,
is there a similar feature in atom or do i just save it as a .js, .css, .html or whatever


Hi @H_raven, Atom automatically picks up on what file type you are editing and adjusts syntax for it. Some languages, however, are not included. You can use File -> Settings -> Packages to see what packages are installed (there are a lot of them pre-installed, and all the file types you listed are supported out of the box), and you can use the installer from the settings to add more.



oh, thanks its that easy huh


There’s also a grammar selector that is documented in the Atom Flight Manual here:
