Im new to atom and i need a little help


#1

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.

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