You are a hacker right? (not asking if you’re black hat or black hat)
You are good at it - right?
You are part of this hacker community - right?
You have some good points [**] in your argument.
Now Atom, we will agree, is a very good base for creating code. Not so much for handling mutli projects though. But then there are some good packages that can be helpful.
So… why not you start a package project of your own (sarcasm := VOID)? Since so much are available as open source and permitted for use, there are enough material to combine on your project to have a good start. Try and motivate others to join in too.
That is what it is all about.
[**] :: Footnote ::
I do not like having my activities tracked. Having a system track my movements - even for my convenience - is bad (IMO); not being able to control / clear the tracked activity - - worse! My point? - I for one would not want what you think should be standard. Auto-save also leaves traces… munching resources.
