I’ve been using Atom for a month or two now. The only big think I lack compared to my previous editor is nice to use file associations when opening files from Windows Explorer, and I’m not the only one - see Atom Issue #4893.
Yesterday I got fed up and wrote a little launcher which leverages the
atom.cmd script to launch Atom from Windows Explorer, but without the nasty console flash and icon that you get if you just point at the script. It seems stable enough to me, so people are welcome to try it:
I’ve built and tested it on Windows 7 only at the moment. It’s using .NET 2.0, so there shouldn’t be any external dependencies.
This is just a first version, but feedback is gratefully accepted. I tried to list the improvements I’m thinking about in the README.
