This is a prerelease version of Atom.



(Maintainer responded, waiting for review/Maintainer update)

Package test results are passing.

This version is in moderation and has not yet been approved. This means it doesn't show up under normal search.
  • Until approved, you should consider this package version unsafe - it could do very bad things to your system (it probably doesn't but you have been warned, that's why we have moderation).
  • This package version can change wildly over the course of moderation until it is approved. If you install it and it later has changes to this version, you will be out of sync with any changes that have been made to the package. Until approved, you should consider that this package version doesn't even exist.
  • You cannot install this package under normal scenarios. See How to install package version under moderation for more information.
  • There are also no guarantees that it will be approved.

There are versions of this package awaiting moderation (possibly just this one). See the Version History section below.

Atom has passed automated validation. It may have or may still fail other checks like testing (verification).
Congratulations! This package passed automatic validation review without flagging on any issues the validator currently checks. A human review could still turn up issues a computer may not easily find.

Atom has passed automated testing.
This is not the only check that is performed so check the package page to ensure a 'Ready' status.
Please visit for details.
This is an FYI only. There is no action you need to take. This package is a prerelease, which means it automatically is approved (even if it fails).

Could someone please validate this package? Thanks.

Atom is a text editor that's modern, approachable, yet hackable to the core—a tool you can customize to do anything but also use productively without ever touching a config file.

Cross-platform editing

Atom works across operating systems. You can use it on OS X, Windows, or Linux.

Built-in package manager

Search for and install new packages or start creating your own—all from within Atom.

Smart autocompletion

Atom helps you write code faster with a smart, flexible autocomplete.

File system browser

Easily browse and open a single file, a whole project, or multiple projects in one window.

Multiple panes

Split your Atom interface into multiple panes to compare and edit code across files.

Find and replace

Find, preview, and replace text as you type in a file or across all your projects.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
