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.

To install Atom, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install atom --pre

To upgrade Atom, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
