A hackable text editor for the 21st Century by Github.


Atom is one of my all-time favorite text editor, and it being open source I wanted to help develop it. I worked on a couple of core packages, starting with a small bugfix for the atom/wrap-guide (#72). Later I added a feature to atom/github that allows you to view the credentials you entered when communicating with the remote (#1808).

I also have a Pull Request open on the main repository to add an option for community packages to prevent a tab from being closed (#13812).

Besides contributing to the core project, I also contribute to the Atom Linter project. This started with adding an intelligent disable function to the linter package for HTMLHint (#172). I also started my own linter package, based on a fork of linter-htmlhint, for htmllint that you can find on GitHub.

Other then that I worked on or participated in the following threads:
