OSD Lab6 (New Editor)

Getting Started:

So the first part of this lab was to pick an editor I have never used before. We were given a list of options or we could have done another one of our choosing. So I deiced to use Atom because it looked like a very good editor that has plenty of plugins and extensions to go by.


Things I liked:

Some of the things I really liked about atom, was being able to show invisible spaces, to tell if there are tabs or spaces in certain areas that could mess styling. Also being able to open a project on the sidebar really helped me with being projects.

Here are some cool features I really liked about atom:


Custom Keybindings:


Mini Map navigation:


Searching Packages:


Project Navigation:


Split Screen :


Git Connection:
