I figured this was pretty cool. An editor created using Electron, that you can use to create Electron apps.

https://atom.io/

What’s fun about this is that after using the Brackets editor for some time, and it is pretty good, I realised that Brackets was written in JavaScript. I had no clue how though. Now I realise it’s done in a similar manner. A JavaScript engine, powering a browser style interface.

Also Microsoft have just released Visual Studio Code, which is actually made using Electron!

I’ll certainly be trying our Atom in place of Brackets for a while.
