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


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.
