Pulsar Editor – Atom Editor Lives

The Atom Text Editor was officially killed off in 2022 to the surprise of almost nobody. Atom was developed by GitHub, which Microsoft acquired in 2018, leaving Microsoft with two competing editors, Atom and Visual Studio Code, and Visual Studio Code won.

Fans of the Atom editor however didn’t take the news lying down and thanks to the open source nature of the project, a new fork was created, the Pulsar Editor.
