MacOS alternatives to Atom

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/MacOS

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • CotEditor

    Lightweight Plain-Text Editor for macOS

    As others gave mentioned VSCode is probably the best replacement but for something less overkill I often use CotEditor. It’s downloaded via the App Store but is free, open source, apple silicon ready and also has a command line helper tool.

  • lite-xl

    A lightweight text editor written in Lua

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support. Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
