    Native core components for Atom

    Emacs does not use ropes. Neither does Atom. Emacs uses gap buffer, while Atom has got specially designed, linked data structure, that seems to be inspired by the both ropes and piecewise table. But it is of little importance. Atom was doomed to go extinct by the time Microsoft purchased Github. Its popularity was already in decline, and there certainly isn't any reason to pour resources in development of two text editors based on Electron.
