So I have been using Notepad++ for a while, but I went searching for alternatives the other day and found Atom. I’m not a programmer by any means, but I really just “clicked” with this software so I thought I could use a page of notes for myself on this (unless you find anything useful here).
Install Atom portable at C:\Google\Scripts
Go to Settings and change:
a. Themes = Atom dark for UI and One Light for the text editor
b. System = Register as file handler. I right clicked .txt and .ps1 one files and set Atom as the default viewer for these.
c. Packages = Disable “wrap-guide” to get rid of the vertical line. Installed “language-powershell” so that it can recognize PS input. Installed “highlight-line” and set background color to “153, 255, 153” in style.css file.
d. Editor = Set tab length to 4 spaces.
e. Core = Set “project home” to c:\Google\Scripts
Need to learn Keyboard Shortcuts:
ctrl + o = opens a file
ctrl + shift + o = Opens a directory in the directory tree
ctrl + n = for new file
ctrl + shift + o = for opening a folder
ctrl + t = opens a file in your project
ctrl + shift + l = Sets the language (need to find a way to set default)
