Atom editor

by ptlindstrom on Wed Mar 15, 2017 7:22 pm

Hello all, I'm wondering if there is a way to set up Atom to talk to the REPL on a Feather Huzzah running micro python. I'm something of a newbie in the Python world, I do very much like the look and feel of Atom, and am hoping there is a way to integrate the two

Best
Pete

Hi Pete! I use Atom too. I don't use any serial integration though. I find having a separate terminal window open is enough for me. With Atom I edit the file directly from the board, save using the hotkey (ctrl s or cmd s) and then switch to the open serial. By the time I switch my program has already rerun because of CircuitPython's autoreset feature so I can just see the output.

There is Mu that does both but I prefer Atom.

I hope that helps!
