Hacking on Atom Series

I have started to spend some time hacking on Atom, and I wanted to share some of my thoughts and learnings from this exploration. I have not posted on my blog in awhile, and this seems like the right medium to document what I have discovered (i.e., too long for a tweet; not profound enough for an essay; failing to answer in the form of a question suitable for the Atom discussion forum).

In the best case, in places where I have stumbled with Atom’s design or implementation, I hope that either (1) someone sets me straight on best practices and why things work the way they do, or (2) to spur discussion on how to make things better. Hacking on Atom is a lot of fun, but I still have a lot to learn.
