Install Atom Text Editor in Ubuntu 14.04, 13.10

Atom is a hackable text editor for the 21st century, built on atom-shell, and was developed by GitHub. Like other desktop apps, Atom Text has its own icon in the dock, native menus and dialogs, and full access to the file system. It is used also as a n IDE (Integrated Development Environment)


Atom is built with the same open source technologies used by modern web browsers. At the core of Atom is Chromium, the open source project behind Google Chrome. With that comes all the power and innovation being developed for the web.

Currently Atom only supports 64bit OS architecture so it won’t run on 32bit systems.
