Setting up Atom

So I decided to pick up Ruby on Rails, and I didn't want to use Sublime for it. Just wanted to try something new and decide to Atom a go. I wish I could use RubyMine but, ain't not professional enough to afford it.

The switch to Atom is mostly intuitive because it is pretty much the same as SublimeText.

For instance, the multi-cursor - cmd+d, cmd+shift+↑, cmd+shift+↓ - and more keys are still the same.

I'm just going to list some packages that I find useful here, and the list will be updated as I discover new stuffs.

ProTip: Change your theme to One Dark. Pretty nice theme to start with.

After thoughts
If I were to complain, Atom does require a restart after a package install, which can be annoying.

And why is VIM mode not supported as core?

I also hope there's a package that can help me auto format the code to the standard I want. Haven't found one in either SublimeText or Atom though.
