In this article, you will learn how to set up Atom Editor for Python. Atom Editor is a very popular editor used to code different programming languages such as Java, Python, C++, PHP, and more. Here in this article, we are just going to focus on Python.
Python is a popular high-level and general-purpose programming language. It was first released in 1991 by Guido Van Rossum. It is used to create desktop GUIs, Web-based applications, websites, and many more.
How to Setup Atom Editor For Python
Step 1: Open Atom , when you open Atom Editor for the first time, it will ask you to register a default Atom URL handler for that just click on “Yes“
Step 2: We want to configure the Python programming language with Atom. We have to install the Python support package for that click on “Install a Package“. If you are not getting the install a package option just use this key combination Shift + Ctrl + p and search for install and open Install Packages and Themes.
Step 3: Now search for python language, on the search result you will find the language-python package. If that package already installs it’s good, if not install it. This is only the python language support on Atom. Now we have to install a package to execute the python file. For that, we have to install one more package.
Step 4: Again go to install and search of a script and install it. The script is a very popular package used to execute programming languages on Atom. Recommended watching the above video mentioned in this article.
Note:- Use Shift + Ctrl + b to run code in Atom
