A newly created text-editor has just been launched by Github last week, named Atom. Having worked on it for over six years, the new editor is finally available through an invite-only beta program.

Calling it “a hackable text editor for the 21st Century”, it started off as an experiment, but Github said that it quickly became a tool that it couldn’t live without.

One of the main reasons for building Atom was that the company wanted an editor that “will be welcoming to an elementary school student on their first day learning to code, but also a tool they won’t outgrow as they develop into seasoned hackers.”

Atom is in closed beta for Mac users right now (with Windows and Linux builds coming soon).
