A rich text editor for everyday writing.
Compose beautifully formatted text in your web application. Trix is an editor for writing messages, comments, articles, and lists—the simple documents most web apps are made of. It features a sophisticated document model, support for embedded attachments, and outputs terse and consistent HTML.
Atom is now available for Mac users and is open source, naturally. The company plans on releasing Linux and Windows versions very soon.
# Welcome to the Atom!
1. To help us improve the editor, Atom sends anonymous usage information. See
[atom/metrics](https://github.com/atom/metrics) for details on how to disable
the metrics package and what information is tracked.
2. If you only remember one thing make it `cmd-shift-P`. This keystroke toggles
the command palette, which lists every Atom command. Yes, you can try it now!
Press `cmd-shift-P`, type `markdown` and press enter. It will trigger the
`markdown-preview:show` command which renders this text to HTML.
4. Here is where you can get more help with Atom
* The [Atom docs](https://www.atom.io/docs) contain Guides and the API
* Discuss Atom at [discuss.atom.io](http://discuss.atom.io).

5. If you ever want to see this buffer again use the command palette
(`cmd-shift-P`) and search for `Welcome`.
Light Table is a new interactive IDE that lets you modify running programs and embed anything from websites to games. It provides the real time feedback we need to not only answer questions about our code, but to understand how our programs really work.
At GitHub, we’re building the text editor we’ve always wanted. A tool you can customize to do anything, but also use productively on the first day without ever touching a config file. Atom is modern, approachable, and hackable to the core. We can’t wait to see what you build with it.
