Today this will be a quick tutorial about installing packages in atom for Windows machines. Atom is an open source code editor that is comprised of over 50 open-source packages. Think of it as if sublime text and notepad++ had a baby and it just turned out to be awesome.

In order to download your version just go to https://atom.io/ Since this is an open source tool you are allowed to customize the Atom code editor to you specific needs. There is a huge open source developer community that has created many packages to increases your coding productivity flow.
So there are two ways to install a package in atom. The first way(which kind of sucks) is to go through the gui.
You can go to the File menu >Settings to open up the settings configuration for Atom.
Or Press the buttons ctrl+shift+p (all at the same time) and a search menu appears. In the search menu type the keywords Install packages and click Settings View:Install Packages and Themes
In the search bar type in the name of the package you are looking to download. I don’t like installing package this way because you ending have a list of packages that you are not really looking for. I like going through the command line to install packages
Command Line Way
Navigate to the windows command learn. By default you are taken to the path C:\WINDOWs\system32
Change the path to
next type in
in order to activate the Atom Package Manager
You should see something like this:
then type the code
apm install <package-name>
And that’s it! You are done and you have increased your productivity by a 1000!
