Lots of plugins for GitHub, including colour-coding for which files are staged, committed and so on.
Plugins for syntax highlighting and colour-coding, PEP8 code linter. God I hate PEP8. I like linting in general, I’m a fan of linting. But PEP8, I like thee not.
Sure, I also need to have a shell open at the same time, but if you’re installing and testing Skills on a remote device, well you’re going to have an

Plugins for preview, PDF export and so on. I love MarkDown more than Ron Swanson loves fishing and bacon.

Even though Atom is now owned by Microsoft, which I’m not feeling entirely comfortable about, it’s free and open source. It means that anyone, anywhere can use it, forever, for free. That’s one of the reasons that I work in open source - it’s about contributing to a wider commons of human knowledge and endeavour.
That’s the market space that Mycroft occupies. We’re the voice assistant for the person who cares about privacy, about open source and about not being beholden to a corporate behemoth.
And the editor I choose to work on Mycroft is a choice too.
