Lightweight atom.io Salesforce development plugin.
Primary goal is seamless atom.io integration. Utilize the growing atom.io ecosystem of packages and play to its strengths as an editor as much as possible. For example, compile error messages are linted in code using linter. And no, you do not have to have a separate app or server running to use it!

.atomforce. Next time you open up and do
activate, atom-force will read your previous token and you can pick up where you left off.
Note: this is a big difference from how other IDEs work. This way your username/password is never stored in plain text. If your machine is ever compromised, you can de-authorize atom-force tokens via Salesforce UI and you will still be protected.
You can now add other orgs, which you can then deploy to via metadata API:
Packages > atom-force > Add org.
Currently atom-force cannot download your org's metadata - the assumption is that you already have a git repository set up with your code in it. This functionality is on the roadmap. For now, use another IDE or use ant or solenopsis.
Simply save any file whose extension matches
(cls|trigger|page|resource) and atom-force will automatically save to your Salesforce environment. Any errors will be linted using linter. (Future: allow auto-save to be turned off, allowing the user to keybind to the save command).
