Atom editor on Ubuntu

To Install the atom editor for Linux (taken from here):

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/atom
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install atom

I needed syntax highlighting for Lua. My suggestion is:

  • Start atom, press <Ctrl><Shift>P
  • Type: install packages
  • Select ‘Settings View: Install Packages’
  • Search for language-lua package
  • install the language-lua package

You should get the syntax highlighting + other goodies explained here
