Coders, freelancers and other IT workers often rely on code editing tools to automate repetitive tasks, such as setting up backups, fixing security holes and troubleshooting bugs.
Now, a software company has developed a free tool that lets you edit code on your computer in real-time, saving you time and allowing you to test your changes before committing to a final version.
The program, called Atom Code Editor, can edit code in your browser, or from a web page, and is compatible with most web browsers.
Its free version can edit up to 20 lines of code per minute, with a higher version costing $1.99.
It’s not the first time programmers have turned to Atom Code Editing, which is available for $2.99 to $7.99 for a paid version.
Code editor can edit your code in a browser, and it’s compatible with the most web browser.
But, there are still a few technical hurdles that need to be overcome before it’s easy to use.
Code editing software, such the Atom Code editor, can be downloaded from the developer’s website.
“The biggest hurdle for most people is understanding the different ways to open and edit code,” said Aaron Leventhal, an IT security consultant and creator of the Atom code editor, which he says is “pretty easy” to use and “free.”
“Code editors tend to be used by people who don’t understand programming, but the idea is that you can’t go wrong with a code editor.”
“It’s an easy way to edit code, and you don’t have to learn anything to do it,” Leventhal said.
The free version of Atom Code editing program is available to users of the free version, but it will be updated with new features in the future, he added.
After using the program for a few days, Leventhel said he “got a ton of new ideas to improve the software.”
“I have a lot of new coding ideas, and I’m really happy with the way the software has evolved over the last few months,” he said.

In addition to the Atom coding editor, Levehtal also created a free web-based version of the program, which you can download for free.
The Atom Code Code Editor can edit as many lines of Code as you like.
You can also test your code changes by viewing it in the browser.
The web-enabled version also includes a free preview version that lets users see code snippets for themselves before committing.
Atom Code Editors costs $2 per hour for free, or $4 for the paid version that comes with an online developer support and tutorials.
You’ll need to sign up for Atom Code Development Club, a nonprofit membership service for software developers.
