Hello, I have been using atom 1.63.0_dev for months and it is now broken.
I have removed it. I am noticing there is no atom package in Manjaro packages.
The good thing of atom is that it allows to edit remote files with SCP/SFTP.
I have tried to install this:
$ yay -S atom-community-git
it fails with the following error:
> firstname.lastname@example.org preinstall /home/marco/.cache/yay/atom-community-git/src/atom
> node -e 'process.exit(0)'

I have read that Manjaro is supposed to be the best Linux distribution for developers. So what is the best editor to use?
There is none, even if you limit the scope to Manjaro. Editor choice is a personal preference, I personally use Sublime Text and I consider it as the best FOR ME. My colleagues prefer VSCode instead. We all are just as productive.
Or just Kate for everything. Don’t forget to install and configure the various plugins, though. AFAIR it comes with nothing checked by default, making it simply like a plain text editor. But yea, either community/code or aur/visual-studio-code-bin are massively more developed because they have user contributed repositories for plugins, just like Sublime Text.
