If you are already aware about Atom text editor then you can skip to next section. But in case you are new to using Atom (or even hearing the name of the text editor for the first time), this is the section that will get you started.

Simply put, Atom is a text editor that we will be using as a tool to write and publish the articles on the experimentalist.

Why Atom
The posts will be displayed as webpages on the experimentalist website. To publish webpages we need to prepare something called Markdown file. It is basically a text file but with tags and syntax that take care of the formatting when the a webpage is rendered from the markdown file. Text editors like Atom make it convenient to write the article or post in a markdown file. There are several Text editor options available. We have chosen Atom because it is open source, free and easy to use.
