C Development Environment with Atom on OSX

There is two kind of people: You love vim or you hate vim.

Therefore I use Atom 💗.

Install Atom

Use Homebrew!

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

Then, install Homebrew Cask

brew tap caskroom/cask

Finally, install Atom:

brew cask install atom



We will install autocomplete-clang, but first we need to install clang:

brew install llvm

See if clang was installed:

clang -v
# Apple LLVM version 7.0.2 (clang-700.1.81)
# Target: x86_64-apple-darwin15.2.0
# Thread model: posix

Then, install the package:

apm install autocomplete-clang


Lint your code with AtomLinter.

Make sure you have installed linter:

apm install linter


apm install linter-clang


To format our C code (and C++, Objective-C, etc) and fix all those linter’s warnings, we need uncrustify.

brew install uncrustify


apm install uncrustify

That’s it! 🎉

My theme is: Atom Material + DuoTone dark.
