Setting up Atom for Rails Development

In the vein of these Sublime Text 3 recommendations for Rails development, here's my Atom setup for developing apps using Ruby on Rails.

After using Sublime and Vim for several years, I switched to Atom a year ago, and have not missed one feature from the other two so far. Since Atom is in continuous development by the core team and the community, it only gets better as time passes. Also, it's free.


No need to install any package manager for Atom. The editor is composed of over 50 open-source packages, and so the package manager is built in. There's a phenomenal package repository online, or you can search for them directly on Atom's Settings -> Install. And, since Atom is open source and built using web technologies, creating new packages or extending exiting ones is easy. Here are the ones I use:

Export a list from Wunderlist (even if they don't want you to)

No amount of googling has provided me with a way to export a list from Wunderlist. The closest I've found form an official answer is "this is something we hope to add with a future update". Well, here's my unofficial solution:
  • Navigate to the list you want to export:
  • Open the Chrome console: Ctrl + Shift + J / Cmd + Opt + J
  • Load jQuery by pasting the following:
    var jq = document.createElement('script');
    jq.src = "";
  • Paste this to print out your list on the console
  • $('.taskItem-titleWrapper-title').map(function(){ return $(this).text();})
  • Grab your shiny new list from the console in a convenient format :D

If you've found a better solution, do share!
