Atom (specialized text editor)

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

MoonEdit has this feature https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=739 (website is offline, archive.org is offline as well at the moment so can't check for "archived" links, but for the time being alternative download links - direct linking won't work I think due to all the "adverts" that need to be shown I guess:
1 - en . softonic . com/download/moonedit/windows/post-download?sl=1
2 - www . netzwelt . de/download/11517-moonedit.html

Visual Studio Code https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums ... hp?p=82783 now has this as well see
https://code.visualstudio.com/blogs/201 ... live-share

Edit: working archive link, the exe is the same as the two alternatives above which I've now "disabled"

Given that the portable version of Atom we're listing is now over a year old, I started digging into a possible way to make the official version portable. Here are the steps I tried to make it work, so far no luck.
  1. Scroll down to the Latest Release box (in green) and download the zip version for your operating system (either atom-windows.zip or atom-x64-windows.zip for 64-bit).
  2. Extract the Atom folder to a folder of your choice
  3. Download the atom.zip folder and extract it's contents to the application folder ( .atom folder should be in the same location as atom.exe)
  4. Launch atom.exe
  5. When prompted to register as default atom:// URI handler, select No, Never
The ZIP file is attached to this entry. It's literally an empty folder because it's non-simple to generate a folder starting with a period in explorer.

Status: not portable, still insists on writing to \Users\USERNAME\.atom
