1.9.0 is officially released and I've been using this for the past hour without any problems.

Having said that, feel free to blame me for any issues.

@yitzi: Thanks! This python 2/3 thing is getting a bit ridiculous. Can't wait for 2020.

1.19.0 is up.

There are two additional calls to python in /usr/share/atom/resources/app/apm/bin/ that probably needed to be changed to python2. node-gyp fails otherwise.

First, thank you for maintaining the package. Also, I wanted to note that the description should read either "Chromium based" or more accurately "Electron based", but definitely not Chrome.

@morion @jokeyrhyme However, the atom that is in community has some significant patches, and the upstream atom maintainers generally prefer bug reports from their official build of the package. So, imo, this should be kept.

There is a Atom package in official repository

@forivall - My bad, I didn't check that wiki page, I should have. I'm actually using Manjaro-bspwm and didn't get all of those package installed with it.
