The framework is the same, but the editor component is completely different, and so is the package/plugin setup.

I tried vscodium only shortly, it might become a perspective, but I’m used to and generally satisfied with Atom.

Your setup looks much more extensive than mine. I just converted the ConTeXt interface xml into Atom cson snippets and added links to the command reference in the wiki, also a few comments (that should better go into the xmls…).
The description at the repository is still from the predecessor, I need to change that.
So there’s no run command or something like Atom-LaTeX (that runs latexmk, includes a PDF viewer and interprets the log – I enjoy that when working with LaTeX, so I don’t need to use TeXstudio or the like). Atom’s git interface is more important for me than perfect TeX support.

Greetlings, Hraban
