Anyone using atom here for developing blender addon etc ? How can i setup the blender environment (autocomplete, lib access etc) in Atom ? Tried to googling it but can't found any help. Some tutorial i found is for pycharm, can't find for atom.

    $\begingroup$ You will probably have to write your own atom package using blender's python lib... $\endgroup$

First of all you'll need to make sure, that Atom knows how to lint and autocomplete python-code (there should be plenty of packages to achieve that).

Test your auto-completion and package access with common packages (e.g. os). Make sure it works as desired.

If so, the only thing left to do is to get Blender into your python environment. You can either

  1. compile Blender as a python package yourself and add it to the site-packages folder of your python installation
  2. or use pip to install the bpy package, that should add Blender as a precompiled module (I don't know, how well it's been maintained though).
