Atom Update Plugins (Quick and Easy)

This guide will show you how to update plugins that you have installed on Atom. This is something that you should be in the habit of doing on a regular basis. The main benefits of updating your plugins are: 1) gaining new features with the release, 2) bug fixes being addressed within the release, and 3) security flaws being fixed. While new features are always cool, the most important reason to update here is security.

  1. On the main menu select File > Settings
    Atom - File - Settings
  2. On the sub menu, select Updates.
    Atom - Settings - Updates
  3. Here you have two options. 1) You can select the update all button on the top right. This will do exactly what you think… update all the plugins. Or you can select update on specific plugin and it will only update the selected plugin.
