Hi all,

Recently I helped a newcomer set up Haskell and Atom (the text 
editor/IDE - not the embedded systems DSL), and also for the first time 
succeeded in getting a "modern IDE experience" working with my own 
projects. I've saved my notes so far - I hope you'll also find them useful:


In the process I found some issues, looked for help in many places, and 
wished the #haskell-atom IRC channel existed. So I've started it:

#haskell-atom on Freenode

I'm an Emacs man, but I try all the available Haskell IDEs periodically. 
Atom is the first one where I've succeeded in getting inline error 
reporting working, and it's the only one I could recommend to a new 
programmer or a mainstream IDE lover right now. So I think this channel 
is worth having, and will grow. All welcome!
