I use Atom to edit my website that I download from Weebly backup after making it then put it on my domain via Filezilla
Now I am moving to AL, I installed it bt it has ‘stolen’ the defaults for loads of file types
I prefer xed in most cases
I know I can change the defaults via 0thers’ in the XFCE settings Default Applications, but there are bloody 100’s of them!
So, any suggestions?
The main features I use in Atom are the ctrl+shift+F for search and replace in whole project/folder
P’raps an alternative to Atom (something simpler and lighter?
Or how to install without letting it steal defaults?
Use “xdg-mime” or manually edit “mimeapps.list” to change default app for various filetypes. Or, use something else, for example, leafpad, mousepad, gvim, …etc. They all can do a quick search & replace.
