Some currently included non-Atom commands include commands bound to all grammar options in Atom ([lang]-mode) and package-install. A list of all built-in custom commands can be found in the commands section.

As development continues, more custom commands will be added, especially ones inspired by Emac’s M-x console.



Atom Console contains all of Atom’s commands available via the command palette, as well as a growing list of custom commands, such as [lang]-mode, package-install. and shell.
