Raising Issues

If atom-maven is not resolving your classpath correctly, it is really useful for debugging purposes if you could provide sample pom files which I can use to reproduce your issue.

What can I use atom-maven for?

I started developing atom-maven as I wanted to be able to write my Java code in Atom. There are a couple of packages I found which make this easier, but they depend on a .classpath file being configured. As a user of Maven, Maven configures your classpath and makes sure all your dependencies are available when you need them to be. The atom-maven package replicates this functionality and generates the .classpath file other Atom Java packages need, based on your Maven pom files!

Useful Java Packages


Capable of reading the generated .classpath file, this package provides functionlity to organise imports, complete packages and classes, examine methods etc…

Note. git ignored .classpath files are not discovered.


Capable of reading the generated .classpath file, this package will attempt to compile your .java files and show you all the compile time problems with your code.
