apm install document-outline
Displays a hierarchical, interactive outline tree view of your document. This is particularly useful for working on long form documents such as academic papers and theses.
- Markdown (Commonmark)
document-outline:toggle or enable
show by default setting. Single click to jump to heading in document, double click to collapse sub-headings.
Note: for simplicity, only ‘modern’ UI themes are supported (i.e. not the atom-light or atom-dark themes). Should work for popular UI themes including One-light/dark and Atom-material.
It’s easy to get lost working on long documents - an outline view is a huge help. With document-outline, jump to headings in your document, and see the currently edited section highlighted in the outline.
Some handy packages for working on long form markdown documents:
- preview-inline (shameless plug) allows quick inline previews of LaTeX math equations and images in documents without having to generate a preview
- language-pfm syntax highlighting for the pandoc variety of markdown
- markdown preview plus enhanced HTML preview of markdown documents
- build plus
build-makefile. If you use Pandoc to build serious documents, your pandoc command starts to get pretty fancy. Do yourself a favour and write a makefile for that, then use atom-build to easily trigger building your document from the editor.
- drag-and-drop reordering of headings
