RebelChat is an integrated Chat system for the Hackable Atom Editor. It is a modern way to keep in touch with any team, and keep your messaging under control right in your editor.


This project aims to provide unified UI/UX for all available communication channels. We do believe that you don’t need to install and track all different chat apps, if all you need is just chat with your friends and colleagues.


How to start

To start RebelChat just press ctrl-alt-cmd-m, enter you credentials and enjoy your chatting experience.

By default RebelChat provides some keymaps. But feel free to change it any way you want. You can read more about keymaps here
