I think it would be enough for web development. As web development tasks are not very beefy and does not consume a lot of memory.
Martin Taylor you are right. I was also searching for official system requirements for atom too, but found out that although it is a light weight editor as it is but once we add more and more plugin it becomes harder for RAM to handle it. So Moshtafizur Rahman Anty in order to work efficiently ,either you should buy a system with more ram, or you can opt for much lighter editors like Sublime text.
Moshtafizur Rahman Anty bro, use vscode. My computer RAM is 4GB. And also use Linux. Linux is faster than Windows. I never gets any problem. Learn little bit how to use terminal or bash.
Arsenic Sir,can I use Atom code editor for web development purpose using 4 gb ram?
Although enough for web development but i suggest go for 8 GB. I am sure you are not going to use your laptop or desktop exclusively for web development. More so if your laptop/desktop doesn't have a dedicated graphics card, then the onboard graphics will take nearly 2 GB of RAM
I wouldn't recommend running Atom editor on anything less than 8GB RAM, it will run in 4GB like a sloth on methadone. Atom seems to suck up all the ram it can get. I wasn't able to find a list of official system requirements for ram on the atom.io site. Their forum is full of questions about it. You know things are bad when the software writers don't even publish the ram requirements. I tried it for a while and deleted it, the same with vs code. They are both eye candy loaded memory hogs.
@Arsenic what about using Brackets code editor?
Moshtafizur Rahman Anty although I have never used *brackets* before but looking at its reviews and system requirements on its official site, it looks good to me and I think should work efficiently on a low end system also.
Yes it's fine
But I use Sublime text it's very nice
Btw I have 8gb ram
Martin Taylor Thanks for your answer. If I use hp 15-da0019tu by adding 4gb extra ram then is it enough for atom code editor, Microsoft visual studio and the new one brackets code editor?
