Notepad++ Atom

Nice to see Notepad++ included in Reactor. Thanks to everyone involved. :) Some feedback:

scriptlib is missing from the User Extension list, so a more comprehensive list would be:
atom comp eyeonscript fu fuse setting toolbars prefs def scriptlib

I always loved how it keeps unsaved files open. Useful for having quick notes at hand that you'll be trashing later. Apparently they changed that default setting a while ago, but I'm so used to it being on, I would suggest having it on too. Settings -> Preferences -> Backup -> check “Remember current session for next launch” and “Enable session snapshot and periodic backup”.

When comparing files, the difference highlighted is unreadable. Maybe that could be fixed too, but I never tried doing that myself:

All good points.

If you have a moment, feel free to roll them into the Atom and submit it to Reactor?
