    I'm trying out Atom for Node.js backend with iOS. I always have to search for my own errors which could mean searching for a period for hours. Don't these IDEs for backend development display errors or at least have a npm package or something to help us?

    Do Sublime and Brackets have this feature?

    I like Linter, which is a package you can download for Atom. It's pretty good about catching most every-day errors like missing semi colons and such.

    PS - good choice for choosing Node.js as the backend for the iOS app. Node is pretty awesome. I'd recommend looking into Express and using MongoDB as a database unless you're a relational database type of guy....in which case, I will be praying for you ;)

    I've used Brackets and Atom quite extensively and I've found I definitely like Atom the most. It even works well for Java and many other languages as well.

    Atom is really good. Got all the linters, UI themes and Syntax themes I wanted. Awesome.
