Some useful extensions for web page programming that I installed
1.Auto Close HTML package
Under normal circumstances ending tags will be inserted on the same line for inline elements and with
\n\t\n in between for block elements. This is determined by attaching an element of the given type to the window and checking it’s calculated

2.CSS Autocomplete package

I will choose Atom because it is open source. Many people are working with it to make it better. Compare with Sublime, it is more user-friendly. We can very easy to install a package without opening another browser.
