I've recently comeacross the package "VS Remote Code - WSL" and I'm looking for an alternative package, with similar function, for the Atom text editor. What i want is to be able to run Atom on my windows machine and edit files (like java and python prodject files) in an WSL instance running on the same machine.

Does anyone have any recomendations, or is VS Code my only alternative here?

*this might not be a problem any more when WSL2 comes out, as is to my understanding that you will be able to edit files in the linux file system from windows, But pleace correct me if I'm wrong.
