How do you use the Atom code editor with Bitbucket?

I've been searching for an integration between Bitbucket and the Atom code editor. Seems I fall short every time. Who else is using Atom in their work flow and how do you communicate with Bitbucket?

Is there a plugin to connect the two?

I use Atom for everything, except for Java ( I used to use Eclipse), on a daily basis at work on Windows and Linux. 

1. In Windows, I have installed Sourcetree, as an out-of-the-box took coming with BitBucket, and also using Gitbash.

2. In Linux, depends if it is a standalone or a guest VM. 

2.1. Guest VM (Oracle VM VBox in most cases) - either clone in Windows and share the folder in Linux, or use 2.2.

2.2. Standalone - git from the command line. I haven't used any GUI.

I have this question as well.

I have tried creating a token in Manage Account -> Personal Access Tokens

Then taking that token and pasting it into the Atom login where it says "Enter the token below", unfortunately still not working. See screenshots:


It appears this only works by logging in via the link (displayed in the screenshot)

you can use "git", no need via atom link.

that you need only add remote origin with your personal token (edit config file in .git folder)


repositoryformatversion = 0
filemode = true
bare = false
logallrefupdates = true
[remote "origin"]
url = https://personal
name = user-name
email = user-email

I'm also wondering about this. Saw integration for gitlab available
