Normal tab navigation in Atom Editor… finally

By default, Atom shows the next item in a history buffer, of sort. It doesn’t use the visual display of your tabs to navigate them. What I prefer using is ctrl-tab to goto the next visual tab, and shift-ctrl-tab to goto the previous.

It’s easier than you might think

Here’s how you do it. Add the following to you keymaps.cson file.

'body':
'shift-ctrl-tab': 'unset!'
'ctrl-tab': 'unset!'
'.platform-darwin, .platform-linux, .platform-win32':
'shift-ctrl-tab': 'pane:show-previous-item'
'ctrl-tab': 'pane:show-next-item'

That’s it. Enjoy.
