This way will help you keep watching Drupal coding standards while you're writing your code inside your Atom editor.
// Make sure you have composer installed in your machine. // Then run this command. composer global require drupal/coder
// Add this line in ~/.bashrc file to make sure everytime you turn on your machine it will be executed. export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin"
// You can verify this has worked with: phpcs -i
// Copy (Drupal) and (DrupalPractice) folders to (Standards) folder or just make a symbolic link. ln -s ~/.composer/vendor/drupal/coder/coder_sniffer/Drupal ~/.composer/vendor/squizlabs/php_codesniffer/CodeSniffer/Standards/Drupal ln -s ~/.composer/vendor/drupal/coder/coder_sniffer/DrupalPractice ~/.composer/vendor/squizlabs/php_codesniffer/CodeSniffer/Standards/DrupalPractice
// Here is the Atom package for drupal coding standards using PHP code sniffer: // https://atom.io/packages/linter-drupalcs
