(atomic-blonde) atom syntax highlighting on linux update!

hi all, i’ve updated the atomic-blonde plugin for Atom, which now uses the swiftenv tool to locate installed sourcekit libraries and load them at runtime. plus, since it’s built atop swiftenv, the highlighter plugin is now aware of what specific version of swift you’re using for a particular project, so what you see in the editor is always the same as what the compiler sees!

Right now on linux, as long as you have a normal swiftenv installation, you should be able to install the plugin through the atom package manager, and it should Just Work (hopefully).

osx is a bit more complicated since swift instances are scattered across a lot of different install locations, but it should be coming soon :)
