Showing Bangla properly in Atom Editor
Atom editor could not display Bangla font properly in Markdown file. If I changed the font from settings, it was being applied to all characters, and it was messing up the display. However, there is a CSS based style file that can be used to modify the UI of Atom. I just had to edit it to:
- Specify a Bengali font for Bengali Characters only
- Specify a font for All Characters
Only for markdown format, mind you.
I modified the style sheet to specify a font just for Bangla / Bengali characters. This is certainly a workaround, and it does not render completely properly yet - but it is a start.

Then, I added the following style:
Of course, you will have to install
Noto Mono and
Noto font in advance to make it work. You can get those from Here. Enjoy!
