Can i code in Python with Atom? Also, how do i run codes and debug in Atom?

I know a few IDEs for python, and the best one out there for Python is PyCharm. I've used it and loved it. But i dont wanna buy its subscription. Instead i'd like to continue with my fave IDE , Atom. So yeah my question is , Can i use Atom for coding in Python and running codes in console and debugging? If i can , suggest me some packages needed to install and likewise stuff.

Please guide me through. Thanks Y'all! (:
