How do I install the Atom text editor on a 32 bit Debian system?

Among the releases I can only see a 64 bit version. Do I need to compile it myself to use it on a 32 bit system?

Short: Yes.

Long: Looking at...

...it really looks like there are no ready-to-download 32bit packages for Debian and other Linux flavours.

32bit linux is not part of the official release cycle. However, there exists a PPA that has Atom 1.26.1 for 32bit Ubuntu. To install:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/atom
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install atom

Here you find the package information by webupd8team.
