Javascript RE or why Atom find and replace functionality is broken

Today, I had to edit some specific values of a not-that-big csv file, and instinctively tried to do it manually from Atom. After too many some tries, I concluded something was wrong. My regex was definitely on point, but Atom kept saying its Invalid regular expression thing. I repeated my try, but this time from PyCharm, and… voilĂ ! But hey, wtf? Why are regex not working on Atom? A simple search returned the answer: Javascript’s regular expression flavor is being used.
