Apm hangs everytime I try to install Hydrogen


Running MacOS 10.13.4,
apm 1.19.0
npm 3.10.10
node 6.9.5 x64
atom 1.27.0
python 2.7.15
git 2.14.3

apm hangs every time when I try to install Hydrogen, and only Hydrogen. the process is created but it never finish. Does not consume any CPU, just hang. I cleared my .atom folder and the issue presists.

Any help would be appricated.


Have you tried installing it from the command line, or just from inside Atom?


Yep, tried them both, none worked


You only have trouble with Hydrogen, other packages install ok? I’ll try to install Hydrogen on my computer (on macOS 10.12.6) and see if I run into any issues.


It only occured when I try to install Hydrogen. I assume it’s because the cache file is corrupt but Since there’s no log output, I can’t verify. Also seems like reinstalling Atom didn’t do a thing. So curious


Finally had a chance to give it a try and though it does seem to take a while, it eventually finished and errored out (I didn’t look at any prerequisites to install, I was just trying to see if it did anything at all).

Go ahead try installing with the verbose flag and see if there’s any output?

apm install hydrogen --verbose
