I updated Atom, and immediately the editor crashes every time I open it. I have no idea how to figure out what’s going on. Is anyone else having this issue?
See my recent comment here:
Can you try temporarily disabling the GitHub package and see if Atom crashes after that?
I’m having the same problem. I downloaded Atom last night and it was working perfectly upto this morning. But for the past hour every time I open it it just opens to a blank window with nohing showing even after waiing for it. Not sure what has gone wrong. reinstalled it three times now same issue. is there an older version I could use?
Same problem. Boo
@IsaacOluoch - your issue sounds like this one?
So Atom isn’t crashing, but you’re getting a blank window?
If that’s the case, people on that thread have noted that clearing saved state has gotten them past the problem:
Note that any unsaved changes across all projects will be lost if you run this command but if that’s not an issue for you, you can give it a try:
Thanks, @rsese. That appears to have fixed problem–
I tried initially to uninstall all of my community packages, only with no effect.
Is this just a bug with the Github package?
Ahhh yeah, the GitHub package is a core package.
It definitely seems like it’s at least related if Atom doesn’t crash for you with that package disabled. There were 3 issues identified with the GitHub package and 1.18.0 detailed here:
If you’d like, you can follow along with those issues for updates.
