Atom 1.6.0 freezes on OSX


#1

Atom freezes frequently on El Capitan 10.11.3. When this happens I see that Atom Helper is spiking. It’s so bad I can no longer use Atom.


#2

I’m not experiencing this. Did you try Atom in safe mode?

atom --safe


#3

Maybe one of my plugins is causing the problem.


#4

It’s quite possible. If you run Atom in Safe Mode, it doesn’t load any community packages (among other things) so you can see how Atom operates without them easily.
