Atom became Chrome console


My atom app is running chrome console when try to open any file or directory or even when I just run the app typing atom, the interface I’m facing is JavaScript console :smile: I will attach a screenshot.
I have no idea why it became so, I just shut down my computer before that and nothing more. I have no chance to change it because all option I have in drop-down list are:

Check for update
Close Window
Toggle Dev Tools


What happens when you start Atom with atom --safe? If that doesn’t fix it, you can try atom --clear-window-state, which will erase any unsaved documents and all your open tabs as well.


Doesn’t help the same error happening again


Have you tried deleting and reinstalling Atom?


The reason why is in the error message there in your screen shot:

Something got corrupted in the ~/.atom/blob-store directory. You should:

  1. Completely exit all instances of Atom
  2. Open a terminal and delete ~/.atom/blob-store and all its contents
  3. Start Atom normally

Things should work after that.
