Atom Crashed, No Longer Opens


Hey guys,

I’m a new Atom user. I was using Atom, and my mac randomly logged me out of my computer to the OSX login screen. After logging back in, Atom will not open. I have tried opening from dock (icon bounces once and then reverts, nothing happens), in my terminal, and in Finder. No luck anywhere. Can someone help me out?

OSX 10.12.2
Not sure which version of Atom I am using as I can’t open it, but I installed it a bit over a month ago if that is helpful.

Thank you in advance.


Have you followed the suggestions in the Debugging document? Specifically the instructions about clearing saved state should be helpful.
