Atom crashing at startup


Since upgrading to 1.32.2, Atom has been crashing at startup. I followed the troubleshooting doc and cleared the state history, reset to factory defaults, tried safe mode and actually deleted the application and downloaded again. As soon as I open a project folder, open a file, quit and restart Atom I get a dialog stating Atom has crashed and to report it to I’m running on a mbp, btw.

This is what I get in the console log:

Application Specific Information:

Any help is greatly appreciated as I don’t really have time to switch to another editor at this point.


Based on the error, looks related to:


To get past the error for now, I think you can temporarily disable Tree-sitter at Settings > Core > Use Tree Sitter Parsers.

What kind of project are you working on (e.g. Rails, JavaScript, etc.) and are you able to share the file or project you’re working on when Atom crashes?
