Like the title said, when I launch atom it doesn’t open the last open files and it doesn’t remember which folder I was last working in. I have to re-open the folder I want and the files I want manually every time. How do I avoid this?
Atom has the concept of a “project” that is tied to a folder, typically containing a Git repository. If you open the same folder, it will remember your saved state.
The folder am opening does have a contain a git repo. But unlike you said it does not remember the state. Do I have to set the “project” somehow?
Okay, I opened the settings and found the “Project Home” option, set it to my repo and relaunched atom but still, nothing.
If I remember correctly, Atom writes its state to
~/.atom/storage/editor-<some very long number>. Do these files exist on your system?
I think that path only exist on linux. Where would I look if I were on windows?
I don’t have access to a windows machine right now, but probably one of
In my %appdata% folder I have an atom folder with these files in them
Cache, Cookies, Cookies-journal, DevTools Extensions, GPUCache, Local Storage
and in my %localappdata% atom folder I have
SquirrelSetup.log Update.exe app-0.175.0 app.ico bin packages
I couldn’t find this though
editor-<some very long number>
For Windows (and every other supported OS) Atom’s config directory is the same, the home folder of the user, so
%USERPROFILE%\.atom if you prefer Windows notation.
Thanks I found that the atmo directory is
C:\Users\q6\.atom but still no
editor-<some very long number> folder
It would be in the
~/.atom/storage directory. That’s where Atom keeps all of its remembered state files.
/storage directory does not exist for me.
