ATOM NOT launching


#1

I’m on a mac in version 10.10.5. My ATOM won’t launch! It says “there is a problem…”.
Supposedly 9.7 or above is good enough to use ATOM but something is not working.
It worked yesterday. I didn’t update anything. ANYONE have any idea. I have many websites written in ATOM! HELPPPPPPPP!


#2

Atom is a text editor, not a language. (Almost) Any other text editor is able to open the files Atom can.

As for the issue, you can try seeing if earlier versions of Atom still work.


#3

Did it write anything about it being a language…?
There are not dates on that page. How would I know which one is an older version…


#4

The versions are the release name e.g. try installing Atom 1.27.2: https://github.com/atom/atom/releases/tag/v1.27.2.

You’ll need to temporarily turn-off auto-updating as well at Settings > Core > Automatically Update until the issue is resolved. You can subscribe to the issue for updates:
