Atom not loading config file


I arrived to work today and when opening Atom it behaves like it’s opening for the first time. Showing the welcome message and all the default settings. I checked my ~/.atom/config.cson and all the configuration is there, for some reason Atom is not loading it.

Couldn’t tell if it’s the latest update. Anyone with a similar problem?


It’s possible that the file has invalid cson, and atom can’t read it… had you edited that file manually?

I’d try linting it and seeing if it’s ok


@ddavison you were right, for some reason there was and extra quote in the middle of the file. Strangely I did not manually updated.

Thanks a lot
