Atom starting but only showing JavaScript error and white screen


Hello there!

When starting Atom on my Mac, I’m only getting this screen and a JavaScript error:

Could this be related to any local installation of Node or CoffeeScript?



If you have a ‘node_modules’ directory in your home folder and it contains an old version of CoffeeScript then that’s the case. The easiest way is to upgrade the coffee-script package, I guess. Or just remove node_modules if you don’t need it much.


Thanks, that was the right pointer.

Wiped the ~/node_modules directory and things are rolling!
