Atom Starts, But Shows HTML Coding


Good day. I was busy working on Atom, had to quit. Shortly after, came back, and found myself looking at this. If anyone could help me, I’d really be grateful. I have tried reinstalling Atom, and Atom Beta, and both show me this screen.


What happens if you rename the ~/.atom/ folder and then open Atom?


Exactly the same issue…


And when you open it from the command line with atom --safe?


I figured the issue. The theme I had chosen had some badly defined variables, and by the looks of it, they weren’t allowing the editor to launch. I deleted my preferences file, and deleted the app, reinstalled it, and it all went back to normal. Thank you, either way!
