I just installed atom this morning with the plan to use it with nuclide for some react-native development, but it’s slow to the point that I can’t justify using it. I haven’t installed any packages, and the version of atom is 1.6.1.
Startup clocks in at 13 seconds, and switching a tab or typing a letter takes anything from 2 to 6 seconds. When comparing to a buddy of mine who’s running his install on a 2012 mpb 15", it’s incredibly disheartening to look at. His is soo snappy and performant! This has led me to believe that it has to be something on my end, but I’m having trouble troubleshooting the issue. Are there any known causes for this or fixes i could try to get it running properly?
The macbook in question is a 13" retina from mid 2015 (or early, it was the latest when i bought it in august). I’m running el capitan at 10.11.4.
