Automatically check for package updates


It would be nice to have Atom periodically check for package updates. The only time it does is when I open atom (from when it was closed/not running) or when I check manually. I don’t restart Atom/my computer often so I have to remember to manually check for updates. Thanks!


Give a shot.


Looks like it would be good for automatically updating, but some people may not want to necessarily update, or if a bug pops up before a patch, you wouldn’t want it to automatically update. I’m just looking for something to automatically check for updates then put the little box in the bottom right of the atom window.


Add an issue on that package’s repo. Suggest that an option should be added to only check for updates, not install them.
