Both version


#1

I have a question it is sometimes possible to use both the release version and the beta?


#2

Yes. They install in different places but use the same configuration files (unless you set them up differently). A little more information here.


#3

Okay how can you do that and also with different packages


#4

The same set of packages will be used for both Atom versions because they’re stored at the same location: ~/.atom by default. However, you may be able to get around that by specifying a different ATOM_HOME location before starting the stable and beta version.


#6

For the moment, I do not manage to install the two for mac
