Cannot modify atom-window.js


#1

Trying to disable the window frame, which I don’t think should be any problem, if Atom would let me keep the changes i make… After modifying the file, saving, quitting the editor and then restarting it, my changes are gone. Tried in safe mode too with same result.

The file:
/Applications/Atom.app/Contents/Resources/app.asar/src/main-process/atom-window.js

Any feedback is greatly appreciated :+1::smiley:

Atom isn’t designed to retain your changes like that. If you want to customize Atom’s code itself, you should take a look at how to build Atom from source:
