Delay update checking


#1

Is there a way to delay atom checking for updates on startup? So I can jump into my work quickly and then atom can update later so to improve startup and let me work quicker.

There’s this issue that is proposing a way to disable it completely:

But you can also just build Atom from source. When you do, Atom disables update checking.

Thanks that’s a bit drastic just thought I maybe could specify a delay in seconds or something in my user json.

I don’t think checking for updates slows startup in any significant way though - that should be all non-blocking.
