Hey guys, I have been using Atom for over a year after switching from Sublime 3 (via Brackets) as a mobile and front end developer. I love Atom to pieces, but I am just losing too much time battling some slowdowns with Atom that for the sake of my job means I am going to have to switch back to Sublime.
I was hoping before doing that I could get some help on just how to debug the causes of the following things that are making me lose so much time in a typical working day.
I run into these issues on two seperate i7 laptops with 8GB ram but no SSD drive.
- Painfully slow startup time, including when switching projects (not fast switching). To give you an idea, below is my timecop on a cold startup:
When my code has links in them, such as JSON config files and the like, if I click anywhere near that link, the IDE will freeze for at least 10-15 seconds, as though it is trying to follow the link or something. I have tried going through plugins thinking one of them is the cause, yet to find it, anyone else experience this?
Minified files - I know this is an ongoing issue tracked on GitHub, but has anyone got a workaround for the IDE freezing for at least 20-30 seconds when accidentally selecting a minified file in the tree and it being previewed?
IDE freeze on first save after cold boot - Whenever I need to do the first save of a file after newly opening a project, the IDE will freeze for around 10 seconds. Only happens on the first save of the day so to speak.
Just need to understand the process of debugging these issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers and Merry Christmas!
