Detailed version/configuration information for setup and packages


#1

When an error occurs (at least in the beta) a window pops up asking if you want to create a github issue, and it lets you copy a chunk of text that describes your current configuration, settings, version info, etc. Is there a way to access this without an error occurring? If not, it seems like this would be a really nice feature to have!

An example from the error report:

**Atom Version**: 1.9.0-beta0
**System**: Mac OS X 10.11.2
**Thrown From**: Atom Core

[... stack trace and command removed ...]

### Config

```json
{
  "core": {
    "allowPendingPaneItems": false,
    "audioBeep": false,
    "disabledPackages": [

      "linter-markdown"
    ],
    "ignoredNames": [
      ".*",
      "*~",
      "*.pdf",
      "*.png",
      "*.pyc",
      "*.npz"
    ],
    "openEmptyEditorOnStart": false
  },

}

The feature in Atom is based off of my bug-report package. You can use it to get some of the same information in a similar format.


#3

Thanks @leedohm, this looks like exaclty what I wanted - but it just keeps telling me (for packages):

* Could not determine apm version information


#4

I’m not sure what you’re asking or where that error is coming from?


#5


#6

I can’t replicate that behavior using Atom v1.10.0-dev-b702a09 on Mac OS X 10.11.5. Is the apm utility accessible on the PATH on your machine?


#7

Hmm, no I can’t. The command line tools have been installed, but only apm-beta is in /usr/local/bin.


#8

You probably need to install the non-Beta command line tools then.
