Develop core module without rebuild


I’m hacking some of the atom code in the ‘src’ directory. Using the standard script/build each time I make a change is obviously not optimal. I’ve read through all the discussions about starting atom in dev mode (‘atom -d’ and ‘atom -r’), but I can’t get those commands to load my code from the cloned repo. Atom is clone in ~/github/atom, but atom -d starts atom but does not open any windows. Any guidance would be appreciated.
