Disabling session preservation between launches


I want Atom to be opening fast and clean, it’s rare I’m editing exactly the same files as last launch and am always jumping between projects so preserving the session is actually troublesome for me.

How can you disable this? I assumed it was an official package which I could disable but I wasn’t able to find anything relevant in my package list.


This is a known issue and is being tracked here:

You can always open the current directory as the project by using atom .


alias atom='atom .'
