Editing project state - like the open tabs


I’ve opened a large file that Atom doesn’t seem to be able to cope with. Atom freezes. Restarting atom tries to reopen that file and freezes. And so on.

I can resolve this by moving the offending file out of the way when restarting atom. I can move the file back after restarting and restart atom without it trying to reopen it again.

This is a faff. As Atom’s premise is to be the most hackable editor possible, I wondered where the option was to edit the project space so I can remove the tab for a file to stop it being reopened.


There is not such an option. Since Atom is so hackable, you could make one, if you familiarized yourself with how Atom stores its data.
