Editor crashes when trying to load packages in Settings


Has anyone encountered this and know how to fix it? Every time I open Settings and click on Packages the editor crashes after a few seconds of attempting to load the packages.


I should add that this only started happening after installing the Atom CSS Unit Converter package. Uninstalling it has not fixed the problem.


I don’t think I’ve seen that before - a few questions:

  • What version of Atom are you running (atom -v)?
  • What operating system are you running?
  • Do you see the same problem in safe mode?


Atom: 1.32.0
Electron: 2.0.9
Chrome: 61.0.3163.100
Node: 8.9.3
macOS: 10.13.6 (17G65)

No, the problem goes away in safe mode.


If that’s the case, then the issue is one of your community packages (or possibly something added to your init script).

Besides the CSS Unit Converter package you mentioned, I’d suggest disabling all community packages and then reenable them one-by-one until you find the package causing the crash.
