Enable dev package in normal mode


#1

So I’ve modified a few core packages and submitted pull requests.

Since I don’t know when/if those changes will be merged into the repos, I’m wondering how can I use those without enabling dev mode in Atom.

Anyone faced a similar situation?


#2

I’ve never had the problem because I run in dev mode 100% of the time. Why do you need to turn it off?


#3

Well, now that you mention it, I don’t really need to turn it off.

I just assumed that dev mode would be running more stuff in the background and consuming more resources.


#4

It probably slows up starting Atom. For example, it doesn’t use any cache. You will have to see if it is too painful. I haven’t run without --dev in so long I don’t know the difference. I don’t want to know. (grin)


#5

Link them using apm link but without the --dev option. It should be enough to make them available in normal mode.


#6

Hey thanks @abe

And how would I switch back to the default packages (not the ones I have modified) ?


#7

apm unlink in the package’s directory will go back to the default packages.
