On my git bash command line interpreter (in a separate window) I
git add . ,
git commit. Immediately upon hitting the enter key in bash, I immediately see a new file popup in my already open atom system, with the same view as that blog entry shows. Way cool. I update the commit message, and from that point on, it all goes south. If I save the edit in atom, I immediate see the following message in the bash window:
$ git commit Aborting commit due to empty commit message.
Ouch. The only way I can make this work is to save all my work, shut down Atom in total, then do the bash CLI
$ git commit When I do that atom opens up normally with a single file git commit message file in there. Now when I update and save the git commit message, I get a success confirmation on the bash CLI tool The really stinky thing is, when I go back to Atom, all the directories previously listed on the left hand margin are now gone… I have to manually “Add project folders” back again. Sigh… I was really hoping for an integrated tool here.
So my question… am I doing this wrong? Many thanks!
edit: I do see others with same issue, https://github.com/atom/atom/issues/3074 Is best work around (to not kill my coding momentum) to use a different editor for git commits ? What does everybody else do?
