Hadn’t seen anyone mention this but the GitHub package has made Atom unusable slow for me. It instantly picked up over 10 million file and had a 2-5 second lag on any interaction (mouse over, scroll, click etc)
I seem to be facing the same issue too…
I am having the same issue. The lag time is so long atom virtually became unusable.
I too am having this issue; I thought it was only me for the last week or so.
update: I have managed to resolve the issue for now (or so it seems): Sudden massive lag due to automatic file tracking (?) [Atom 1.18] -- resolved
However, take this with a pinch of salt - I am just acting based on suspicions for now. At least only the correct project folder is linked to GitHub now for me, even when I open it on Atom. And the lag has wonderfully vanished!
