Help! Why is this making Atom lag to the point its un-usable?


I’m pretty new to web dev, so this is baffling me. It’s making atom lag to the point where I can’t use it and it just crashes. I have no idea what I did to make it like this. Please help?!


Do you by any chance have a .git folder in your home directory? If so, can you try renaming it to .git-backup and seeing if that helps?


I don’t see a file by that name. I tried changing my default project home and it didn’t help :frowning:


It might be hidden by default (I’m pretty sure that MacOS hides dot files by default). You can use the command rm -r ~/.git in Terminal to delete it.
