How to make atom show the getting started guide at every startup


#1

I would like to know how to make atom always show the getting started guide when it’s launched.


#2

You can put this in your ~/.atom/init.coffee:

atom.config.set 'welcome.showOnStartup', true

#3

Thanks, that worked perfectly.


#4

Why put in into init and not directly to config?


#5

The value resets to false again when the package is loaded, so that it only shows the first time atom is started


#6

So packages overrides the values in config?


#7

Yes, packages can change the values in your config.cson, otherwise how would the Settings View change anything? :grinning:
