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


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


You can put this in your ~/.atom/

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


Thanks, that worked perfectly.


Why put in into init and not directly to config?


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


So packages overrides the values in config?


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