Installation Steps


Is there a video tutorial on how to properly install packages. Every extension that I have installed so far has failed to load. This tool is great, but I do not think there is much support for it yet. Any help would be much appreciated.


Could you give the following information?

  • Which version of Atom are you using?
  • What OS and version are you running?
  • How are you trying to install the packages?
  • What error message are you getting?

Thanks :grinning:


Problem solved.


Okay, never mind lol…I figured what the problem was. Silly mistake. I guess the read cache is unable to write unless the document is saved first. Woops. This would be a nice feature in upcoming versions = p


Could you please explain more? What does the read cache have to do with installing packages? What is the read cache?
