Seems like Atom defaults to opening new windows with the tree view open. Is there a way to turn that off?
No, there isn’t currently an option for that. You could submit an Issue or Pull Request to add one though.
It’s been a while, but this would be an awesome feature.
I think most developers have some kind of “workspace” folder under which they have a directory tree for all the programming related projects. In addition, atom only gives access to all files in the root directory, there cannot be multiple root directories, so if i want access to all my stuff, i open atom in my “workspace”.
Currently I use the terminal to navigate around my file system and open atom on the locations i want.
- With this feature, i could use atom instead and pop up a new atom editor in one of the folders.
- In addition there could be a tree-view feature, that indicates all the folders for which a configuration was saved in “.atom/storage”
I suspect that Atom already provides the features you’re talking about @serapath. I occasionally use Atom to open multiple folders and then have it save the configuration to open the same set of folders again.
- Navigate to
- Open Atom with
atom .— Opens Atom with
~/Source/fooas the single root folder
- Right-click on the tree view and select “Add Project Root” to add
- Do some work
- Close Atom with Cmd+Q
The next time I open Atom with
atom . from the
~/Source/foo directory it should open with all the same root folders.
No, I dont want multiple project folders.
I want just ONE project root folder per atom window.
When i “right-click” (or assign hotkey for that) on any folder in the “tree-view” i want an option to:
=> Open folder in new atom window
There should be an option in the context menu for that: “Open in New Window”
whoops. true. for some reason i was thinking that opens the file explorer, but it doesnt. ok my fault
thx a lot
Ok, but one thing would be great - if the “tree-view” could indicate folders for which saved views exist in ‘./atom/storage/’
