Long lines break Atom


I have a json file with a single very long line, I got it from the input of Advent of Code 2015 day 12. It freezes Atom whenever I open it. I tried to upload it. Is this a known issue and is there a better way to get around this then just never opening this file in Atom?

This has been reported before, but they keep closing the issue on github and the fix they point to, an old extension, is considered deprecated. The file is only 42 kb. Is there a reccomended fix?


Aw sweet. It looks like this’ll be fixed in the next beta.

Does anyone know how often those come out?
