macOS: Editor not responding

I did a fresh install of Atom after deleting my existing ~/.atom and ~/.platformio folders. Atom starts up, but Atom Helper shoots op to 105% CPU utilization and Atom pops up with “Editor is not responding”

My specs:
macOS High Sierra 10.13.6
Atom 1.49.0

Thank you

Today I launched atom again and this time it did not immediately give the “Editor is not responding” error. I proceeded to install platformio-ide but again “Editor is not responding” pops up and Atom Helper again shoots up to 105% CPU utilization.

I am running atom from /Applications

This seems to be a bug related to the platformio-ide package?

Today I did a clean install of macOS Mojave 10.14.6 on an external SSD. I again run Atom, proceed to install platformio-ide, but still “Editor is not responding” pops up and Atom Helper again shoots up to 105% CPU utilization.

I did not remove my internal SSD which might affect the Mojave installation, but for now I can only assume there is a bug with platfomio-ide

Thank you for the link.

I ran apm deinstall platformio-ide and then apm install platformio-ide@2.6.0 and everything seems to be working again :slight_smile:
