I’ve noticed that when using the file open command to open up a single file, Atom will load and parse the folder the file is in. So, if I want to open “index.html” in a directory, rather than opening just the index file, Atom will load the file and get me all the files/folders in the directory into the sidebar view.
As a user, I would probably expect just to see the file I want in the editor rather than seeing the whole directory structure (for that I would click open on the folder rather than the individual file).
Also, there’s bit of a wait involved as Atom parses the folder and creates the tree display. When working in a folder with a lot of files, this could take a while.
What does everyone think?
