So I realize a big selling point of Atom is the customization; allowing packages to be easily built and installed is awesome! But there are THOUSANDS of packages available. And many of them are in a questionable state, at best.
For example: there are a bunch of packages available to launch the Terminal.app, or else to launch a terminal emulated in a pane within Atom. But many of them don’t work at all. Some won’t actually open in the CWD when they are supposed to, or throw an error without opening Terminal at all, or crash as soon as you try to scroll a window. Some of them haven’t been updated in a year. Some have absolutely zero documentation. I have even seen packages where the readme just says “don’t use this package” (that’s at least helpful).
I know you can look at how many times something has been downloaded and starred, but is there any way a feature could be implemented for packages to be marked as “functional/nonfunctional” (not talking bugs, but really NONfunctional)? It seems like, if a package is in an early alpha state, it should be hidden from the list (or at least have an option to hide).
