Per folder/project packages


As a suggestion, it would be great if you could conditionally enable packages based on the type of project / folder that you’re opening atom from. Some packages (such as go-plus) need additional tools to work properly and it gets annoying to have to deal with prompts when working with non-Go projects.

Not sure if this can already be done at the package level? If so, sorry, and I’ll suggest it to the package maintainer :wink:

That said, I think it still would be beneficial.


I’m not sure what you mean by “deal with prompts”?


I was talking about this, but I realize it is specific to the package. This runs every time I open atom and it can’t find ./bin/gocode.

However, let me phrase it a bit differently or try to offer up a different example.

If I am working on a Go project in atom, then I might want a sidebar / panel for the debug tool, or some other packages active for every Go project. It might just be that i could have a “layout” for every Go project and add it in the same way I add a .gitignore file.

If I then move to working on a web project I might want to do it differently with a different set of tools. Right now atom doesn’t seem to deal with these cases very well, especially when I just want to edit a simple text file. It would be nice if we could modularize the whole package enabling / disabling a bit.


Ah, now I understand. Thank you :grinning: In that case, it seems that this is a duplicate of this previous topic:
