I downloaded Atom, today, looking for a replacement for Notepad 2. One thing that doesn’t seem optimal, with Atom, is the startup time if you’re just opening a single file - say from file associations.
Is there some way to optimise it? I have nothing but the vanilla distribution installed - no extensions or add-ons. Perhaps there is a way to turn off the folder tree loading or whatever.
Anyway, what I’m looking for is something super light-weight that opens quickly. Notepad 2 is a bit ancient and Notepad++ doesn’t really suit me. I like Atom… but I need Atom without the bulk. Recommendations are fine if there’s no simple way to make Atom more light-weight.
