Hey, I discovered Atom a year ago, and I really enjoy it. But I have a few issues with it, especially about the Projet Folders behaviour.
I am working on various websites and web applications, and I wanted to use Atom as my default code files edition software. For example, on Filezilla, all the classical webfiles are opened with Atom.
But when I edit a file this way, Atom is rooted in a different directory, so I loose all my Projects Folder setup. I know that this behaviour is known and even considered as a expected behaviour, according to this issue comment.
I find this behaviour quite problematic for my usage, and I think other people would love to use Atom in the same way I want to use it. That is the reason why I wanted to propose an alternative behaviour, that would make those usages way better.
When someone open a new file not from Atom directly, the folder in which this file is located is added as a temporay Project Folder, which will be removed when the files opened and edited in this folder have been closed.
This would allow us to keep our Project Folders, and to modify easily new files from folders that we might not want to keep as permanent projects folders.
I am open to any comment or suggestion about this proposition.
