Hey mates. I’ve started some dev work with Atom packages and there are times when I’d like to test a specific configuration, or want a clean .config folder without messing up my current one, or some other time when I’d like to point Atom to start with a specific .config folder instead of ~/.atom. Is it possible to do this?
In other words, I’d use .atom for normal use, but I might occasionally want to tell Atom to use .atom_test as its config directory for a single session (so, multiple configuration folders on the same local machine). I’ve tried doing something like
atom --profile-directory=/home/fred/.atom2 but that doesn’t seem to have any effect.
Any ideas how this would be possible?
