Switching tabs in Atom makes my Gulp watch trigger


As the title says, when switching tabs in Atom my Gulp watch get triggered.

Anyone know how to fix this?


Are you using https://github.com/atom/autosave or something ?


I do have it installed, since it is a standard atom package, but it is not enabled.

  • edit a file
  • a blue circle should appear on the tab
  • switch to another tab
  • if the blue circle disappear, then something is triggering a save on the tab when it loses focus

Strange that it happens though… as you say it is disabled…


That does not happen.
It only happens (sometimes) when I switch tabs using cmd + 1 (or 2 or something)


I do have no idea of what is causing this. Have you tried to run Atom in safe mode ?


I no longer think it is a problem with atom, when I enter ‘git add .’ in the terminal it sometime triggers my gulp watch too.

Thanks for your help though :slight_smile:
