I am unable to search for any packages while I am at work. The error I am receiving is “unable to get local issuer certificate”. I am behind multiple firewalls and a webfilter. It is common for me to run in to issues with the webfilter due to the use of a Internally (via internal CA) signed cert on the webfilter. Typically all I have to do it configure the application to ignore SSL cert errors but I am not having much luck figuring it out in Atom. I should also mention that I am a new Atom user so please forgive me if I ask any “obvious” questions.
I just figured it out so I am going to post here what I did in case any new users come across it:
You need to add strict-ssl=false to C:\Users\UserName\.atom\.apmrc (or /home/UserName/.atom/.apmrc for most Linux). If this EXACT filename does not exist then create it! Don’t confuse this with OS_Dependant_Path/.atom/.apm/.apmrc as this is the base system-level config file and is over-written everytime you relaunch Atom.
This is also covered in the installation section of the Atom Flight Manual:
I added strict-ssl=false to the .apmrc file as mentioned above, it started showing the featured packages and I was able to install the teletype package but still can not search for other packages. It shows the same error “unable to get local issuer certificate”. Any idea how to get around this problem?
Same issue here. Have you found anything?
