Unable to launch atom on Mac OSX 10.14.5

I installed Atom in the downloads folder and used it successfully.

When I moved the app to the Applications folder it stopped running, I force quit and have since not been able to restart it: it appears in the doc momentarily then disappears.

I tried to install it again and that didn’t solve the problem either.

Please help! Unable to work :frowning:

What happens when you rename the .atom/ folder?

resolved by deleting the atom folder and resinstalling thanks!

Reinstalling probably didn’t factor into it. When Atom just fails to start, or loads with the dev tools open and nothing else visible it’s usually a matter of one of the generated files in .atom/compile-cache/ being corrupted.
