Unable to locate git workspace root



Apologies beforehand if this is a stupid question.

I’m a newbie to python, atom and coding in general. I’ve completed my installations and setting up packages in Windows and thought I’d explore atom a bit. I got to ‘Toggle Developer Tools’ and noticed the issues I’ve added in the image here. Is this anything I should be weary of as a beginner and will it effect any of the simple exercises and what not that I set out to complete in trying to learn python?



That shouldn’t be an issue. I get it too, but nothing has gone wrong yet.


As the error states, it is expected if the folder is not in a git repository. Whether or not your folder is a git repository doesn’t have any effect on whether or not you can run Python scripts.
