I’m unsure why but when I try and update and save a package.json file in my project, I get the message:
“Atom Helper.app wants to make changes. Type your password to allow this”
Having entered the password, Atom complains:
Unable to save file - permission denied 'Path/to/package.json'
It then creates an additional package.json file but with a tilde on the end e.g.
Sublime edits the file and saves as expected! Any idea why Atom has this problem?
