Why my atom is slow?


I work with Express and if I using atom, it is very slow when I try to type some “string”.
I feel that the reason of this may be that the atom try to autocomplete the string, but since there are already many strings there (cause the project is Express).


What is the outcome you expect from asking this question ?
A therorical understanding of what is slow ?
Some tip on how to help your workflow ?

What is Express ? Is it slow only with Express or in general ?
What is slow - lag when you use the keyboard ?

You speak of autocomplete - that thing is very modular, do you have any special plugin that compute autocomplete result ?

Is it slow using atom --safe ? Is it slow changing the language to plaintext ?


It seems like this might be a duplicate of:

Or are you asking not the general question but specifically your copy of Atom?
