Many of the projects I am working on include files that are over 5Mo. When I am working with Atom I often click on them (wrongly) and this used to make Atom work hard for nothing 😞.
In the screencast above, for instance, I had to wait for 1 minute to be able
to work again, although the file was 5 MB only (atom 1.30.0 for the record).
I did not have such issue with
.csv files as I was using tablr
that prompts a message before opening the file. From there I knew that
what I needed was to make Atom prompt a message before opening large files.
This was actually already implemented
😄 all I had to do was change the default value (40 MB), I set it
to 1 MB.
